This is the first 45 Colt bullet I produced in my bullet
business. I sold a ton of them over the years. John Taffin
used this in one of his Vaqueros & wrote it up in American
Handgunner I believe. That one article launched 3 months
of nearly exclusive casting of this bullet to fill orders.

Lynn, that's a nice straight forward looking bullet.
I suspect it truly is bodacious in a 45 Colt!

Thanks for sharing the pics & data.

My mould was cut using an H&G cherrie. Ballisti-Cast
purchased most of that company. My mould was cut in 2002
if memory serves.

Bears a resemblance to an Ideal 454424 especially the
base and lube groove. My brother has my old single cavity
of that. He sizes it for his SAA and leaves it unsized
for the Guide Gun I gave him a couple years back.

Yes sir, that bullet you cast there is a looker!
Reckon I'll have to find me another old Ideal mould now.
Lynn, ya done made me homesick for a big bad 45 SWC
again!

It's amazing Wade how many of these I sold. People liked
them. I had two 4 cavity Ballisti-Cast moulds I used along
with a 4 cavity Lyman 429421 I would run together. I could
average a 1000 bullets an hour. No wonder my hands & wrist
hurt sometimes.
