    So far just the first rounds fired from Federal Fusion ammo. The Hornady muzzleloader bullets I have did load but we’re still tight to push in. I’m thinking the throat is too small and I’m sure TC won’t like the fact it’s being reloaded. It’s a...

    I’d like to think it was the bullet but after resizing the brass just trying to get it in is a little snug. Goes in but add 2/1000 to it and it sticks about 1/2 way in. I was able to load a 452 Hornady muzzle loading bullet in and it wet but was...

    Now dies are here. Rcbs. The throat appears too small to get a loaded .452 cast without a lot of force. Even the factory was snug and I pulled one and it’s .451. May have to buy a few jacketed samples or coated lead at 451 and see if I have the same...

    I have my own water dropped 45 bullets sized to 452 and lubed with BAC. Bullets weighed out after culled are 460 grain flat nose. Dies should be here today. Lyman 50th doesn't use very many powders I have. I plan on 2400 or Unique if I can. I...

    I have a piece of copper flat that I mounted an square electrical box with the end cut out of it sit on my hot plate and it acts as an oven. I have it under the exhaust fan so I don't have to worry about the galvanized box giving off any fumes.

    When I purchased my 1911 I chose the RIA Ultra FS. I chose it for the adjustable rear sight. The price was right and I love how it shoots. I did send the barrel to DougGuy to get it throated and crowned. It eats anything I feed it. It was worth...

    My go to bullet is the 452460 SWC at 200gr. I have that mold in the Lyman 4 cav. and I just picked up the 6 cav. clone from MP molds. When the weather warms I will put it to good use.

    I has the RIA Ultra FS in 45 ACP. I sent my barrels to DougGuy and had him work his magic on them. They feed anything I put in it. I am still trying to settle on what mags I will be using for them. I would not call it a tack driver but that is...

    What did you use for lubricant to run powder coated bullets through the sizing die.

    Murf205. What did you size your cast bullets at. In my Henry 45 I sized to .454. I haven’t slugged this one yet but I have a bunch of 45 loaded up sized at .452 which is what revolver needed. Looks like most factory bullets are .451.

    Hello, just ordered a 460 barrel for my TC Encore and I cast a 260 grain bullet from a NOE mold. I need another for the 454 and 460. Not sure what these single shots may like. Iíll just use the mold from Al for the 45 and it may be ok for 454 not...
