    This has probably been answered and although I ran a search could not find it... In my last run the lead in shot maker had a blue skim on it.

    Thanks for your help.

    Sounds like you may have had some copper on your lead when your put it in your machine, where did you get the lead?

    Thanks for your input... The lead is from wheel weights.. I will check into getting a thermometer. Makes sense since the blue color is in the upper part where it is shallow...
