    .457 airgun slugs, HP

    Hi Folks, I've recently re-entered the shooting gallery with an Airforce Texan SS .457 big bore airgun. I've been hording and melting WW's and other lead for casting my boolits. I will need a mould for HPs, I'm thinking 280-305 grain HPs. Can anyone offer me access to, or where to find, moulds for these? Being a newbee, I'm open to input and assistance. Thanks in advance for your kind response. Keep 'em smiling... Tom

    The NOE 460-350 HP runs 332 grs with 98% pure lead 2% tin and shoots very very well in my gun
    also the RCBS 45-300 solid it runs approx 315 grns
    Keep in mind at approx. 950 FPS you will get very little expansion..

    This 315 HP Plain Base is in stock right now .. shows 287 Gr as a hollow point.. If he offers the cup point pins for this as well you would probably be looking at close the 305 Grns
