I have some lever actions [original] that I want to cast bullets for.
Winchester 1886 45-70
Winchester 1886 40-82
Marlin 45 govt. I think 45-70
Looking through the dies available it instantly became very apparent that I did not know how to choose the proper one. My Sharps and 45-70 Springfield , being single shot rifles the decision is easy but for a lever action I have to insure that the cartridge will feed correctly. How do I choose a design and size of a bullet? Blunt end, pointed end, rounded end, how heavy? How long? and are lever action bullets pan lubed the same as my single shot bullets? Thanks BB
