I haven't been able to do any bullet casting, reloading, or make any trips to the gun range in about 3 months. I finally had a chance to do all three, so I grabbed the mold for one of my favorite bullets, the Lyman 429421, which is Elmer Keith's famous bullet for the .44 Special and .44 Magnum.

The Ultimate Wheel Gun In the world of wheelguns, the word legendary comes to mind when talking about the Smith and Wesson 629 Performance Center 44 Magnum. Mention 44 Magnum to my sister and she immediately starts to quote detective Callahan from the movie Dirty Harry. For us wheel gun fanatics mention 44 Magnum and […]

Casting (open fire), Pan Lubing (bacon grease), Reloading (.44 Magnum), and Range Time – my Tacopocalypse VR
This video is a VR to the Tacopocalypse challenge issued by Full.Lead.Taco. His YouTube channel recently crossed over the 2,000 subscriber mark and that prompted him to do a giveaway. Taco is one of the nicest and most generous guys you'll ever talk to, and he has some of the best prize options of any giveaway I've ever seen. This video features bullet casting over an open flame, making bullet lube from bacon grease, pan lubing, reloading, and range time with my .44 Magnum.
I demonstrate how loading on a turret press is ideal for reloading a small batch of ammunition for load development. The turret press I use is the Redding T-7.
The "Skeeter Load", which is a 250 grain cast SWC loaded in a .44 Special case with 7.5 grains of Unique powder, is one of my favorite loads. This load, named for Skeeter Skelton, shoots from my 6 1/2" S&W Model 29 at about 950 fps. I want to duplicate this velocity when shooting the same bullet from my S&W Model 629 TALO Deluxe, which has a 3" barrel.

I decided to try casting 44 magnum / 44 special bullets by using two molds during the same casting session. The molds are the Lyman 429421 (the Elmer Keith SWC), and the Lee 429-200-RF.

Series Reboot The Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Test was the series that brought me to YouTube. In February of last year I started my YouTube channel, and the primary reason was so that I could post videos concerning the extensive tests I planned to do with cast hollow point bullet.
