ok thy are boolits.... AND...
That is super good looking casting and size&Lubing.
I take it you are not into casting and reloading.
Casting No reloading yes.
Oh!!! Glad to set me right.
I'm not; can you dumb it down for me a bit? What caliber are these or for what firearm? What is that dark stripe?
I like to post a picture now & then with no text just to see what is said.
This bullet is a 45 mostly used in a 45 Colt cartridge. It can be sized .452, .453, or .454. It is a clone of the RCBS 45-270-SAA.
This is from a 4 cavity mould from HiHec made of brass. The bullet in picture weighes 290 grains & is cast from straight air cooled wheel weights testing 12-13 BHN, my favorite hardness for 20-30,000 psi loads.
The dark Stripe is lube. Cast bullets use lube & most have a lube groove. That's what you're seeing.
290gr? That seems pretty hefty; i think my lil .45ACP rounds use 230gr bullets. Will you use them in a cowboy-type competition or for some kind of hunting? It looks like it would hit like a big flat truck.
Those come out very nice.. Good work
That is a hefty .45 colt! For a rifle? I got 500 160gr for plinking in my .44-40 1892 rifle and also use them in my 1858 new Army. 205 hard cast are for more fun in .44-40. I have cast bullets for 6.5, .308, 8mm, .357, 9mm, 10mm, .44-40. and lets not forget the thumpers for 9.3, 285gr. All of the rifle calibers make great hunting rounds for 100 yards. 1200fps at the muzzle. Ever hear the term, hit w/ a lead weight!
Those are purty bullets!
I like the look of those. Nice work.
These are at their best for hunting but are also good for long range shooting. I've not tried this bullet way out there but I'm sure it will do a good job as most Keith bullets do. I'll try to post some targets I shot with the 44 Keith.
