I've just started casting bullets again after moving last year. I started with 45/70 bullets and then went on to pistol bullets. Sadly I have yet to buy my first pistol mold, I have several that I borrow to cast with though. The friend that lets me have free run of his mold blocks has always been a 41 shooter but does have some 357 stuff and one 44 mold. The 44 is Lyman's 215gr SWC GC, with the alloy I've been using they weight 218 lubed and checked. They shoot good and when cast hard you can crank the velocity way up there with Accurate No9 according to their data, which is the only book I have that lists this bullet. The dilemma is that other than cans and rocks, I can't think of a really good use for this bullet. Has anyone used this weight for hunting? I would think they would be okay for smaller big game, after all they are still heavier than the old standby 41 bullet. I just haven't found anyone else who uses this bullet. Your thoughts?
