  • My new Bear stopper bullets.

    So I've had this mold for awhile but never got around to casting any bullets from it.
    And since I'm stuck at home in self quarantine why not work on a reloading project.
    The mold is the Lee .430 310 grain RF bullet.
    Cast with an alloy of lead/Tim/antimony that tested out at ~11.5 bhn.
    These are gas checked using Vulcan brand gas checks in a Lee push through sizer.
    I opted for using powder paint for my lube of choice.
    In this case Azure blue from Cadmans custom jigs.
    An excellent powder and as cheap as they come at only $7 per pound which does thousands of bullets.
    Worked great for dry tumble coating.
    Passed the smash test with flying colors after curing no flaking paint here!
    I'm going to be working up some loads for these using 2400 powder in my super Blackhawk .44 mag.
    Can't wait for some range time in a couple of days.
    The pics are as cast,sized and gas checked, and checked sized painted and cured plus the smash test bullet.
    I'm thinking these will be good loads for stopping bears should the need arises while I'm out and about in our great outdoors!

        Very nice!
        I actually thought about getting some zombie green powder paint.
        But Cadmans paint is so cheap and I have several pounds of it. The zombie green with shipping and everything was just to expensive for a just because project.
