I poured about 50 lead balls yesterday. I did it to show the grandkids how our forefathers used to make thier own projectiles. I haven't made my own in a long while as I am still working down the 800 or so rounds I bought on sale at Wal-Mart several years ago. I used to make my own balls quite often, but haven't since that large purchase. I shoot less than 100 rounds a year out of the flintlock, so I am good to go for a while yet before I run out. Anyway, do you make your own roundballs or conicals?
