As I do all of my own bullet casting, I generally do not have need of a commercial bullet caster. Having said that, I happened to be in Cody Wyoming last week on business and ran into Dawn Ehrenford, whom as it turns out, is married to Frank Ehrenford. The two of them own and operate Mt. Baldy Bullet Company and were gracious enough to invite myself and my colleague (truth be told, we invited ourselves) to tour their facility and talk cast bullets for an hour or two. Always eager to learn more about anything that has anything to do with guns, we were super stoked to have the opportunity to chat with these folks! My colleague and I both found the Ehrenford’s to be very down to earth, honest and honorable gun folk! Their shop was nothing at all like I had expected, but was impressive in the extreme, as 90% or more of their bullets are cast by hand on a custom order basis. You tell them what you want, what size, weight etc. and they make it…. Simple as that. Frank does the majority of the casting, and Dawn handles the orders, shipping and bullet lube/sizing. A truly first rate operation that turns out a quality product at a reasonable price, and with superb customer service! The best part is that they cast them at a hardness that is suitable for hunting, and that does not lead your bore, What more could you want?!
After talking guns and cast bullets for some time with the Ehrenford’s and a couple of their employee’s I asked Dawn it there would be any way that I could kind of browse around and take a few “samples”…… yup, no problem, help yourself was the answer. Well I ended up with 20 some odd different bullets in a wide range of calibers and weights to add to my bullet collection (see attached photo, and the one on the upper left is about the size of my thumb!!!), and what do suppose Dawn had to say when I asked how much I owed her for the bullets? “ha! Don’t worry about it, just enjoy them!” My kind of folks, then Ehrenford’s!
Dawn told me that they do a fair amount of business here in AK, and I imagine that I will add to that by placing an order for some 303 Brit bullets shortly (so I can see how they shoot before I buy my own mould!)
Their web site is www.mtbaldybullets.com and the phone number is 307-754-5255 should you chose to give them a try. I am confident that you will not be disappointed.
