HI EVERYONE I HAVE A ?,
i'm very new to casting so please humor me , when the bullets come out of the mold with what i call wrinkles (i'm using lee 45.70 mold ),,iread the insructions it came with and followed them to the letter ,well what i'm asking is why the wrinkles?. is my mold too cold ,or too hot ,or what,? thanks for listening to my rambling,adrians :hunt: :taz:
I have had several new Lee molds that seem to need ” breaking in ” .
Wash it with liquid dish soap & warm water . Scrub with an old tooth brush . Rinse , rinse , rinse .
Scrub with an old tooth brush & tooth paste ( mild abrasive ) . Rinse , rinse , rinse .
Dry the mold 100&
Set your temp on your pot to max and cast as fast and furious as you can . I am talking about running it HOT .
When you start getting good bullets , experiment by gradually turning the temp down . Run the temp as cold as you can and still get good bullets .
The mold should work ” normally ” from now on .
