Long distance shooters of large caliber guns like
45/70 need bullets that meet the demands of such shooting.
Most of the shooting is done with bullets in the 405 grain to 530 grain
range depending on the rate of twist of the rifle.
45/70’s have run a twist rate of 1 in 22 to 1 in18 that will stabilize
Various designs have been developed for
such shooting and those that cast their own do so with a single cavity
mold for minimum weight variance of those large bullets.
In examining the casting of our own
bullets, I realized that the most weight variation between bullets was
in the biggest heaviest weights. While for most generalized shooting the
weight variance of several grains was not an issue.
In talking to those that were doing long distance shooting I found that
many were weighing each bullet and segregating the bullets into groups
based on their weight variance.
I felt that I could minimize the weight variance by going to a one mold
single cavity casting of each different heavy bullet.
The process takes longer but insures a much higher degree of consistency
and minimal weight variation.
In addition I can add more bullet designs into the
line up as I only have to purchase one block instead of a set of blocks
which is of course much more costly.
Those that want to take advantage of the single mold casting option just
need to note that request in the special instructions area.
There will be a small added fee for this option due to the time required
to cast a volume of bullets for an order.
Other calibers that can take advantage of this option will be taken
under consideration so please e-mail me your requests.
I can also offer this option for those that wish to purchase their own
custom design molds.
Ballisti-Cast and Accurate Molds and probably some others offer molds
that will work with our casting machines so this will expand custom
bullet options for our customers.
Please consult with me first before ordering any such custom molds to be
sure of compatibility.
