I've been trying out a new bullet mold offering from Accurate Molds for 45 S&W (http://www.accuratemolds.com/bullet_detail.php?bullet=45-230S-D.png
. This is his 45-230S. Basically, the exposed portion of the bullet matches some of the original designs, so that the appearance of the loaded cartridge is very close to the original. The portion of the bullet that is within the case, however, has some modifications. There is no hollow base and there is only one larger lube groove. The weight is designed to be about 230 grains when cast with wheel weights. There is also a crimp groove.
The photo shows an old cartridge from my collection, one of my loads with Starline brass and a recently cast bullet. (Sorry for the nose damage on the bullet--I managed to drop it just before I took the photo and was too lazy to go get another one. I didn't think it would show up in the photo.)
I have been using this bullet for a couple of weeks in my Uberti Schofield and it is showing a great deal of promise. Because of the limitations of the Uberti revolver, I have only been using smokeless loads, but I have been pleased with the performance.
Tom at Accurate Molds does an amazing job in producing his molds. I have two and I am very impressed.
