    Gould HP

    Is the nose of the Gould HP wide enough to take a conical HP pin? Would the conical allow it to open at a lower velocity or with a softer bhn more than a straight pin?

    My Lyman 457122 is pour from 30/1, pb/sn and loaded over blackpowder. Expansion has never been a problem.

    I prefer to use cartridges born before I was.

    I cast my Gould HP's out of 95/2.5/2.5 alloy and they expand well with the stock pin.

    The meplat will take a #1 drill, 0.228 and still have a little bit of flat before the ogive starts.

    I cast my HP's out of soft lead as pure as I can get. Once it is properly powder coated and cured the alloy is running on the polymer jacket as fast as I wish to push it.

    I agree expansion is NOT a issue with pin that comes with the mold. It’s all about the alloy.

    Bullet designed for under 1400 FPS.
