Casting brass or copper bullets? anyone?

Post by hawcer on Thu Aug 18, 2011 9:03 am

has anyone tried casting solid brass or copper bullets? I realize it would prolly require steel molds and a hotter furnace....

Maybe even zinc?

How about you Pathfinder?...I know you have the goods to accomplish such a task.

I know that Mrmat4570 had turned some bullets out of copper I believe it is on his lathe. These wer for his 4570.. Not sure about pouring.

I had thought about melting some zink in a different pot as not to mess my good one up and try casting zinc. Probably won't be a pretty looking bullet with all the wrinkles but may work....
