It's like everything else in life. If you are careful and take precautions, accidents are avoided.
That's why they don't allow cast lead bullets at indoor ranges. (At least, in California they don't.) Basic safety precautions. Especially if you work at an indoor range.
You are actually much more likely to get hurt or killed in a car accident, or by some Doctor who isn't really paying attention, then you are to be hurt or killed shooting, reloading and casting bullets.
Somebody ought to tell Diane Fienstien that, if the stupid b*&^% would only listen...

I'm using Meister Hard Cast 230 gr RN, followed by 5.1 gr of Win 231, and a CCI 300 at the bottom of the stack to start it off.
Accuracy is great, and no leading! Lots of carbon though.
I have 7 differant powders here and stated with Red Dot and it gave lousy results, but the 231 was awesome. Dirty But accurate! It always gave great results in .357 and .44.
A good setup for casting indoors is a hood with an exhaust fan to the outside over the lead pot. Haven't cast for years. Lead around here seems tough to get, shipping it in raises the cost almost to the price of pre-made bullets.

Even Pick your part, (local junkyard) has gotten tough on lead. It used to be that I pays my 2 bucks to get in, and then fill my pockets and tool box with wheelweights and nobody cared. Now, all the wheelweights are removed before the car goes to the rows.
Somebody ought to tell these EPA enviromental wacko types to back off. Or at least do something useful, like tell them to go look up "Sodium Flouride" in the dictionary or something...

Glad to see you are now enjoying your Thompson without any Jams. And if your rear sight is still attached, maybe Kahr finally fixed that problem.
