Just curious. I've been wanting to give 'em a try. Favorite weight? 170 grainers?
I'd be interested in kowing how they work out. Nice thing about the XD vs. the Glocks is that you can shoot cast bullets safely because of the XD's conventional rifling. By the way, stay away from Magnus cast bullets - lots of surface (casting) defects. I bought a box of 500 200 gr. RN for my .45, never again.Corsair_001 said:I am getting ready to make my cast bullet order and will be trying 180 gr for my XD and Ruger 40's.
Got a link?FreeAmerican said:I was using 180 gr with bullseye, but I was still gettign a little leading. I then switched to Berry's plated case 155 and I have had great results and no leading and no smoke! Berry's claims you can load them to low to moderate fmj loads. I am running Berry's 155 with 5.3 of Win 231.
They work just fine, I've shot about 1,000 through mine. Just be prepared to spend a lot of time cleaning. I've just loaded a few plated Rainiers and hopefully it won't take so damn long cleaning the bore.kraigster414 said:Just curious. I've been wanting to give 'em a try. Favorite weight? 170 grainers?
