Notice how I asked a stupid question about that pretty brass mold hoping it would automatically enter me for those incredible-looking boolits !! (lol)

Good looking bullets you got there.
I like the hollowpoint .45s!

Perhaps the production difficulties hinted at earlier means it's on hiatus for a while. OK.

Too bad. Never got around to chrono-ing my staple gun. BC of 3/8 and 1/2" staples seems to be equally dismal.

I just like looking @ the boolits and reading about casting them. Cool stuff! If the drawings inspire more interest that's cool with me. If my boolits were a bit better and the caster was a bit more experienced I'd be shipping boolits.

OK, back on line here. Have had some serious family health problems which put a strain on the family business. Been working long hours. So, I know I owe some people some boolits and I just need to kow who they are. I have quite a few cast already, so all I need to do is ship. I have been away sooo long and I do apologize. Disco, if u can update me as to whats going on with this I would sure appreciate it. Thanks!!! (and it is good to finally be back hangin' with y'all!!!)

Thanks! Things are getting better, but we aren't out of the woods yet! Lung cancer finally caught up to my uncle after all those years he smoked. He quit 15 years ago and was recently diagnosed. He is now getting chemo AND radiation. All we can do is hope for the best.

I just signed up to get a 4 cavity mold like the one Yotehunter has. Go here if you're really interested.

http://www.castboolits.gunloads.com/...ad.php?t=97566

Looks like it will cost this much;

Quote:
.45 - 4 cavity Hollowpoint Cramer in .452 - $120 + $16 extra pins + $20 freight = $156.00

Makes me want to consider cast bullets. Can't be much different than the plated ones I use right now.
