Ok, did a video on this bullet.  I love it in the levergun for sure.  I hope to be able to edit some more video footage and kick out the gel test video.

if you can get a few more people to express interest on this thread, I can always make it official and create a group buy post.

yeah, it appears that the specs are all over the place when it comes to bullet diameter/bore diameter.  It would be nice to get a bullet drawn up that will work for this.

I have lots of powders available.  Probably just pick the ones that seem like they would be best.  Unique, red dot, etc...

I have Quickload...
If you tell me what powders that you have an excess of, & might want to consider using I will look and see.
I also believe that Lyman Cast Bullets has a 200 grain round nose set of load data... for the 38 Special.
That can also be tweaked with quickload for the Snubbie Heavyweight seating depth... at the crimp grove.
Finally I also subscribe to Load Data so that website set of Wolfe Publishing Editors loads can possibly be accessed.
I Can PM you or you can me if you so choose...

So what tickles your fancy...

fyi, these bullet molds have been run... I just picked up mine the other day.  Anybody have some load data for these guys?  I'm thinking casting with soft lead/tin for some expansion at the lower velocities.  I have a gel block I can shoot them into for testing, but trying to figure out some loads.

I got one of the kak barrels
duceolsen - You're right, the molds in stock are all GC. You can post in the "What you would like to see ran" to request a run of the PB. You'll need a total of five users to get the run completed.

cornmastah - where did you find a barrel? All the barrels I find don't have the proper twist.

Al is still working on getting the new lathe up and running.  Once that is up and running, bushings and push through rods will catch up.  There have been some frustrating issues with the new equipment.

Al has gotten another machine installed and is getting it geared up to run those types of things.  Hopefully that should help to get caught up on those.
I believe that if we can get at least 5 individuals to reply that we can get some push rods scheduled.,2980.0.html

Quick tip on how to adjust the sprue plate on a mold:

Yeah, once the mold gets up to temp and you don't let it cool too long.
So you can cut the sprues on a 4 cavity mold by hand? I'm impressed. I can do a 3 cav, but not a 5. Guess I'll see if I can do a 4.

I've found that the tapping with a mallet works well, but once you get a mold hot, you can use a gloved hand to open the mold too.  I prefer the tap.

I've talked to Al and he has just run some 25 cal molds and is going to be running some of the 22 cals soon (I bought my first pcp airguns recently so I'm dying to try out some of my own pellets/slugs).

The guys on the Forums are screaming for moulds for .22, .25 and .30 cal pellets and slugs....  ::)

Probably should ask the questions about this bullet in the discussion thread (link in the original post) but a quick short answer to your question is "no, probably not."  30 twist is hair too slow of a twist rate to stabilize the longer bullets.  According to the berger stability calculator, if you got it up to about 1000fps in a 30 twist barrel, it would be marginally stable (maybe stable maybe not).  The marlin with a 16 twist should have no issues stabilizing it.

Question, would this stabilize from a Rossi M92 with 1 in 30 twist at 38 Special velocities?
