Cast not accurate? Pshaw!

Groups shot at 10 yards, (not real far, I know, but it has been a while, *hangs head in shame*, and I wanted to make sure to HIT the target!), standing, two hand hold, very light breeze. Beautful day. The brass is bumping merrily along in the tumbler behind me.

Single action only, Smith 10-8

Double action only, Smith 10-8

DA/SA, CZ P-01

I know there are a lot of people here who can outshoot me, that's OK, I just like to show that home cast lead can be as accurate as factory ammo or regular jacketed bullet reloads, at least for me.

Not news to me, always considered lead bullets more accurate than jacketed for most target velocity loads.
Nice shootin'! Those old M10's are great shooters.

I cast bullets for my revolver target ammo because I want "X-Ring" accuracy rather than just "10-Ring" accuracy.

those that say lead isn't accurate, have never shot good lead.

I cast my own.

Most of my recipes are MORE accurate that factory.

This is tested in a vise. (no human error)
