.22 Air Rifle bullet mold

Over on Cast boolits there is a group buy going for a 30gr air rifle bullet mold in .22 - for those thinking about casting their own...
I own a custom MIhec mold for 45acp, and can attest to the quality of their molds. Whether the bullet design offered works in your particular rifle, I cant say...

Casting larger lead bullets (like your .45's) is much easier than small caliber because the mold doesn't heat up enough and you get wrinkled bullets. It will be interesting to see what they find out and how well they cast once the mold is made. You don't find many small caliber bullets molds for the reasons I stated.
That's a shame I would have been interested in creating my own low caliber pellets. I have several pounds of used tire balancing weights. When my nephews were in scouting, I helped them design and build their pinewood derby cars resulting in a collection of trophies. I melted lead to make custom shaped weights for the car design. Only a small number of weights were needed so I created my molds out of spare pinewood blocks.

I save all of the old lead wheel weights that I take off of the motorcycle tires I change I have a shoebox full.
