OK - rsterne (Bob) has been pushing for us to give a small bullet a try with a modified RG pin.
Our original RG testing indicated that anything smaller than .20"Dia could be problematic.
Will give this one a try and see what it will do

So RG moulds will be available for this group buy.
RG2 $103.00
RG4 $133.00

Calculated with the gas check off
The gas checked bullet should be more stable

With out Gas Check
CG 48.99%
CP 48.99%

With Gas Check
CG 47.59%
CP 47.90%

The best explanation I can offer to visualize CG vs. CP is if you were to balance the bullet on the edge of a knife blade. The actual bullet's balance point would be the CG. Now we cut out a silhouette of the bullet from stiff paper stock and balance it on the knife, that would be CP. So it is a 3D to a 2D relationship.


This drawing is exgagirated for the example

 
From Long Range Shooting: External Ballistics - Bullet Shape, here is the short of it.

"Therefore, because of the bullet shape, the projectile will always fly at an angle, called angle of attack, relative to the trajectory. ... Since the point of pressure is positioned in front of the center of mass, the air flow will force the bullet to rotate backward, pivoting on its center of mass."

Thanks RanchDog for your input!

Casting and Reloading / TL310-225-RN-CE3 TACO Bullet for the 300 Blk
« on: November 27, 2018, 05:18:19 PM »
TL310-225-RN-CE3 TACO Bullet for the 300 Blk
The Taco bullet was designed by Full Lead Taco to be used as an "easy to cast, coat,
load, and shoot bullet for the 300 blk. The tumble lube version and the nose configuration
were proposed by GearNasher. The tumble Lube grooves do make it a little harder to cast
in comparison to the “Slick sided” version. But should be a small trade off if they help as
proposed – will see.



Used a 5 cavity mould, washed in hot soapy water and pre-heated it.
Pot temperature was 700F. Lightly smocked it with a propane lighter and ran it up to
frosty bullets, about 485F. Backed it down to just a mat grey finish, 390F to 420F and
cast with it. Did have to work with it a little to get the grooves to fill out.



Bullets dropped from mould at .3106”, base band did run .0003” to .0004” bigger on
my mould with our wheel weight alloy. Powder coated with (2) coats of Harbor Fright
Red (400F for 20min) .3128” and sized to .3102 with our bushing push through size
die .310. Did use some Hornady Unique Case Lube to lube them with. Works wonders!



Now to get back in to the reloading room and get them loaded.
Looking forward to doing a side by side with the HTC310-225-RN-CE4
Will post as we go.

Casting and Reloading / HTC359-129-TC-CD4 in the Ruger 9mm PC Carbine.

HTC359-129-TC-CD4 in the Ruger 9mm PC Carbine.
Made some time over the holiday and cast with the new HTC359-129-TC-CD4.



Used a 5 cavity mould, washed in hot soapy water and pre-heated it.
Pot temperature was 700F. Lightly smocked it with a propane lighter and
ran it up to frosty bullets, about 470F. Backed it down to just a mat grey finish,
390F to 420F and cast with it.



Like most all our HTC moulds, bullets feel from it with ease.
Bullets dropped from mould at .3596” with our wheel weight alloy.
Powder coated with (2) coats of Harbor Fright Red (400F for 20min) .3616”
and sized to .3583 with our bushing push through size die .358”.   
Was a little surprised that it would size down in one pass. Did use some
Hornady Unique Case Lube to lube them with. Works wonders!



Now to get back in to the reloading room and get them loaded.
Had the PC Carbine for 3 or 4 months and haven't had it out yet.
Will post as we go.

The 125Gr. target weight would not work and keep everything where it had to be.
