Freedom Arms bullets

Where can one buy Freedom Arms .454 Casull bullets to reload? From what I've read they seem to be a really good bullet for the Casull.

I wouldn't know.

You really cannot beat Cast Performance bullets for the 454 Casull. They are simply the best I have ever used. They have weights from 250 to 395 grains and just about every bullet shape that exists for this type of bullet. They are all gas checked as well so you don't lead your barrel.

No, I do not work for Cast Performance...

Yes, in fact I do have a 454... in more ways than one.

A gas check is a copper cup or disc attached to the bottom of a lead bullet so the flame from the powder ignition doesn't cut the lead to make a good seal. It also prevents leading of the barrel.

Also, If you like copper jacketed bullets, you cannot beat Hornady XTP's for 454 Casull.
