Re: 325 gr Design for Ballard Remlin

Mtngn, I had a friend from another sight run some quickload numbers for the 325 mold you made me. Below you will find the data, which I’ll be working from in the near future. H4198 was the best suggested powder: Cartridge : .444 Marlin Bullet : .430", 325 gr Custom (0.902") Useable Case Ca...

Re: 325 gr Design for Ballard Remlin

I had an opportunity to sight in with a couple introductory tests to see if this Marlin has promise and to verify a new front sight will be necessary with the Skinner peep. All (5) 325 MM boolits made a nice round 1.5” group at 50 yards. The load was a wimpy 40grs of H4895, but it looks very promisi...

Re: 325 gr Design for Ballard Remlin

mntgn,

The boolits feed like butter...looking forward to finishing them up and working out a load. I’ll post my results when I get them...thanks for the help and support.

Re: 325 gr Design for Ballard Remlin

Will do.

I had a chance to cast about 50 boolits...the mold works well, and seems to like it hot. I like the lip on the heel for the gascheck...it looks like it will become my bellweather for a good cast.

Do you have a reccomended casting temp?

Re: 325 gr Design for Ballard Remlin

Mtngn,

All I can say is wow...the mold arrived today and I’m hoping to warm up some wheelweights tonight and drop a few.

That is easily the fastest service I’ve been blessed to experience. Looking forward to giving you an on game performance review before too long.

Great Service!

Re: 325 gr Design for Ballard Remlin

Mntngn, I placed my order for a 300 Fryxell Ballard and paid with Paypal, however there was not a point in the process where I could specify to make it 325 gr instead of 300 gr. The order is from Christopher L. from Livermore, CA. If you need me to verify anything, just let me know. Best Regards, Ch...

Re: 325 gr Design for Ballard Remlin

Thanks for your feedback. So I want to order, but I’m concerned that left on my own, I’ll veer off the proven design (ballard style) accidentally. Are there other pertinent proven design details I’ll need to order, or can I just use the details provided on the proven designs (and your clarifications...

Re: 325 gr Design for Ballard Remlin

Mtngn, Thanks for verifying. I don’t consider myself knowledgable enough to really design my own, but I have enough experience to know what I believe I want. Being able to converse with someone like yourself is very helpful. I read the Fryxell article about 20 times before I posted my question yeste...

325 gr Design for Ballard Remlin

I have an interesting .444 Marlin that is a ballard rifled model. I’d like a 325 gr design...how much would the design vary from the Microgroove proven design?
