    No Zinc.It' a nono.Tin i what you want to add.One lb of 50/50 to nine lbs of lead should be good for boolits moving less than 1600fp.

    I'v never used the releace spray,My Old Lyman Caster book talked about useing a flame.
    The idea is to hold a match or something to the mould cavaty to deposit a layer of soot.
    Works for me with 12ga slug and 45acp.

    Damn. I'm bummed out to hear that Glocks should not be fed cast bullets. What is the reason for this. Also, if I do get into casting the most common round I would be doing is .223 being fed to a Colt M4 with a 1:7 twist.

    High pressure, high velocity and aggressive twist. Should I scrap this idea?

    Probably. Glocks polygonal bbl is not friendly to cast. They recommend no reloads or a voided warrenty. I have not shot lead in my 1:7 AR but do OK in the 223 bolt.
