I have been casting bullets for some time now, rifle and pistol bullets.
Last season some friends and I have been testing 7.5mm cast bullets, in 180grn 30 cal.. This is a bullet normally used in 30-06, .308 and so on.
I've been reloading for years, but never cast my own. Moving around in the military to much I would have to get rid of the materials every few years.
Thankfully, I always hooked up with guys that would cast and I would pay for the lead and have cast for me. Now that we have our own house and I'll be retired soon, I may start to finally cast my bullets.
On a side note, a Captain that works in my section, just sold me almost 400, 44 caliber cast bullets from Montana bullet works for $25.
The only thing you should feel when shooting insurgents is recoil.
i shoot around 6k .45acp a year and if i cast my own i think i would spend more time casting than shooting lol....i still get a good deal on bulk moly coated swc's that i dont know if i would save any $ doin it...it might be fun to try tho...mebe for my .44mag
