I worked with Tom at Accurate Molds and had him create ideas I had for cap n ball bullets. This is what he made for me, and that I ought to receive in a few more weeks: http://accuratemolds.com/bullet_detail.php?bullet=45-170C-D.png This one I had the idea for as I read a post of someone loading a ~160 grn .45 Colt bullet and it working well for him. He mentioned it was about the same length as a ball, which gave him the same powder charge with a heavier bullet. This bullet had been 160 grns, but I had the upper driving band lengthened to increase pressure and velocity, as well as made the meplat wider. http://accuratemolds.com/bullet_detail.php?bullet=45-195C-D.png This is what was created when trying to keep the length that of a ball. http://accuratemolds.com/bullet_detail.php?bullet=45-285C-D.png This I had made for hunting things that may want retribution. It's shorter than a typical bullet of its weight so as not to take up precious powder capacity. I have a Pietta Remington '58, and often read that they don't do well with conicals likely due to the slow twist. As the two lighter bullets aren't really longer than a ball I'm hoping these prove to be accurate. I'm anxiously awaiting my mold so I can give 'em a try!
