And some blue ones Ellis gave me to try.
It is good!I’m not experienced enough in rifles to be able to comment on the copper fouling. But I do like the powder , especially because it meters like water.
Lol.....I believe they'll probably push on me hard. Can't be any worse than firing that 458 of yours in a sitting position lol827gr of Butt Stomping Whoop A$$....................
I will hold your beer and you shoot it............
I'm tinkering with other methods right now,but for the most part it is my go to.I'm sure I've asked this before, but do you powdercoat all your cast bullets? If so, why? One of these years, I hope to start casting handgun boolits.
And those look nice!
I’ll be casting some of that very 358 with gas checks for some 357mag ammo very soon lolI've been "under the weather" the past few days, so I got on the bench for a while.
Here's 300 rounds of .38 Special, 158 gr. LSWC (100 in brass cases, 200 in nickle cases).

For my next project, I've got these pretty .44 Special cases ready to go . . .

My only question is, Should I load 240 grain LSWC? or maybe some blue shot cup?

Or maybe order some .44 cal Lead Round Ball, since I found this in my OLD Speer manual??

Using a Lyman lube sizer and keeping the lead uncoated. Seems proper for the wheel gun.What are you calling "old school"? Pan lubing or tumble lubing?
I thought you were a big powder coater. I got 2 spare toaster ovens, and a local Harbor Freight. I thought I'd try my hand at powder coating.
105,yes lots easier than 158gn lolIs that the 140 or 105 Lee? Your powder coating looks great...nice and smooth and even. Those little 105 are easy shootin' and go easy on the lead supply
I got a few now. I’m liking hp38 a lot for these.Got a good load for Bobcat's GP100 using 105's - definitely cheaper than the 160's!
What powder is requiring you to do that?LOL, so far I've got 12 rounds 300 BO loaded. Its slow going on the hand weighing every round. Loaded 30 the other day.
There are long and short charge dues offered by Lee. I’ll go look and see if i can dig up a link.I don't think it is the powder CFE-Blk just haven't figured out how to get it set up for the 300BO. Casing doesn't go far enough up to activate the Lee powder dispenser. Had it working with the 223 awhile back.
