Re: sprue plate

I personally like the trough and am considering adding one to an old mold from you that does not have one. For me the trough seemed make casting good bullets significantly easier.

length of nose measurment

I have an existing bullet that I am taking measurements from for a mold. When i am measuring the nose length of bullet is the length to the top or bottom of the crimp grove? Thanks again for your help. I have two molds from you already and could not be happier.

Re: 35 whelen long throat

I have been playing around with the design program and I am almost ready to order a mold, but I am having trouble deciding between a 2 cavity aluminum or brass mold. The bullets is gong to weigh 270 grains which is max length for your standard molds according to the design program. I am using wheelw...

Re: 35 whelen long throat

One more questions. Decided on a Loverin design over the lyman 358009. How long of nose should a Loverin have. I am going to do a 280 grain bullet at .360 diameter with a .1 front band. I was thinking of a .3 nose length. Does this sound about right? Thanks once again for your time and patience. Scott

Re: 35 whelen long throat

Few more questions and then hopefully i will leave you alone. In my mind a Loverin design would be a straight body with smaller grooves that then ends in a small length nose. The diameter should be grove diameter plus .001 or .002inches. Is this a correct thought? Max meplat with a bolt gun is deter...

Re: 35 whelen long throat

The bear was a big black bear that my hunting partner shot with a lite weight mechanical broadhead arrow, he now shoots heavy single bevel broad heads upon my request. The shot was a steep angle as we were standing on top of a small cliff. The shot was 35 yards. Bear ran off and left a good blood tr...

Re: 35 whelen long throat

I am interested in the #2 290 grain mold that is in stock. What measurements would make or not make this mold work for my rifle? How big is the meplat, and why over 2000 views and nobody has bought it? I am a hunter and not a target shooter. I hunt in a basin in NW Montana that has the largest grizz...

35 whelen long throat

I really want to shoot cast bullets out of my 35 whelen but i am questioning if cast bullets would shoot well out of my rifle. Just measured throat by chambering a round with a 250 grain jacketed bullet backwards. It seems that my whelen has a .375inch long throat. Never seen such a long throat, so ...

I was thinking of a 255 grain bullet. Front band diameter of .36 with a length of .18. Nose length of .375. Meplat 73 percent. Th...

% Arsenic needed for heat treating

Just bought a mold from Mountain Molds and it looks wonderful. I am now on the search for a casting alloy. Seems that my best option is trying to match WW through combinations of root metals alloys and lead shot. My big question is what percentage of lead shot would it take to enrich my alloy with a...
