Ballards may be weaker,
but they sure are neater!

None of my .38-55's with midrange tang sights will get me past about 650 yds. Regardless of bullet weight. Just run out of height adjustment before I get to even 800 yds.

I ordered a Buffalo Arms "Money" .378 360gr mould to start with. I'm new to casting lead bullets. Any input would be great.

Thanks
Robert

Preheat the mold on a hot plate. With that bullet use 1 pound of tin to 16 pounds of lead. Heat the alloy to at least 750 degrees - 825 would be great. Use a snouted ladle like Lyman or RCBS and rotate the mold from horizontal to vertical and keep the ladle in hard contact for a count of 3 to 5. Make sure the sprue hardens before you cut it. If it tears the base at all you didn't wait long enough. Get a rhythm going and stick to it. Oh, and start with a very clean mold. Since it is coming from BA, scrubbing the mold when you get it several times with a toothbrush and alcohol will suffice. Don't use scotch - it is a crime.
