Out shooting the rock again but won’t bore you with another video. This time I used a machine cast 45-180-FP
sized .452 with Ballisti-Cast hard lube. While they lead a bit I had better hits over the Lee 45-230-TCN. The
load of 4 grains of Promo wasn’t enough to seal the cases against the chambers.

I'm a big fan of ballistics cast molds. I have their 270 gr in .451 and
.454.

So the lighter bullet with less bearing surface did well. I like the nose profile on that bullet. Bet its a snap to cast too. That short must be a single lube groove too huh? You're a sharp man, and you'll eliminate the lead issue and find the right load to stop the blow by in the chambers shortly.

I'm going to work some with the bullet. The only hang up,
I don't have a mould.

Ok, so it's a commercially cast bullet then. Is that what you meant by "machine cast"? See, I'm sorta like a recluse in that I don't follow the shooting world that close anymore.

Looks great LAH, I've been loading those 185 gr Lyman
Devastators which are the cast HP. Single cavity.
Loaded those with Red Dot just to shoot a conceal carry
class qualifier...

Sorry Ranger I didn't make that clear. I never cast
these. A business southeast of here did. When we were
both in business we traded bullets & work from time to
time. He runs a Ballisti-Cast machine. These bullets were
cast for 92-6-2 which he water quenched making them
extremely hard. He sized them .452 & lubed them with hard
lube.

He sold these in bulk to me by weight. I would box them &
sell them under the label of Blasting Bullets. These are
a few I had left over. I've found the best way to rid
yourself of excess bullets is to load & shoot them. If
nothing else it gives you trigger time.

Again, sorry I didn't make that clear.

I like the looks of that bullet but never shot them.
