Cool looking machine Nick.
How many molds on that machine?
Can't wait to see the slugs you make with it

Machine holds 6 molds at a time.  They have to be the same weight because the pour time is identical to all molds.  If you set the molds up with different weights they would not fill out the larger bullets or the smaller bullet molds would over pour and get lead everywhere.  Every time the machine cycles it spits out 2 bullets.  That video was not quite all the way up so I could get a little faster production out of it.  It was making .308 bullets in the video and I had .45 molds in two of the slots because I only have 4 .308 molds and needed something to catch the lead in the empty slots.

When this is up and running I will put these bullets on my site and will be way cheaper than the swaged bullets.

Ok, $500.  $200 down and $75/mo for 2 years.

Oops, sorry.  All those years running the finance department at the car dealerships is hard to get out of me   ::)

I believe it will do .22's.  I have a .22 design in for review with the CNC shop to see if it will work.  I plan to offer even .177 if they will pour.  I will eventually have for each caliber - .177 and .22 if they will pour, .250, .257, .300, .308, .40, .452/.457 and .50 cal.

I also have a diabolo pellet mold for 45 and 50 waiting to be cut.  I expect it in a couple of weeks.  It is only one mold to see if it works and if it does I will order the other 5 for each caliber and make on this machine.

I posted a picture of the bullet that came out during the video.  I am happy since this is the first trail run on the machine.  The picture is a .308 around 111 grains put through my sizer.

Thanks Bob.  Been waiting a long time to get this machine up and running. Going to make a bunch tomorrow and I got some other molds to run as well.  I will post pics of other bullets too.
