    CLOSED: Arsenal New Design 45-230 wfn 45 acp/45 colt

    Hello Guys and Thanks for looking!

    This is a design I drew up to help with tight throat pistol barrels and or revolver throats.
    The front band tapers from .450 to .452. to help with having to seat so deep to get proper OAL. This is cloned from the famous Lyman 452374 standard ball cast bullet.
    I have also made the nose as wide as possible but still feed well in all auto pistols.
    Some 1911 designs run into a hitch with to wide of a meplate, but this one should run like water through a sieve!
    I choose to leave out the crimp groove because you can taper crimp a 45 Colt and it will run just fine.
    That is how I do it and receive my best accuracy that way
    This should cast out right at 228-230 with WW + 2% tin.
    This mold should shuck bullets like corn off the cobb the slight draft on the nose, slight radious on the meplate and the nice taper on the lube groove will allow them to just jump out of the cavity!
    I have found this to be true on a couple other design that I put together. Just open the mold and they fall right out

    This one will take 5 to go active and 10 to close and machine.
    Turn around time will be around a week or so once it close's

    Cost is -

    Aluminum 3 Cavity - $63 is your cost with discount
    Aluminum 4 Cavity - $67 is your cost with discount
    Brass 4 Cavity - $85 is your cost with discount
    Aluminum 5 Cavity - $71 is your cost with discount

    There will be shipping costs added to this but no worries it’s just USPS flat rate.

    Sorry no hollow points

    You may specify your diameter, with or without lube groove, and plain base or gas check.

    Are you able to make this in a .455" diameter to fit cylinder throats of Colt New Service and S&W .45 ACP Hand Ejector M1917s?
    The ENEMY is listening.
    HE wants to know what YOU know.
    Keep it to yourself.

    What are the chances of a two cav w/lube setup for a mastercaster? This would be a great alternative to a LRN 230g
