Scott HaenelAnyone out there shoot cast in the 270 ???
I just started casting for pistol shooting about a year ago, I decided to give it a try for my rifle shooting.
@ less than 7 cents a shoot, this is cheaper shooting than paying friggin arm and a leg for 22s.

Re: Cast Bullet - 270 WinchesterI have five or six different molds right now, I made approximately 20-30 bullets for each mold.
I only had a chance to put about 30 rounds down range.
I must have looked like the biggest fool at the range, after my 1st shot I had the biggest grin on my face.
I loaded 30 rounds using:
8.8 grains of Unique
Lyman 280468s (108 grain) GC bullet
I was really happy with the results. My Ruger shot 2.8 inches low at 50 yards, but I was able to put 5 into a group of .920" with 1 called flyer off the bench. My worst 5 shot group was 1.3 inches.
I hope to get back out with a couple of sand bags and see what I can do with a steadier setup.
I still have a couple of other bullets to try:
280468l = 117 grain GC bullet
280412 = 139 grain GC bullet
280473 = 124 grain GC bullet
H & G = 150 grain GC bullet
Lee = 125 Grain GC bullet
I don't know about the LEE, the mold drops a bullet that's small compared to my groove diameter, so I may pass on that one.
