Here we have our latest addition to the grooveless bullet selection, a .45 200gr SWC. 

 

See it here:

The first report from a very good shooter is of a 3/4" ten shot group at 20 yards.

*cough* 180 no-groove in .40 *cough*

 

Are you guys hauling lead to Jake's hootenanny in Indiana next month? I should probably place an order to pick up, tide me through the winter.

I'd buy a bunch of no groove 40/180s.  Are they on the way?

Have been, for months. That's what I'm bitching about. 

 

Plus it's what I do.

Or you could buy them from Leatherhead Bullets, they already have them.

There's the problem.  I'm a shooter, but I'm certainly not competitive at it.  Let me know when you send out an email to the shooters that don't stand a chance.

Must have missed it, I got tired of all your spam and junk-filed your inbound e-mails.

180's will be running soon. The molds will be cut tonight, hopefully we'll have them running by Tuesday or Wednesday.

Do you guys make your own cherries and molds?

 

Magma casting machines?

What's the advantage of no groove?

Shorter bullet at the same weight and you don't have to worry about where the grease ring sits in relation to the case mouth if you load your shit way long.

We have custom cherries made for our no lube groove bullets.

 

We have ten Magma Mark 8's

 

What's the advantage of no groove?

 

More uniform coating is another advantage to grooveless bullet designs.   Seem to be a little more accurate so far.

Just shot a squib (new reloader) in .45 200gr Molycoated w/groove.  It cleared the barrel and actually hit the paper plate I was aiming at.  Anyone else have an experience like this?  Sure beats having to knock the bullet out if it's repeatable (not gonna try).


Wait, I smell more than donuts...

Looks like we won't have them by then.  Our molds didn't quite meet our standards so we're having another set made. 

 

Next week we should.  I'll update ASAP.

Undersized maybe?

Possibly, but they're listed as .452.

Also need to correct that the coating stated in my original post should have read "poly", not "moly".
