My Lortone has no trouble turning a full load of lead either. But, that's one jar only. Even if both jars only weigh the rated 3 pounds each, the mill won't turn with both jars. I believe the weight distribution in the jars is the reason. If both jars had ceramic media, I bet they'd both turn just fine. But, you'd have to mill for way longer! So there's no free lunch, it seems ;)

The harbor freight mill was my first and I milled kilos with it. I used it for my first 6 months Pyro. The weight of lead helps to push the sulfur dextrin and kno3 particles into the coal particles. I've made sum hot powder with that little mill
