Question for Bullet Casters

1856 Views 12 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  DBChaffin
Now that I'm starting to feel comfortable reloading, I'm seriously looking at casting. I've noticed that LSWC (Lead Semi Wad Cutter) seems to be the preferred bullet (or boolit) to cast for 45 ACP instead of LRN (Lead Round Nose). Why is that?

Is that true for 9, 40, 38, and 357?

Thanks in advance for the replies.

my 1911 hates! HATES! wad cutters. SWC it feeds fine, like neck said it was designed to shoot ball ammo
well its like you said neck.. 1911 was designed to feed ball so there is really no point in getting all worked up about it.. That would be like your dodge trying to beat a ford lol it just wasnt ment to do it!
