    45 semi wadcutter 225 grain

    I am trying to duplicate the federal 45 colt 225 grain semi wadcutter load. I can not easily find a mold or bullet supplier. Anyone know where I can get the mold or bullets?

    Is this the bullet you had in mind?

    I have an 80's NEI 4 cav mold that drops em at 225gr, SWC. I doubt it is still made. It is more elongated than the one above.

    +1 on dbldblu's recommendation.

    That RCBS 230 grain mold casts a wonderfully accurate slug. It's all I use for a moderate weight .45 Colt load, over some TiteGroup or 700X for mild loads. Or 231 or Unique for a little more impact.
