Hello all, I have a couple bricks of pure lead that were gifted to me a while back, I would wager about 100lbs worth. I hunt with a 50cal modern inline using 44 cal saboted bullets. I have a few questions on casting up this lead into what would probably be a lifetime supply of hunting projectiles for me. I am looking at molds to produce 250ish grain 44 or 45 cal pistol bullets to shoot in a sabot over Blackhorn 209. - Is pure lead suitable for this task or will I need to create an alloy? - Do cast bullets shot in sabots still need to be lubed? - I use modern hollowpoint bullets now. What is the preferred cast bullet type for whitetail deer? - Assuming I find a combo my rifles like, are home-cast bullets able to maintain sufficient accuracy to kill deer at 150 yards? I don't usually like shooting at distances much more than where I can produce a 2" group off a bench. I shoot a CVA that will do 2" at 150 pretty easily, and am considering buying a Knight Ultralite which includes a MOA accuracy guarantee to 200. Is that still doable with home cast? Shooting and hunting are hobbies of mine, but I have a young family and putzing around with bullets and various loads just isn't something I have a ton of time/patience for. My goal here would be to find a suitable load, spend a few weekends casting up everything I have, and sit back knowing I have projectiles for decades of hunting. Does this seem like a feasible goal, or should I just pick up a few OT shifts with my time and buy a bunch of bullets I know already work? Thanks for your time.
