    I have actually thought about hosting one. Only thing that keeps me from doing so is the meager means of my shop. No potty and don't really want the wife involved.

    Might sound weird.....is what it is

    I didn't think that lie would fly far..... :cool:

    If we have a casting party, I suggest it happen in May or early June. After that time it just gets too damn HOT. We have casters from all parts of the state. It would be nice if we all could attend.

    How far do y'all want to go with this. I could build a rest room in my shop. It wouldn't be hard for me to do at all.
    Also have a small pistol range to test out the projectiles if someone wanted to go all the way with the process.
    As for the heat......I have lots of fans and an air conditioned reloading room off the side of my shop.

    I don't possess any supplies or tools but I would love to be part of it to learn. I'm currently setting up to try melting aluminum.

    It does not seem that long ago, I still dont have any bullet molds but do have some lead this time.
    Can bring a huge fan so Dan doesnt melt running the chernobyl pot.

    The Magnolia BOD is now exploring the idea of offering instruction and clinics on such subjects as casting, reloading, etc.
