Does any one know if the 38 call wadcutter cast bullet been loaded in 357 Magnum loads or can it be? I am casting the Lyman 358495 148gr WC plain base bullet casted in Lyman #2 Alloy. My Lyman 4th edition cast bullet handbook does not have load data for WC design but does have load data for 150gr SWC design but does call for bullet to be casted of Linotype. It would be shot out of revolvers with 2 1/2" , 5" , 8" barrels and out of a Henry big boy and Marline 1894 cowboy rifles.
Has the 44-40 WCF even been loaded with a hollow base wadcutter bullet? I would be using the NOE. 215gr hollow base wadcutter bullet and it would be shot out of a New Origional Henry Iron Framed rifle. Rt now I am casting Lyman #427666 200gr FN plain base casted of Lyman #2 alloy 211.9gr is the 20ct randome average. I size them to .429 dia 2500 plus lube and loading them with 2400 13.2gr 1035fps and have good accuracy and no leading. I have just been itching to load the hollow base wc for it.
Different alloy not with standing, does a bullets design play any part in a rounds preshure at round ignition and bullet travel from cylinder to forcing cone and down the barrel? I know bullet design can affect how a bullet travels to its target.
If I keep round under 1000fps I use the Carnauba Blue lube over 1000fps I use 2500 Plus lube , rifle and pistol cast bullets .
