Best book on bullet casting?
« on: January 24, 2013, 09:24:31 pm »
I've been casting bullets for my muzzle loaders for many years. I have a lot of lead, a furnace and round ball molds. I'd like to get a good bullet casting book for casting bullets for reloading brass cartridges. Any recommendations?

    Lyman's handbook on cast bullets is probably the bible of this...

    IllinoisThere’s a story about a turtle and a scorpion. Scorpion is stranded on a river bank. Turtle sees this and asks Scorpion to get on his back and he’ll take him across the river. Scorpion gets on Turtle’s back and they go into the river. When they’re about halfway across, Scorpion stings Turtle. As Turtle is sinking, knowing they’re both going to die, he asks Scorpion "Why did you sting me, we’re both going to die?" and Scorpion says "It’s not my fault; it’s what I am."

    Xsquidgator hit it.  That's the best single resource book to have if you have only one.
    This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries

    Agree with the recommendations of Lyman's book and Castboolits website.

    Printed book, definitely the Lyman Cast Bullet Handbook.  Be sure to get the latest edition written by Mike Venturino.

    The cast boolits forum is also a good spot.

    I might suggest another more structured online location:  http://www.lasc.us/ArticleIndex.htm

    Many thanks for all the help! I ordered the Lyman book and down loaded "From Ingot to Target".
