Mold And Lead Temperature

Mold And Lead Temperature

A good indicator of mold/lead temperature is the puddle that forms on top of the mold as it is filled. This puddle should remain liquid for 3 to 5 seconds after the flow of lead is cut off. If the puddle solidifies as you fill the mold, then the lead is probably doing the same thing inside the mold, resulting in a wrinkled, undersized bullet.
