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 yesterday, and I believe that want to order a 325 gr proven design for a couple reasons. Let me know if you think I’m off base in my thoughts.
The first reason is that I’ll have a mold that would give me .432+ boolits with wheel weights, which is mostly what I have. I really want 1 main bullet cast for my .444 that will cover everything I would conceivably hunt in North America. I believe in the heavy hardcast boolits, but I also feel that all I’ll gain by going larger than a 325 gr boolit is more recoil than I really need. I expect that I’ll be hunting deer, pig and elk, and my average hunting distance would realistically be 100 yards...likey less. What do you think?
The second reason is that I could try the same boolit in some of my .44 SBH for a heavy alternative. I’m primarily a bowhunter, and someday I expect to do some hunting in AK, and I’d expect that a hardcast 325 gr would well in that application where I don’t want to carry a shotgun or rifle, but I want potent power if needed. I expect that I would just seat long...maybe in the first lube groove. Again, what are your thoughts?
