    from post #5 I have acquired new brass and dies and have cast some of the 135gr RD boolits, BUT I am embarrassed to say :oops:, I haven't done anything else with this project yet. Just too many other yard/garden projects needed to be done...

    I've always equated the term elasticity of a boolit alloy with "spring back" when a boolit is sized, and not necessarily the malleability or toughness. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?68121-Did-some-experiments-on-sizer-size Some...

    I suspect he is talking about Lee's 45 cal 252gr SWC https://leeprecision.com/mold-dc-452-252-swc.html I have that mold, it's one that I like for 45 Colt, as well as 45acp Revolvers.

    Luckily for me, all my new MP molds arrived in a week to 10 days. I've read other members experienced waiting up to 4 weeks if it was heldback at customs.

    An extreme test for this is to put a bit of lube (a chunk the size of a boolit) on a paper towel, then set it on the dash of a closed up car on a sunny day. Look and feel if any oil migrates to the towel.

    I'd won a pair of new cast iron skillets last year. Both were rough on the inside. I took one to the shop to smooth it out, left the other one rough. I used them equally, and the rough one seasoned much better and faster than the smooth one.

    If I were making a boolit lube to fit your parameters "I like that it is an easy formula to make, just a few common ingredients and relatively quick to make". I'd use 357Maximum's recipe for 666+1, AKA: Satan's lube. But it does get soft in high...

    I hope you don't get discouraged easily. When I first started casting, before I ordered a Lee bottom pour pot, I tried to cast a few with a Lee ladle and a old used 45 cal 2 cavity Lee mold. I didn't have any success, but I was doing this while...

    You would have problems with the revolver in this area. Only one chamber at a time is permitted to be loaded at a time, due to a stupid accident by a pilgrim a few years ago. Managed to shoot himself putting the gun in a shoulder holster.
