I have been casting many of my own bullets lately after a few years layoff. I've noticed a couple of things have changed since I used to cast. Lead prices are much higher than what I paid before and tin is sky high. With lead wheel weights being phased out it will continue to be more expensive to make your own bullets in the future. I find it's still cost effective to make your own and quite enjoyable to boot. The good news for me is I just ran across a very good supply of basically free soft lead so I'm set for the foreseeable future. Any other casters out there?
