    LEE C430-310-RF 310gr. CAST BULLET

    Does anyone use this bullet in their Marlin .444? If so how is the accuracy? Any casting problems?

    Thanx ! Hip

    Plenty (?) of reloaders use it.
    It's one of the better non-custom moulds for the .444
    Depending on the jerk behind the trigger it can be as accurate an any other bullet.
    The only minor problem is the nose is kind of fat and it has to be seated deep to keep the bullet off the rifling when chambered. You either have to trim the case short to use the crimp groove or just crimp on the ogive.

    Shoot one off the bench at 2,100 ft/sec and there isn't any doubt that it is a thumper.

    It's one of the best casting molds that I have, but I only use it for .44 Magnum.

    Thanks for the replys guys. I think I'll spring for one even though I don't have a good source for wheel weights. My grandson gets me some but about half of them are zinc and unusable.

    I use it for 44 Magnum in my Rossi 92 in front of some H110. Pretty accurate. The bullet has two crimp grooves, and will only cycle through the lever gun seated to the top groove (seated deeper). Load accordingly.

    Hip,

    If you are looking for lead, you should be able to find a marina on Long Guyland that has an old scrap silboat keel laying around. One of them babies will make a bunch of bullets.
