I got a couple new molds. One is for my 54's which I've been wanting and the other is a different design I'm going to try in my 50's.



The 54 I'm going to name Fatty Patty. She is .540 in diameter and .975 in length. She weighs 551 grains in pure lead.



The other one is Thor Pedo. He is .504 in diameter and is 1.002 in length. 478 grains in pure lead.



I don't know if I'll get the testing done to hunt with these this year but I'm going to see how they look on paper the first chance I get.

Gosh! Art, those are really some nice looking projectiles. Almost to good looking to shoot! Kinda makes me wish I was into those bullets - I would love to bang them into something.

Speaking of which... would the ones for the 54 stabilize in a 1-48 twist? Mt hunting partner uses a 54 TC Hawken and Power Belts - I sould love it if something like that would work for him!

JBM's twist calculator says 1.3 Green which means yes. That was with 1200fps.

Still seems marginal to me though. Kwk said no and another one said 1-40 at 1400fps.

One way to find out! I will be shooting them out of my white 540 and my 54 caliber Knight mks which are both 1 in 28' twist.

what molds are you using
Accurate molds. I will be getting another mold or mould soon from Brooks Moulds for my .451s.

Bullets look GREAT ART and Fatty Patty looks like she'll put the hurt on both ends. LOL

Ya I know they will shoot in a 1-28 - I am wondering if they will in an old -1/48 sidehammer. That is whay I would like to find out.
