You want to mail me some?

What's you got to shoot'em with?

Okay, I'm new and learning. What exactly are those and what are they shot out of or used for? Let me take a guess and say they are bullets to be seated on some brass eventually. Am I close?

WOC they are cast bullets that look to be 45 caliber and maybe about 240gr. So I am guessing for a 45 Long Colt.

What caliper and weight are they? I've got 38s, 357s, 44s and 45 ACP.

The bullets in question are 255 grain, .430 diameter. This is a clone of the H&G 503 from a HiMec mould. Elmer Keith shot this bullet {or something real close} in his 44s.

Nice job. No wonder using a fine mold block. Your lube and sizer is working on time, very good. Ole Elmer used the Lyman #429244 with a 1 to 1 alloy of WWS to linotype. He was a dyed in the wool fan of 2400 powder. Nice casting. good luck.:)

Creeker, I would be happy to take as many as you'll send me. My 44 mags need some range time soon.

Sounds like you 44s are hungry.
