Wrong. Forget about B.C.I have a 444 marlin (new with Ballard riflings) and am looking for a high B.C. as possible
The LFN design is a term used by Veral Smith at LBT.That is probably going to be a LFN design?
That is true of cast bullets in any rifle or SS pistol. Easier said than done. More than a few expensive custom molds have been purchased for lever guns only to find that the bullet would not chamber. Something to consider very carefully. Please refer to the thread on the 444 for specific advice.In reading at Beartooth Bullets, it seems that these guns like having their noses jammed in the throat to leave land marks in the bullets
, but not pull the bullet back out of the case when extracting.
For 444 marlin velocities and pressures, I would recommend using a gas check, and yes, they need to be crimped on by sizing.Anyway, will I need a lubrisizer after casting these bullets? Do these bullets get gas checks? My experience is that gas checks are more accurate.
Ha ha ha, you want a proven bullet. There is no such thing, but the designs discussed in the 444 thread are a good starting point.I am willing to play with loading, but want to know that the molds I get are going to produce bullets that will provide tight groupings proven in the 444.
