Brown Rectangle Wood Font Line


I cast 100 of these 50cal 580gr HP bullets. They are cast with pure lead so they should expand nicely at 900+fps.
I know 100 doesn't sound like a lot, but I will not be shooting these often.



Photograph Automotive tire White Black Font


The polygon hollow points are HUGE. And DEEP.




Cylinder Font Composite material Rectangle Carmine


Bottle Drinkware Glass bottle Beer bottle Alcoholic beverage


I powder coated 50 each in red and blue. The trick was to tap out the excess powder from the HPs.
The red didn't coat as well as I wanted, but shootable.



Liquid Light Blue Product Azure


IMO, they came out looking pretty good. Now to determine a load for them..............

Look great to me. Wish mine would coat that well first time round.

Yes. Reduced loads. :(

That day I shot it at the Brooklyn range (second M&G I think) you could literally see those impact the berm with the pop open action loads. I bet the “reduced” loads are even better at being seen and heard after the shot and recoil reaction 😂
