I have plenty of brass, primers, pure lead and powder but am running short of bullets. Where can I get molds for .357/.38spcl and 45acp? Also the supplemental metals to make the the right alloy without needing a sizing die for correct bullet diameter?

Try http://castboolits.gunloads.com/forum.php. Wealth of info. I cast .38/.357 among others and use wheel weights, or Lyman #2 alloy. Lee moulds are a good starting point, and Alox lube. Be exceedingly careful, because it's addictive. Buy a Cast Bullet book and enjoy.

LEE TL 452-230 molds for .45
LEE TL 358-158 molds for .38/.357
Any LEE mold with TL before caliber and weight is a "tumble lube" design with fine lube bands that work well with liquid ALOX bullet lube. These can also be used without sizing just as they drop from the mold. They come in two and six cavity molds. I have shot thousands of these bullets and they work great. I mix my own liquid lube with 40% LEE liquid ALOX...40% Johnsons Paste Wax and 10% odorless mineral spirits...less messy than pure LEE ALOX when it dries. I do 90% of my casting with range scrap picked up from my local range...with some pure lead mixed with wheel weights. I have not had major leading issues...to be honest...really no issues at all. I can truthfully say I do enjoy casting my own bullets and shooting them in my reloads...a sense of satisfaction that it is all my own doing so to speak.

I alloy my wheel weight lead with pewter. Pewter is mostly tin. You can find it at most thrift stores. Just make sure it actually says "pewter" somewhere on the bottom. Cups or mugs are the easiest to find.
