Great !
I am not finished with cast bullet shooting either.
Making your own bullets is a handy thing for sure, nowadays !



I need to get some of that Montana Lead remover.


Phil Shoemaker : "I went to a .30-06 on a fine old Mauser action. That worked successfully for a few years until a wounded, vindictive brown bear taught me that precise bullet placement is not always possible in thick alders, at spitting distances and when time is measured in split seconds. Lucky to come out of that lesson alive, I decided to look for a more suitable rifle."

I use Marvel Mystery oil for mr cast bullet rifle cleaning. Patch wrapped caliber brush soaked. Three patches yield spotless bore. Leaves bore lubed too.

I use a .458 Hoppe's BORE SNAKE. I rarely use anything else in any rifle. Two pulls through and I'm good to go for the year. Of course, when I put it away for the winter, it gets another pull through and a light oil treatment. That has saved an awful lot of scrubbing!

Shooter's Choice MC#7 Firearms Bore Cleaner is a good solvent for lead removal also. Patches and brushes and don't forget a little ball of 0000 steel wool
pushed and pulled back and forth on a jag for lead removal.
Also remember that stuff makes good firestarter for the survival kit.
That extra-fine steel wool comes coated in petrochemicals to keep it from rusting, blazes right up with a spark from a flint and mouth blowing.

Bob has kindly posted and expanded upon some material from me at his blog.
See his black bear kill with a 400-gr .458 bullet there, including recovered bullet photo.

Hannay gets a big buy a donkey for bringing his pdf up to the bottom of page 232.

THE MISSION continues in a thread started by Mike McGuire at 24hrcampfiredotcom.
I will make any further remarks on the Great .458 Winchester Magnum+ at that location and wherever free speech AND truth are allowed.

RIP do you know if the USRA’s Winchester Custom Ship 458 Lotts used Jack Lott’s throat or long Won Mag throat?

Bob - I read your latest post - nice to see a photo of the Speer. Do you know about what the bear weighed? If you have any recovered bullet photos of the Remington bullet, I'd certainly be interested in seeing them.

I've managed to get some more Speer bullets and also Remington bullets. I'm pretty sure either will be fine for the local whitetail deer - they rarely go much over 150 pounds field dressed.

Hannay;

The only recovered bullet I have is the one in the photo at my blog -- I still have it but it has turned much darker with age.

All I know, the bear was a good one, and one of the best I've shot in over 30 years. Pic of the rug on my office wall has shown up from time to time in my blogs.

In my next blog (Saturday), I'm talking more on bullets for the .458, including the 400 SPEER with a ballistic profile and recommendation for it's use.

I was hopeful this thread had finally died a peaceful death!



Shoot the largest caliber you can shoot well, and practice, practice, practice.
