I've been casting on and off since high school, about 15 years. It is quite simple, but you MUST follow the safety guidlines that are set forth in the loading manuals. I've been lucky with a few stupid mistakes over the years. I also cast jigheads before I made bullets, it pretty much the same thing with more attention paid to alloy temperature and type. If you can let us know how many bullets you will need over a years time, it will be easier to make the best suggestion as to what brand and type of equipment (read that: investment level$$$) for your particular needs. I started out with Lee melting pots and sizers and quality moulds of various manufacture other than Lee. After using a couple of their moulds, I wasn't too impressed. Don't get me wrong, they make bullets that will shoot just fine, but I don't much care for them. The thing to remember about bullet casting equipment is that it's an investment. If you take care of it, you'll be making bullets with it for the rest of your life and then some.
