Re: 45-70 Marlin mold

I haven't had a chance to cast yet (been away).

However, I have decided this bullet will be named "Mjollnir". Hopefully it will perform like its namesake, Mjölnir!

Re: 45-70 Marlin mold

Diolch yn fawr!

Re: 45-70 Marlin mold

Hi mtngun, I was discussing the mold I ordered with an experienced caster who is helping me get set up. He raised the concern that the .458 Gator gas checks will be too small for my bore and this could cause problems with hot gas bypassing the gas check and damaging the bullet, spoiling concentricit...
