    .40 caliber keith or boser for .38-40/.401 Herter

    I have a .401 Herter Powermag, as does my son. We are interested in Keith style bullet for these revolvers, possibly a Boser design with some modifications, since I haven't seen too many reports that they ever shot that well. I don't know if there would be any bleed over interest with those currently owning or planning to buy 10mm revolvers.

    Does anybody else have any input, suggestions, or interest?

    Not a Keith, but a Boser "ash can" from Accurate which I shoot in a custom 10mm Ruger and also a John Taylor Bunny Gun. No "group buy" is needed, as Tom has a bunch of 10mm revolver designs from 182 to 260 grains for your consideration in the online catalog with 3 weeks delivery.

    I have one mold from Accurate Molds for my .401 and my eye on another one...and now I have a hankering for the one you just showed me! I will go back and look over his selections...but I still wouldn't mind having a Keith design.

    Do you roll crimp that bullet for your 10mm revolver, or taper crimp?

    I roll crimp, because my revolver was set up that way.
