Not sure what your willing to spend but Bells of Hythe offers one.
Yes, here:

I have received a sample from them, already made a video which is awaiting approval (should be online soon).

I always give commercial companies the chance to preview a video about their products, to give them a chance to clear misunderstandings. This one came out glowing, so don't expect much critizism.

Anyway, it worked great. I made 100 rounds of 16 mm balls in no time, from scrap lead that I got for free. I did use a Lee melting pot, which speeds up the procedure as you just pull up a lever and the lead pours into the mould.

I do confirm that casting lead bullets is somewhat addictive.

Lead smoke is dangerous indeed. It usually stops smoking when it is molten, though.

I did the casting outside, in fresh air, and of course I did wear safety glasses, a long sleeve jacket and gloves. I also had a fire extinguisher close by. All these safety precautions are shown in my video.
