    I have a 358 Win built on a Mauser 98 action. The 2 cast bullets I shot were the RCBS 35-200, and the NOE 360-232. That one has a wide meplat of .275 inches. I had to seat it a little bit deeper so the edge didn't catch, but it worked and fed fine....

    Ok I looked again, yours is showing 5% antimony which is way high. Pewter has about that, but when adding 16lbs pure, no way should it be 5%!

    fascinating, mine shows 10.5??!!! I can't quite tell, what does the bottom composition show on your chart?? Mine shows 5.44% tin, 0.35% antimony, 0% arsenic, .09% copper, 0% silver, and 94.1% lead for a hardness of 10.5!

    I ran the numbers on the spreadsheet and according to what I was able to ascertain 16 pure to 1 pewter gave me 10.5 bhn. Not sure the 15.6 is correct!

    I am working with a CVA Wolf muzzleloader, 1:28 twist, 50 Caliber. Planning on using the Lee 452-300 in sabots, in the 1600-1800 fps range

    The meplat on that bullet is not that big, but with my alloy it appeared to get decent expansion

    This year I used lee 35-200, a copy of the rcbs. Mine weighed about 202 grains gas checked. I used them to shoot 2 deer this year at 1900 fps (358 winchester) I know a lot say 50/50 is the ultimate, but I used coww with enough pewter added to make a...

    So you all would use pure, even at 1600-1800 fps? Wouldn't that flatten too much?

    I have always worked with coww or a mixture of coww/pure. I am getting into muzzleloaders, and was encouraged to use a 1:16 alloy. 2 questions, any real problem using pewter instead of tin at the same 1:16 ratio? 2nd question, at what velocity does...
