.451 bullet mould. Volunteer PH with Henry rifling
#1
Hello, I am looking for a bullet mould that casts a 450 grain projectile in .450 caliber direct from the mould and does not need sizing. I have a Lee mini bullet mould which is the correct diameter, cast super mini bullets at .450, that fit perfectly, but it is too light. Any recommendations much appreciated. Kind regards Chris, Surrey Branch MLAGB.

Thank you both. I have just purchased a mold from Buffallo Arms of the USA. It is one of the Jim's Mold range and is apparently a heavy .450 projectile  from the mold. It is a canellured bullet, flat base and long. It was expensive, lets see whether it works. Kind regards

Chris there does not seem to be a lot of activity on this site. I am still working on my load, I will try an alloyed bullet, same mould but am waiting on getting a decent telescope as my current old one is not really up to allowing me to make sight corrections. My 451114 weighs in at about 475 grains, I have another heavier bullet that came with my rifle and that one comes in at over 500 grains and would be for longer range. I do lighly size mine, really all the die does is remove the extra lube. Index your bullet with the cast mark on the foresight, one less variable.

cheers

Hi Gordon, I have begun to cast my new .450 bullets by Jim's Molds USA. It is a fine piece of engineering and cast what looks to be a very nice bullet. It take quite some time to get it up to temperature and the bullets are a little wrinkled. I will use them at the end of January at Bisley. 

Kind regards

Chris
