Casting pot...need a new one

Post by lablover on 8/12/2018, 3:17 pm

wish I had a older rcbs pro melt but none to be found.  The new pro melt2 not available yet.  Lyman mag25 gets soso reviews.  Any other options out there?  Right now got my trusty Lee 4-20 but she’s getting tired.

Anyone got a old rcbs collecting dust?  Any good reviews on the mag 25

Thanks gents

I love my Lynam Mag 25. Works beautifully. Only complaint is that the guide for the molds is narrow for Lee and MP molds, but that is a nit since they just sit on top and pour just fine. Overall as cheap or cheaper than building a PID and booger'ing up a Lee pot.

Lee pot works fine for me once you get used to the quirks.

Oh I agree, I just feel the need for a upgrade

It's nice to have 20# at temperature...you can run a good while. I don't let it run to empty in order to keep the nozzle clean.

I think you can buy just the 40# pot that is on the Master Caster from Magma

I have a RCBS promelt that RCBS rebuilt that has been used once or twice since and just sitting for years, I had bought a Magma Master Caster. I no longer cast, the Promelt is all I have left of my casting equipment.
