  1. Bullet Casting & Coating MegaThread

    Now those look great!
  2. Bullet Casting & Coating MegaThread

    Sounds pretty reasonable to me
  3. Bullet Casting & Coating MegaThread

    I see you edited the post. Did you make a type or did you actually do the 15-150 Mix?
  4. Bullet Casting & Coating MegaThread

    They do look a touch thick but they look pretty consistent.
  5. Bullet Casting & Coating MegaThread

    Well how did they shoot? I hate seeing pics like this. They make me want to spend money on a new gun just so I can load ammo that looks that good. Nice work!
  6. .45 ACP AR PCC Who's built one?

    RMW extreme is your best bet. Cheaper than CNC and he’s makes DI uppers.
  7. Bullet Casting & Coating MegaThread

    Not bad at all.
  8. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    @The Goose might be able to explain better. HB was used for black powder projectiles to help bump up the bullet to seal the bore better. I believe it had to do with using an undersized bullet that would fit in a fouled chamber but still needed to bump up. Black powder would bump up a solid base...
  9. .38 spl cut down

    Ahh i see. Yeah i would check brian enos forums for some first hadn't info. In my experience with 38/357 just toss a brush through it now and then so it doesn't leave a carbon ring. I can't see shorter cartridges really ruining a chamber with mouse fart loads of fast burning pistol powder. Now...
  10. .38 spl cut down

    I have done it but I’ve heard it was popular in 627s for a time due to shorter cartridges reloading easier on moon clips. For some reason my iBooks has once again purged my PDFs so I guess I won’t post load data.
  11. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Not needed really. I guess it helps when trying to push some higher velocities with rifle cartridges.
  12. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Looking good. Looks a little thick on the coating. I would try a little less coating and don’t shake as long. How did they do on the wipe and smash test?
  13. 2021 NES Bullet Casting Seminar Feeler?

    I would check the accurate moulds website and grab some dimensions. Maybe I can match something up later for you.
  14. 2021 NES Bullet Casting Seminar Feeler?

    There’s only one way to find out. Well maybe a couple ways. Buy some Lehigh defense. @pastera would be the one would could turn up some stuff for testing.
  15. 2021 NES Bullet Casting Seminar Feeler?

    Anything is possible but is it worth it? What are you looking to accomplish with these bullets? Would it be worth turning the tungsten to an exact shape and possibly having a custom bullet mould made to house the rod properly? Casting copper takes a whole new level of heat and moulds and tools...
