Definitely some interesting cases they’ve created. I like the idea of a robust case that can be reloaded many times. Alas, like yourself though, I too shoot only cast bullets for my handgun calibers. Great video and thank you for testing these out.

That was a good review. I hadn’t realized that they were actually LESS expensive than new 9mm brass cases. Like you, I shoot a lot of cast bullets, particularly through my semi-autos including 9mm. Even without the cast bullet issue, I doubt that I would ever decide to switch gears at this point. I’m already heavily invested in 9mm brass, probably having enough on hand to last me until I die. I have to admit that Some of the features ARE enticing, though. Being magnetic is a definite plus. Doing the math on the case weights, a 15 -round mag… Read more »

Another fine video from Mr. Bacon! Now I gotta go find the one about the wrench! That looks interesting for sure. I would love to check these out and work with them, but I’ve got more projects than I can get done already. I hope whoever win these cases and dies will vdo some videos about how well they work. Good price, too.

Very interesting! You can throw my name in the hat. I think there has to be a way to load cast bullets in them. And if you only wrecked a few that means a person would have 900 and some chances to succeed.👍😁 you know what they say if at first you don’t succeed get a bigger hammer! 😂😂😂

I saw these a while back and kinda forgot about them. I glad you got some to try out and appreciate the testing you did. It’s a shame they don’t seem compatible with cast projectiles. I would like a chance at the give away. I have plenty of FMJ bullets to fill them up.

Very interesting product LOB, as always thank you for your thoughtful work. I wonder where the crimp die is grabbing the case wall. Those dies have a carbide ring at the mouth and then the crimp swage at the top. Maybe some lube on the cases? Or maybe try changing the set up, like back the die body out and thread the crimp adjuster lower. I think this product will be attractive to some folks and the price is surprisingly affordable.

I use that same chamber checking tool to inspect my completed rounds.

Collecting them for reuse seems problematic on other than a home range.

Are they Dawn Dishsoap compatible ?

I am guessing they might work Jim Dandy with a hard cast lead bullet sized to plated or jacketed specs. Oregon Trail uses Colonel Sanders secret recipe to make a hard cast bullet without leading. So perhaps that a hard, high BHN, might work.

I am curious about them. So sign me up for the give away ?

Many people won’t copy and paste this, but my true sarcastic friends will copy and paste it because they know this was copied and pasted from a dear friend in need of more stuff to copy and paste; and if you don’t copy and paste it, then this means you hate veterans, your kids, kittens, puppies, God, and bacon.

And if you hate bacon, the terrorists win…

Interested. I load both cast and jacketed for most of my rounds.

That sucks about cast but would love to use them with my extreme defense carry loads. Half the weight in two 17rd mags would be helpful

Very interesting! I just started casting and don’t want to buy jacketed bullets anymore, so I will pass on the give away. Maybe they will improve over time to include cast bullets, that would be nice. I am curious, they said the primer pockets were larger? Did you notice anything priming them? Very generous of you and I love the concept.

Love to test these and chrono to see what the ES and SD look like. Like that they are magnetic and wonder how they will come out after a wet tumbling. I only load fmj or plated, Question: Did you spray lube these before use? Did you happen to cut one in half to see what’s up with the separation issue?

From what I heard you do not need to tumble at all. Just wipe clean and reload.
