Source for Cast Bullets
« on: October 12, 2020, 05:42:42 PM »
I'm trying to buy soft cast bullets for 50 caliber Sharps cartridges but am having trouble sourcing them. Buffalo Arms offers them but they are out of stock now and their shipping is murderous to the wallet.

I need a soft .512" RN or RNFP weighing 425g to 473g, weights I find for the original loading. Anything between those two numbers would be fine. Oh and of course they have to be lubed with SPG or equivalent.

Any help is appreciated,
Dave

Largest one he lists on his site is 400gr.  Wouldn't hurt to check with him, though.

Yes Sir...that was my drift   :)

Mark does not list the 300 grain Swiss Vetterli he cast for me , or the 262 grain HB Webley I had just received.

Search for seller "Blue Falcon"  on Gunbroker.  He sells a wide variety of BPCR bullets, including some very unusual ones.  I've bought from him before, they are nice bullets.

HI

I use Missouri bullet company most of the time, for handgun, and smaller Sharps bullets.  I ordered 1000 185 Grain LSWC from them August 25th, still haven't gotten them, the website says 8-10 weeks now.
