A .475 CALIBER BULLET STARTS OUT BIG AND YES YOU CAN MAKE THEM GET BIGGER WITH A HP AND A PROPER ALLOY, BUT MY PERSONAL PREFERENCE IS BULLET INTEGRITY.

I'd love to get in on this for my 475L, but I'm not casting yet. I'd want a little more weight though, something closer to 400. Tracker runs a 390-400 grain HP out of his 480, and he gets very good expansion, and a bullet going out the other side.

You can have your cake and eat it too 😀

This may be a good slug for my possible short tube 475L build though, hmmm..

Elmer Kieth considered the SWC bullet design to be one of the most efficient designs for anything in the lower 48 states. [/quote]


Good old Elmer Keith.

How about a HP mold of LBT 420 grain double crimp groove for the 475 & 480 shooters?

Marshal Stanton provided me samples of this bullet. I intend to send sample to Al Nelson at NOE molds and create CAD drawing. From there it will posted under the discussion section of NOE forum. All we need is 9 other committed buyers since I?m already in for the long haul.

I'm shooting the Montana bullet works 420 in my 475L at the moment. Send me a PM when you get the drawings. I'd be interested in a 2 cavity brass if available. It will be waiting for me when I get the rest of my casting equipment up and running.

Always true. I do vasilate back and forth but if bullet integrity is key then monometal is the way. Anyway. Im clouding the issue.

That bullet that we make is designed so that if the nose does happen to shear it still weighs about 300 grs & that's a lot of bullet weight going forward. But with this Miha bullet it's easy to change pins & make it a solid that comes out about 410 gr depending on alloy. We've had exits on mature Bison with HP's.
The trick, if you want to call it that is to drive it the correct velocity for the alloy you're using when shooting HP's. Over drive them & you can make them fail. Mark, sent you a PM.

James I wish I could recover a bullet like the one in the picture. My load punches on through and keeps on trucking . Going to have to find a giant hog at distance to catch the magic bullet.
