I use both for 45 Colt and 454 Casull. Never been able to tell any difference.
Just be sure to get the Hi-Tek coating, it's well worth it.
A good bullet for full power loads in both calibers is the Cast Performance 300gr LFNGC
45/300gr. LFNGC .452 dia 100 Count - Grizzly Cartridge - Cast Performance
Cast Performance Bullets 45 Cal (452 Diameter) 300 Grain Lead Long
Hi-Tek is to lead bullets as butter is to bread.Thanks JBnTx for the MO BULLET coating advice, I was wondering about that too.
Eh, I've tried 'em & there OK.Traditionally lubed cast bullets will soon be a thing of the past. Once you try Hi-Tek, I guarantee you'll never buy another uncoated cast bullet.
Try one of the 100 round sample packs from Missouri Bullet. You'll be sold on Hi-Tek.
Dunno where this came from but decidedly not true. There are over 38,000 members on Castboolits.com forum, with 400-500 members looking/using the forum per day, with 5-10 new members added daily, and that's just one place for casters to share, and many casters don't frequent forums. That's a lot for a "dying hobby". Perhaps long after I'm gone, the tree huggers will have convinced politicians that all lead products are evil, but not for a loooong time.Traditionally lubed cast bullets will soon be a thing of the past.
I load for my Freedom Arms 454 Casull and I only use Penn Bullets Specialty bullets. The alloy allows for high pressures and no leading. Try their .45 Caliber 255 Grain Semi Wad-Cutter Plain Base .45 Caliber Bullets Available From Penn Bullets I guarantee you wont be disappointed. The Freedom Arms 454 is as strong as it gets so my 454 load is 29 grains of W 296 with a CCI 400 primer and Penn Bullet's 340 grain TCBB-SSK Specialty bullet DON'T LOAD THIS FOR YOUR GUN WITHOUT CREEPING UP TO IT, like I say, Freedom Arms makes a monster of a strong gun. I know Ruger makes strong ones but dont start with that load. You'll love those bullets though, accurate and clean as can be. I get zero leading even with the hot loads, not even splatter on the frame.
