Apply a very light coat and the bullets just fell out of my Lee 6 cavity mold. Cleans up after a casting session with Acetone or MEK. I noticed no difference in bullet size while using the product. Casted about 1500 bullets with it so far.
I put a lot of lead through my molds. Usually making about 400 per session. I use 9mm and 45 cal molds at the same time. Filling one before empting and refilling the other so I can keep on working without having to wait for the molten lead to cool down. When I'm done with one, the other it ready. So after about 200 bullets the molds could use a bit more release agent. Even with this spray, I end up still having to bang the molds with a wooded stick to release some of the bullets. I use 6 cavity molds and there are usually 2 or 3 that need a little encouragement to leave the mold. That's where the big stick becomes very useful. I do like the stuff though, because without it I would be banging the molds to get each one of them out.
If your making your own bullet heads or sinkers, you need this on your molds. The can will last a long time. You need to clean your molds with Brake Cleaner and lubricate before each use. Only spray a light coat on your molds or wherever you don't want the lead to stick. Very easy release from the mold. No comparison to the old match trick. Too thick of a coat will make a poor cast.
