“Money Bullets” for the Browning .40-65 BPCR

Those of you with a Browning .40-65 may be interested in the subject article.  The 0.410” diameter bullets may also work well in other .40 caliber rifles.  Go to: (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)

I shoot a 410 grain Boomer Money bullet with a diameter of .410 in my .408 groove-to-groove 1874 .40-65 Shiloh Sharps with a 16:1 twist.

I always shoot bullets .001 to .002 wider than the groove-to-groove diameter of my barrels.

My first test target using the Boomer Money bullet.

Had a flyer and I never adjusted my sights far enough to the right.

If I had a tapered bullet I could get more than the 52.7 grains of Swiss FFFg into her.

Dave, if it's shooting like that, are you sure you even want more powder, or a change in taper? Nice work.

Yes the nose band of my Boomer Money bullet is .410 in diameter and it fully engages the leade of my 1874 Shiloh Sharps.

I use Swiss FFFg to increase velocity because I cannot move the bullet any more forward to increase the amount of powder.

If you have a long leade a wider nose band is effective to ensure your bullet is tight and more centered and does not have to jump across the leade.

I believe having a bullet touching the lands improves accuracy.
