    Well lets wake this section up ....... noobie .444 cast and stumped question

    I would like to start casting but I can't figure out which mold I need .... 1,2,6 cavity ...... manufacturer .... I can't find what I need in a mold number (confused on all those numbers) ..... I what gas check cuz I like speed ...... I like 265 - 300 grn .... I like lite weight with my speed ......

    But to start off I would like to buy some already cast but only 1 of 3 sites seem to have what I want/looking for (stock or no stock) 265 gr .432 cast boolits w/check (265 will take anything I want in PA,Look out squirrels) .....

    Any help Anybody have some to share (sell) or any weight just to shoot .....

    You seem to have done a good job of knowing what you want. Here is a link to Ranch Dog's 432-265 bullet for sale.
    Ranch Dog Outdoors
    If you like that bullet (and I am confident that you will) then you can shop around for one of those molds. If you can not find the mold, you can go to one of the mold makers like Mountain Molds or Accurate molds or a similar mold maker and they can make a copy of that mold for you.
    This bullet with my wheel weight alloy, weighs about 275 grains. You say you like speed? My load for the RD432-265 has higher muzzle velocity than the 265gr Hornady Superperformance factory load in my 22" barrel. 2315 fps avg. for RD432-265 and 2296 fps avg. for the Superperformance factory load.

    I have that same mold. It's the best bullet I have found for the 44. If you want to try those bullets before you try to find the mold, you can buy them from Carolina Cast Bullets. They use alot of the Ranch Dog Molds.

    Sharkey,

    I suggest you get in line at Beartoothbullets.com if you want to try some commercially cast bullets before you buy your own molds. Bes ure to read about slugging your barrel on the same site before you actually order. You need to know the diamter of the the bullets you want to shoot for best accuracy in the .444.

    I have this mold and love it!

    432 265Gr. RF RG2 cavity GC (RD), NOE Bullet Moulds

    It is a RanchDog with standard lube grooves. I use the flat point for hunting and run the hollow point for fun.

    NOE molds are top quality.
    The road less traveled ain't for the faint of heart
