Well today I have to head on down to Missoula, Mt and see a differant doctor and work evaluator, so along the way I am stopping at Rim Rock Bullets in Ronan, Mt.

For the 45-70 I am picking up 100 430-gr WFN GC and for the .44 Magnum I am picking up 200 305-gr WFN GC. These cast bullets some of you may not know it or not, are the very same bullets that Tim Sundles with http://www.buffalobore.com loads and sells. I am hoping to get Rim Rock Bullets as a sponsor as I have agreed to use nothing but Rim Rock Bullets for all my target work up, and hunting which I have even agreed to video for Frank @ Rim Rock Bullets.

430-gr WFN GC


305-gr WFN GC


Well you all have a good day, and of course when I get these loaded up, a range report will be documented as we are going to have fun with these as I am going to be using a differant penetration material for testing these.

I will say that all your questions can be answered as cost per 100 for both premium cast bullets as well as the Cowboy Bullets and the Gas Check bullets on the web site:

http://www.rimrockbullets.net

I can tell you that I came out of there with lots of bullets today, and no I can not share or tell you what I got them for :D

I also got me a Chrono as well today while down in Missoula at Sportsman's Warehouse, so I can now get a true FPS on my loads for testing and yes we're gonna have lots of fun testing these babies.

I'm guessing being in front is bad but being behind is no picnic either particularily with the GC variety.

Yes, these loads are for the .44 Mag

With the H110 I am starting off with 20.0 gr, CCI #300 LPP, and will run thru the Chrony to see what FPS I get with the SBH 4 5/8ths barrel. I know some one that has a SBH 7.5" that I can also test this with.

I will also load some at:

20.5
21.0 This will be the max load for the H110 powder, as I not wanting to increase over the top of 40,000 psi.

I will work these up slowly to see what we get.

I have seen the following on Load Swap over at BTB.

300-gr WFN GC Cast Bullets
Velocity Bullet Manufacturer Nose Profile Bullet Base Bullet Dia. Powder Charge Weight Primer Brass

1,365 fps Beartooth LMN GC .430 Vihta Vouri N110 20.7 grains Federal 155 Winchester

1291 fps Beartooth LMNDCG GC .432" 2400 18.0 grains WLPP Remington

1300 fps lbt 44-300-WLN mold wln pb .429 Hodgdon H110 21.0 grains Winchester Large Pistol (WLP) Winchester
Now the only thing is that we don't know what barrel length that these loads were tested on.

Post Edit

I removed those loads that showed increase powder loadings for H110 powder simply because I trust my source of information on a warning of increasing the .44 Magnum 40,000 psi.
