Have to thank you DAN for the exellent work you did on my mold!
Casts fine boolits and as specified!
Only regret is that i didnt order a two-holer...

Boolit is a design suited for MY Marlin 1895g 45-70 and intended as a maximum meplate huntingboolit for moose, hawgs, deer and perhaps brown bears.
Mold throws boolits at a smidge more than .460(perfect) and weigh in at 417grains with lube and gascheck.
Loaded cartridges feed sooo smooth 8-)

Thank you very much for the picture.

Just hope your gun likes the bullet. It should be excellent for hunting.

Just back from the range...

Shot a 6-shot load-ladder (each shot 0.5grains diff) offhand at 60 metres using open sights :o .

Thanks again!

Have to admit that it took quite some time measuring the chamber,bore and all the various dummies i made to ensure proper fit and cyclingreliability just to fill out the "designpage" properly.
But when all the measurements are done it really means nothing if the machinist isn`t up to the task.
Mountainmolds however seems to really do an exellent job!

I most certainly will order more molds from you in the near future.../danny

Danny K.,

That is a fine looking bullet for the 1895G. That should put the lights out on about anything north of the dark continent with authority. You should be able to shoot that one comfortably (for the gun that is) 1800+ FPS. Those Guide Guns pack a punch for such a small package, and are more accurate than they look.

Mountain Molds does offer a great service to a cast bullet shooter.

I pulled out one of the 410 grainers for my 1895G that Dan made the mold for back around 2005. A little longer front band and a little less meplat, but similar :)

Thanks for the hunting pic.

I've never shot a boar but it sounds like fun.

Do you make sausage with the meat ? Or is it just like domesticated pork ?
