from a 250gr mold they dropped at just under 230gr. at 50yds they shot ok. next try Ill shooting a little further. I just tried them to see if Id get any barrel fouling. it was as clean as if Id shot jacketed bullits. I have now bought a 300 gr mold that uses gass checks. Im loading 45 colt, but 44 mag should be close [ just a little faster]. Ill let you know how they turn out. DR
Bisley- thanks for the link. Midway was the one catalog I hadn't looked at. I'm curious of those bullets listed on the Midway link, what would be your recommendation what is the one that is due too come out that you hinted about?Dangerranger- Tin? Interesting....What is the average weight of one of those tin bullets?

I wonder how hard the certification process is? when I spoke informally with a local game warden He said that I should carry with me the label from the tin showing it as lead free. just like carrying the label from the bullits I use for reloading. that puts a new kink in the works. DR
Those wouldn't be legal because they aren't certified nonlead.http://www.dfg.ca.go...tifiedammo.html

This certified list will be updated as new applications are received and approved.

For my 45 colt, I have some Buffalo Bore 225 grains, made by...you know, at a speed stated to be 1500fpsI got them for display, if I happen to be hunting with the game warden. I just feel SO DIRTY stuffing the chambers with anything other than lead...hell, even using a copper gas check feels a little kinky!
May the hunting Gods forgive me for showing a page with bullets made by,.............well, you know. Wait for them to stock the other brand coming soon.http://www.midwayusa...yword=lead free

Have Nosler or Hornady come out with competing designs as reloading components? I have some brass for my 300wsm sized/primed and ready to hand load when they do.
I was talking about the General Bullets. I do not know how they shoot, just so you know. But I would throw General Bullets by hand before I would be caught dead shooting barnes!!! Whether I'm or not, it still, always, needs to be said. I find it disturbing how some people will not buy products made in China, but they will still support THAT company?!
