This is a group buy for a .360 diameter hollow base/ nose pour modification of the popular Hensley & Gibbs #50 wadcutter bullet for 38 special.
Have sketched up a 146gr solid, ~128gr cone or dome HB cavity (identical HB cavity to the 358431, a HB version of the 358429)
Added the cone design, I estimate it could have be driven a little faster with a wider margin of safety, and exhibit better bullet base fillout.
I cannot stress enough a hollow base version is for gallery/ target loads only
, and serves to better shoot point of aim, using less powder and lead.
Either of the three configurations will give the shooter room to experiment for optimum accuracy with given firearm and powder selection .
Benefits of a hollow base:
Allows skirt to open for better obturation at lower pressures & gallery loads. Less lead, less powder, better accuracy.
Benefits of a nose pour design:
Base forms more consistently, and is protected from opening/closing of the sprue plate (gaps, tear outs, improper fill out, voids, dings) The nose of a bullet can take far more abuse than the base can, and more consistent bullet bases means more consistent group size.
please specify # of cavities, plain base or gas check, specific or all pins, with your disguised email.
