Re: any body shoot cast bullets

most of my cast bullet stuff is out of hand guns, but do use them in my 38-55. The 38-55 is border line in leading, but is so fun to shoot!!! In my 44's I have run into leading at 1650 fps out of my T/C's. I do shoot one load that is good for 1750 fps, and it starts to show lead build up after about a dozen shots. On the otherhand I fire form 30 Herrett cases with cast lead bullets at close to 1900fps without too much of a problem (I can get about fifty shots before it gets real bad.), so I also think maybe the bullet diameter has a lot to do with this problem. Yet I can shoot anyone of the 45LC's all day long without any lead build up to speak of.

The website ought to create a cast bullet forum
