tip for those who will use this mold.

do not pour molten lead into mold.

it is better to dip the mold into molten lead.

thank you for the great idea
but I don't have enough lead to dop the mold into it
I'm using this to recycle used pellets that I find
when l pour the lead into the mold I always pour too much how can I get rid of the extra parts?

They did something like this during the revolutionary war to make round shot in people's homes since America had no real military equipment at the time.

they did it in the field as well, armies were mobile and made the stuff they needed when and where ever possible. Or they stole from the natives. Cuts down on supply line issues.

Guns that could shoot 50 calibre miniballs were very real military equipment at the time. Both sides had them and if ya got hit by one it would tear ya up good.

Most of the firearms of that time were .50 Caliber not just the military ones. In fact there was no distinction between military rifle and non military rifles.

Very good idea, the only suggestion I have would be to put a piece of making tape at the depth you want to drill so it sticks out both sides like a butterfly wing. When it touches the pliers you are at full depth.
