many questions, new at casting and reloadin

I've shot quite a fee of those lee bullets through my 480, and all have been cast from straight wheelweights. Out of habbit, I water quench mine to harden them, and you simply can't push them fast enough in the 480 to cause leading. Even air cooled, the ww bullet will be plenty hard. The fastest you can push that bullet out of the 480 w/o running the pressures up is 1200 fps, w/ 21 gr H-110. If you want a fun load, use 7 gr Unique for ~600 fps and very little recoil.
