28 cal bullet shootout

Finally had good conditions at the range today.† AND I had it all to myself from 8-11 am.† Shooting my new heavy barreded 28 with the Beverage mold I picked up off of eBay, the .28 brass mold made by John Louis (thanks again John ,Rich$ and Jerry) and a few bullets from a mold that Westerner has.† JL's mold is showing promise.† It may be a bit large for the .284 bore, but I still need to give it more of a workout.†I may just need to find the powder sweet spot.† †Was running out of bullets and the conditions were going south.† I should have an Accurate mold to test as well once I get back from Spokane. Time to cast some more to play with if conditions are decent in Spokane.

Looks as if it wants to shoot! May I ask the make of the barrel and the twist rate?

Cheers...   Jim

It is an RKS gain twist.  Ends at 8.5 I think.  Maybe 9.  It is 1.3" in diameter.  Super secret custom case.  we call it a 28 G&H.

Bpjack,
I would try adjusting your load before shorting the mold. 12.8 grs of 300 mp and bullets from that mold shot just fine, with no tipping, in my rifle.

Frank,

Not going to shorten it.† As far as I am concerned it was loaned to me.† I have only shot it about 30 stimes, so more testing to come.† Joe said Pete is shooting 160gr bullets in his 28.† I have an Accurate mold on the way It measures 1.01".† John's mold is .952, the Beverage is .915 ans Joe's is .887.†

Many other things to try.†

Jack

BPJack Bruce Kirby has a Smith 28 that ends at 8 or 9. I made him a mould that casts a Spitzer and I just talked to him he says it measures 1.200 long and weighs 184 grains. lubed. I told him you had the same barrel and he said he would bring the mould up to Tommy's for you to look at. The bullet Rich gave you is not to long by any means if anything it might be over spinning a bit in your Smith 8 or 9 twist we use it in a 12 twists and it flys point on. Of course depends on the velocity I believe Rich was around the high 1500 velocity range but could be wrong.

I will take my chrony with the next time I go to the range and see where I am at.  I might have one more range outing before I head to Spokane.  It will be nice to see Bruce again.

Iím shooting a 142 grain Saeco in my original Stevens barrel.  It does well, but I would be interested to try a heavier Bullet if one of you has a mould you are finding boring. Not looking for a gift, by the way.

BPJack Bruce called me back and said he will bring a 100 lubed bullets to Tommy's to try. As well as the mould and if you are interested he said he would also let go. I won't be sharing that price with you here and now but you can PM if you might like to know. If you are not interested just go ahead and let Bruce know and I will go ahead and buy it for myself.

I guess if you like EXTREMELY long base bands, in a Mos copied design, it might be interesting to try. I haven't seen very good score from it though.

When I get back from Spokane I will cast you some billets from that mold to try.

A wonderful gesture. Thank you. My bullets are good enough to try at Chinquapin next week and maybe Etna Green in a couple of weeks. But itís always interesting to try something new.

Back and getting caught up. 
Frank I would like to try any tapered 28 mold.  Bring the mold or some bullets to Spokane.

We wanted a fast twist to try heavier bullets.  I had this made to experiment with.  Both my 32-40s and 25-20 are shooting as well as can be expected when I do my part.
