Can anyone point me in the direction of some good websites on bullet casting?

I'm really interested in info about most accurate bullet molds etc.

Lots of good stuff there.

I use a Lee 6 cavity aluminum mold to make 175 gr. SWC bullets for my XD. I use the low cost, Lee push through sizer and lube with Lee Liquid Alox. I melt wheel weights down in a 7"x5" cast iron pot on a Coleman stove and ladle pour in the the 6 banger. Here's a target with example of the Lee bullet with the tumble lube design shot at 7 yards.

those are some great groups.

I was wondering I guess more for rifle bullet casting. However if I got into it it could eventually turn into handgun calibers as well.

I was afraid somehow home cast bullets would be less accurate than machine made?

beardman2,

I have no experience with casting bullets for rifles but there's alot of guys who do on the cast boolit forum.

Just remember, higher velocity means more leading so your rifle bore will need to be cleaned quite frequently.
