Skeet, I have been buying my 40 and 45acp bullets from a business called CheyCast, in sw Cheyenne. They also have bullets for the 45 Colt. For the magnums, I buy cast bullets with gas checks from Leadhead bullets. That fellow has very good quality and I support him because he is in a wheelchair. Both can be looked up on the internet by using Google.

I have heard of Leadhead..but never bought from him.. Mostly like to use stuff I can look at first. Only thing I don't like now days is many of the commercial guys do a lot of bevel base bullets..but those magma machines cast those more consistently I guess. I do like square based bullets better. and as you say..gas checks in the mag bullets. How're things going down there?? Any shows comin up soon?? I bought a bbld action Martini 310 Cadet.. Any suggestion for a caliber to make it?? If I don't sell it

Not fired up yet, just thinking it is following my luck. Nope AJ was supposed to send me the tracking numbers but he apparently forgot to, and now he is on vacation until August according to his voicemail. I called the number on it and left a message for the other person, but no results yet.

Got a nice heavy box in the mail yesterday! Opened it up and everything looked perfecto. I will be ordering from them again at some point, as I understand that slip ups happen, and their product is good quality. They were nice about the whole thing as well, so all and all I am happy. Turns out my name was on the box sitting in the office, but for whatever reason their email server and gmail have it out for each other. Once the lady called me the box got here quick quick.

BTW..you should see that young lady!! Course I just love young(and not so young) ladies. Going Monday to a gun shop locally. They have a bunch of Benchrest stuff they want me to buy..They also have a bunch of cast sized and lubed 210 gr 41 cal bullets. If the price is right..I'm gonna buy 'em all. In all that mess they also have some primers that were sold/shipped with Hodgdon powders back in the 50's I'd say. Large rifle type. I actually have a wooden box from Hodgdon marked 1953 I think that contained primers. Their primers were made in Scandinavia I think..Hope the bullets work out well for you. I have a hundred 41 mag cases sized primed and ready to load those 255 WFNGC bullets. We'll see how they do.

Yep I am prepping cases now for a good portion of what I picked up. They look outstanding, and from the bullet I would say it is identical to the TVB bullets I bought last year. If it is then accuracy will be dead on without an issue!
