    Sounds like a good idea. What about copper jacketed bullets? Will the copper seperate from the lead so it can be skimmed off. Never make any weights but i'm buyin a mold this fall.

    Yes unless they are a Full Metal Jacket type bullet.

    Normal rounds once its hot the lead comes out leaving the empty copper shell.

    Dallas sounds like you found yourself a source, way to go brother!
