Bullet Bands

I have a 200 grain .360 mold you made that works great! It has a .35 long nose with 80% meplat and 3 bands below the crimp plus the gas check. I also have a 235 grain .377 mold you made that also works great! The .377 has a .375 long nose with 80% meplat and 2 bands below the crimp plus the gas chec...

Re: 200 gr. 38/357--Omnibus or Camel?

Correction on the group size. I have shot many groups less than 2 MOA with both bullets. They will consistantly shoot less than 4 moa with a scope under perfect conditions if I do my part.

Re: 200 gr. 38/357--Omnibus or Camel?

Beowolf, My 200 and 180 grain bullets are .360 Dia. with 80% meplats and .100" long front bands. The 180 grainer has a .28" long nose and the 200 grainer a .34" long nose. They both have almost identical seating depths in the case. They both will shoot less than 2 moa at 100 yards wit...

Re: 200 gr. 38/357--Omnibus or Camel?

Dan built a similar mold for me a couple of years ago. 200 gr. 80% meplat and gas check. It shot great in my Blackhawk 357 to 100 yards, but at longer ranges groups went to hell and the bullets started keyholing. Max loads with H110 and higher velocity gave good groups at 125 to 150 yards, but start...

Re: Mountain Mold 200 grain cast bullet at work

I was just looking at the bull you shot with your 357! That is incredible! I agree with you on 35 caliber. I don't know if it is luck of the draw, or if 35 calibers work great with cast. I have had incredible luck with the accuracy of my 357 Rossi 92, Marlin 336 in 35 Remington, and my old 35 Whelan...

Mountain Mold 200 grain cast bullet at work

I drew a cow elk permit this year and was lucky enough to find one where I could retrieve it with my backhoe. She was 190 yards from my 336 Marlin Micro Groove in 35 Remington. I do not recommend attempting the velocity of this load in 35 Remington! It has proved safe in my rifle only! The 200 grain...

30 Caliber Loverin

Hi Dan,

I was just looking at the 180 grain Loverin bullet you were testing in your range reports and was thinking of ordering a similar one for a 700 Rem in 30-06. Do you remember the nose length, front band length and meplat % of that bullet?

38-55 Rebore

I have wanted a 38-55 lever gun for years, but have never purchased one because of the goofy bore, neck, and throat sizes. I have been thinking about pulling the barrel on a Marlin 336 and having it rebored to .375 and purchasing a reamer or throater from Dave Manson. If this works out the reamer wo...

Loverin

I have read your range reports several times over the years and the same question comes up. What are Loverins?

Great range reports! Thanks!
