Casting, Loading, & Shooting 250gr Coated Cast Lead Hollow Points 44 Magnum

Today, I show in this video the entire process from start to finish how I cast, powder coat, load, and shoot some 250gr coated cast lead hollow points in the 44 magnum. This is one of my “go to” loads for blasting milk jugs without much recoil.  These loads are perfect for maximum explosion with minimal recoil–great for those milk jug duels with the buddies.  Got questions?  Feel free to leave me a comment below, and I will do my best to answer it!

Do you check the lead hardness before you powder coat? If so, what’s your goal BHN?

Excellent video. I guess I need to get a 44 mag. My brother has a super redhawk and I have shot it a few times. I think it’s time to get my own.

This was a extremely excellent production FLT! I love that HP bullet. Ill add that mold to the list. My 240gr Unique load is the same at 10gr. Its funny to see many have the same loads. I think someone should one day put together a common node chart for various calibers lol

Good stuff Taco, I love blowing up jugs too. The hydraulic pressure breaking that block is cool. Leverguns 50 did a test on hydraulic pressure using his 50-110. Hope YT quits harassing you one day.👍🏻😬

I like the Lee 310 with 16 grains of AA#9. Need to work up some loads with that NOE mold you sent me. Got some cast just haven’t had time to test any. 👍🏻

I only did 2 shots and captured the bullet each time and hit very near center of the jug. I noticed the bottom brace under the table is bent about 4 inches down the the table its self is dis-formed.
