Suck it up, Buttercup.. we gotta cast!!

'Made it out the shed today, and all of the stuff still works! It's been about a year since I've dropped a bullet out there. I don't know if I can do it often, but it sure felt good to get out there and make some bullets. It takes me away and I get all engrossed in making each pour better than the last and it really does provide a wonderful distraction, and a nice pan of bullets to load!





It's the MiHec .44 Terminator mold, and I was using two round HP pins and two Penta pins.

Got em lubed and checked and ready to go. I would powdercoat, but it's pretty rainy here this week and my lubesizer is right in front of the TV where I can lube in the dry and watch football at the same time.

Nice work. I am curious, do you know of anyone who has done any gel testing with the penta hollow points? Of course, the lead mix (i.e. ACWW vs 1/16 tin/lead, etc.) would make a significant variable in performance. But, just curious about how they might compare to jacketed HPs.

Muzzleblast. Check out loads of bacon on youtube, he does gel test with the penta bullets.
