    Can you advise how the 10. 42498HP casts, as far as the diameter? Old notes I see on this one says that the bullets should sized to .428 for rifles and smaller for pistols. Curious if they drop larger than .428 to start with?

    Thanks.

    Can you tell me where you found your information? I went to "Ol' Buffalo Bullet Mold Tables" and it is not listed. They go from 419 to 427. I sure would like to see what that bullet looks like.
    OK folks, there is only two ways to do this. My way or my other way.

    It is one I have hoarded, not used. Don't know on the diameter except some references to it dropping at 428 max on the internet. Not going to have ability to fire up the pot for a while.

    My understanding is post ww2 they were renumberred 42798 then 427098. This was a 44-40 bullet.

    1929 Ideal Catalog.

    At the time, the solid RN was the 42498, and the HP was called the 42499.
