Used my new lead pot last night for the first time. I had melted the WW's on a camp stove, fluxed it, and poured ingots. On Monday I poured some bullets using the camp stove and a dipper. It was okay but I managed to slop lead all around the workbench, mostly out of the dipper when changing from one cavity to the other. Last night using the Lee pot there was no lead spilled on the bench and I could fill the mould twice as fast as with the dipper. For someone on a budget (I have a boat, a Corvette, and a wife to support), the Lee pot is a good way to go for about $50 w/shipping. The only drawback I could find was that it only holds 10 pounds of lead. By the time the mould was at the perfect temp and I was really cranking them out, I had to stop and add more ingots to the pot. I guess to keep pouring I could have fired up the camp stove and had the lead hot before adding it to the Lee pot. I'm looking forward to using it to make some sinkers next week.
