When melting lead using Lyman Reloading Cast Iron Lead Pot, you need Lee Ingot Mold to make ingots.
Lyman Reloading Cast Iron Lead Pot
A lot of people were scared by the ammo shortages. So they decided to start making their own ammo. Shotgun shell reloading is very easy.
To start casting slugs you need to find lead, melt it, remove junk and make ingots for future use.
If you don’t want to buy lead you can find cheap lead in many places:
1. Old car batteries
2. Wheel weights
3. Scrap yards
4. Shooting range
You will need Lyman Reloading Cast Iron Lead Pot to melt the lead. This cast iron pot has 10 lb. capacity and lets you use any heat source for melting lead. This is very important, especially for those who start casting slugs to be more independent.
Anti-drip pour spout is very convenient. Walls of the Lyman Cast Iron Lead Pot are very thick, it takes some time to make it hot but when you start melting lead it stays hot for a long time.
Lee Lead Ladle is small and handy tool to remove junk from lead.

I am very interested in reloading of shotgun ammunition. My idea is to have all the tools I need to make ammo at home. I want to be able to cast my own slugs and buckshot. I am waiting for Lee Production Pot IV to arrive.
It must be noted first that lead is a toxin and must be handled properly to prevent lead poisoning. Always wear protective gloves, face mask and eye protection when handling molten lead or lead bars.
Received my MTM Mini Digital Reloading Scale for gun powder and bullets. This is very nice scale which I will be using for reloading of shotshells.
This scale is very good and high-quality product. It has a capacity of 1200 grains and measures in grains, grams, carats and ounces to within +/-.1 grain.
Purchased some shotshell reloading supplies. Bought smokeless powder, shotshells with primers and slugs. Will start reloading soon. Need to buy several more tools and some other shotshell components.
Can’t wait to start reloading!
