I shoot a Lyman #452490, 255gr. GC SWC in my Ruger Blackhawk .45 Colt. It's a great shooter! But . . . I play hell getting the bulets to drop from that mold! The same with Lyman 358156 GC mold. It too is a great shooter. I've got to rap like crazy on the hinge pivot or the side of the handes to get the bullets to drop. I've always had that trouble with Lyman molds. My alloy has always been straight wheel weights or Lyman #2.
Now, since using aluminum molds, whether from LEE or custom molds from either Accurate or Mountain molds, just a light tap & the bullets fall right out, perfectly formed. I was thinking about having a hollow point conversion done to my Lyman .45 colt mold as I would like to have it in a hollow point. But I would like to have the bullet release issue solved prior to investing the money in the conversion.
Otherwise, I'll simply have
Any comments . . . suggestions?
If someone else had of done to me what I did to myself . . . I'd have killed him. Humility is an asset. Heh - heh.
