    Default .458 Teaser Update More Pics

    Just to let you guys know who follow us and use our bullets we have started the process to get our new .458 Molds on order. For our first test run we are making a 405 grain round nose flat point with no lube grooves for our coated bullet process. We put the order in today for a custom mold to be cut. I will keep you guys posted on the process.

    Just to give you guys an update. After talking with a few customers we are going to go with a 300 grain bullet. Mold designs were approved today. This should be a good cross over bullet for 45/70 and 458 Socom. Will update again when I get the first trial run mold in my hand. Probly 3-4 weeks before I get the mold.

    Well the first prototype mold came in. Hand casted a few hundred and coated them up. Off to some select customers for a trial run. The coating did not come out as smooth as I would have liked but it is a small batch compared to my normal run so I have to live with it for testing purposes.

    We shelved it for a while. The first mold we cut was terrible.

    Then we went onto 147 grn 9mm subsonics.

    Now it looks like we are comming back around to having another mold cut first of the year.
