Has anyone tried the Lee bullet mold in the .375 250gr in the 38/55 Winchester? I see this is a plain base bullet so was wondering what FPS I can expect with hunting accuracy. Would like to get around 1800 FPS.

Thanks, Allen

It is a bevel base, so I would not push it too fast- you might get gas cutting around the base of the bullet. Casting it around Bhn 15 would get you a little more velocity without leading.

you could try some of the buffer compound for shotguns--several guys on the leverguns forum have used it with good results to protect the base of lead bullets.
