Casting up 44-40's
My supply of bullets is just about gone so I warmed up the pot and cast up some new bullets with my new Accurate Molds dual cavity mold. 43-215C and 43-220C. Ran through my lube/sizer using the .429 die and they come out at .428 which is just perfect for my WW and Remington brass. Larger than .428 using the Remington brass they chamber very tight in my 1875 revolver. They shoot nicely in my 1875, Schofield and 1873 rifle with both black and smokeless powders. Weight is 215C at 216 grains and from 220C at 219 grains. This is using a relatively soft mix. I'll load up the 220C with American Select and test them at my local indoor range and see how accurate they are.
