But I do load 30 caliber buck and a 2 ball load with 54 caliber muzzleloader balls. I keep saying I am going to buy a .60 RB Lee mold because its a perfect fit in a 20ga hull. The old Punkin ball load. For shot I need to order some .24 #4 loads from BPI. Those make a nice 20ga Buck Shot load.
Those are the powder and shot bushings. Use a SCALE though, most bushings, no matter what brand, usually are off a little.
Follow the instructions that came with the machine and you'll be fine. Deviate from those at your own risk.
You need a load to fit your components not your gun; this is not metallic
Provided you have good lead, just keep pouring to heat it up. Pour the sprue cutter funnel full of lead to. That steel can soak up a lot of energy. Try to line up the hole so it goes straight in and FAST and HOT.
Don't stop and study on it just because the first one or two sets look bad. They just about always do.
Dab a little anti sieze on those pins that line up the two pieces of mold. I use a Q tip for that.
