Mold arrived safe, thanks.

Do the Gator .458 GC (outer diameter .468) crimp down to a more sensible size? If not, why isn't it a problem trying to stuff something so much larger than bore diameter down the barrel?

Thanks again,

Ben

The oversize gas check will swage down in the sizing die when you size the bullet. That's how a crimp-on gas check is intended to work.

Glad the mold made it to Wales. :)

Diolch yn fawr!

I'll let you know how I get on. I'm not there on the equipment front yet and the gas checks are on order at present.

I'm guessing it wouldn't be a good idea to try the bullets plus gas checks unsized, then!

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!

Well, it should definitely hammer your shoulder, anyway. :lol:

Let's hope your gun approves.

Meet Mjölnir:





I've no previous experience to compare to but the mold seemed to perform well, so long as I kept my speed/rhythm up.

The bullets cast at an average 460gr and .462 diameter:



I can't wait to see how they shoot. I just need to sort out my Lubrisizer and make up some test loads.

Many thanks for being part of my intro to casting!

Thanks for the awesome photos. Let's hope they shoot as good as they look. :)
