Souce of cast .45 Colt bullets from NEI mold?

I am looking for a cast bullet vendor who sells .45 Colt bullets from NEI mold #322B, which is a plain-based 255 grain bullet near the traditional shape for the .45 Colt, but with a crimp groove that many manufacturers like Lyman do not provide. A BHN in the 12 to 16 range sized to .452 would be perfect.

Any body know of a vendor?

(Yes, I know how to buy a mold and cast my own, so let's not fill this thread with posts about that.)

I think most comercial vendors will be using mass production machines like Magma Engineering. ect.. and not a single mold by hand. So your not going to find one I am sure.

If you look here

you will see that NEI DOES cut its molds in Magma blocks as well as Ballisti-cast blocks. So, they DO seem to support commercial casters as well as us home-brew types.

I offer a swc plain base in 12 BHN. The RNFP I offer is in 12 BHn but features a bevel base which does very well. .

As well as Robert, above, try contacting Missouri Bullet and talk with JoAnn or Brad, to see what they are using in their castings.

or 816-597-3204

I use their bullets, from 180 gr up to 255 gr.

There is another company out of Illinois that makes lead bullets also, but for the life of me, I can not remember their name. I used up all of their bullets and then started using Missouri Bullets... Someone is going to have to chime in and remind me what the name is.
