Default New Bullets

Got my new mold today. A Lee Precision 90577 that cast a .459" 500 grain Spire point with a BC of .443. I cast a few pounds of them just now with my BHN 19 alloy. They are going to be used in my Pedersoli 1874 Sharps replica. First test will be in the spring when I get back from Florida and I'll shoot two 5 shot groups each with powder coated and traditionally lubed bullets to see which are more accurate.

let us know how it works out,
I've found that the 530 grain version, is marginally more accurate in my friends ruger 458 LOTT,
and that slow powders like 5020 or ratumbo, work well

HC If you notice my bullets have a spire point rather than a RN profile. I don't know what the BC is for those bullets but mine have a .443 BC. A far cry from the 405 gr FN bullets that have a BC of .225
i chose this mold so I can shoot longer ranges. 500 to 600 + yards.
