I wanted to post a follow-up to a casting question I had late last year. I was looking into getting into casting and had a member here, @RedlegEd, respond and offer to show me the ropes. Ed had me over two times, once to check out his casting setup and another time to let me cast and powder coat before i invested in my own equipment. I had a great time and can't thank Ed enough for his help and guidance. I enjoyed it enough to invest in a Lee 4-20 pot, a 9mm mould, some lead and powder coat. I was recently was able to get it all setup and use it all for the first time to cast a couple hundred projectiles and powder coat them all.  Here are some pictures of all I was able to accomplish. I wanted to give Ed a big shout out here for all his help and patience.

Just wait till you cast, powder coat and load a large rifle round and think, "Wow that looks like lip stick!".

I have not. I need to size/load and then get out to the range. Hopefully it won't take too long to get to a local range but I'll come back and post pics.

Is that from a Lee mold? Bullets look good by the way.

      Found some 9mm Blackwater ammo locally and was wondering if anybody has used it. Looks like good ammo just never heard anything about it.
      Thanks
