Lee .312 round ball mould. I just cast up about 1500 over the weekend. I cast them a little hard (6 parts virgin lead and 1 part linotype). Pellets are 45 grains each. 12 to a shell. 1 1/2 oz + buffer (one .45 ACP case full).

Just trying to improve myself here. What grammar issue? I failed to capitalize "single", but the rest looks OK to me even though it is not all in complete sentences.

Ought is correct

this is the problem ought is spelled right but the way you used it is wrong. single 0 and double 00 are numbers but i could be wrong it just stood out when i seen it and guys "like me who live in glass house should not throw rocks" but i just wanted to be right once

Ought is the normally accepted spelling for buckshot. Yes it is also written as a zero, but pronounced by many as "ought". It is not "double zero buckshot". Nice try.

Never heard of the 30 OUGHT six? Similar to Jethro of the Beverly Hillbillies that wished to become a "double naught spy".

I thought you were poking fun at the Brit spelling of mold. Being married to one, our kids still tend to add a U to color.

I started to mention the double naught spy, but did not want to expand the arguement too much.

I too have cast my own pistol and revolver bullets (mostly .44 and .45 with a few .38s) for over 30 years. They always shoot well with excellent accuracy. I like the Lee Liquid Alox bullet lube.
I have also had good luck with reduced loads and cast gas check bullets in my M1903s.
