Received in a NOE brand 44 cal Keith style 280gr SWC, PB mold. Cast up a Lee 10 lb pot full. Dripped at 280gr as requested when the mold was ordered. BHN 10.5. Worked up a load of 1100 fps for my Ruger 7 1/2" revolver. Very satisfying accuracy. Recoil from the Ruger was very manageable. No banged fingers. Powder coated , & sized at .430. Cast , coated & loaded . No fuss, no muss, & a clean shinny Bbl. after shooting. [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]love those PC bullets.

Very nice!


Whatever you are willing to put up with, is exactly what you will have.

When your ship comes in. ... make sure you are willing to unload it.

PAYPAL, sucks and I will never use them again. I recommend you do the same.

Nice looking bullets. Do you think they expand at all at that hardness at 1100 fps. I've been working on a load with Lee 310g at about 1050. I'm not sure how hard my alloy is but it's 4 pounds ww to 1 pound monotype. I'm saving up milk jugs to see how they do if I can catch one.

I lined up 5, 1 gal milk jugs at 70 yds. My 280gr bullet at 1100 fps penetrated all 5 jugs. Since my bullets are a BHN 10.5 they may expand a little. But, being such a flat nose, expansion is not really necessary. Also, these bullets are so heavy they carry "considerable momentum", which translates into "considerable penetration". A win, win as I see it. Reasonable recoil , with big time power.
