Like the title implies, Lets see who's casting and for what? Ok I'll start.
6.5mm
6.5 swede
6.5mm TCU
7mm, 150 gr fn GC hunter, 168 gr RCBS
7/08
7mm TCU
7mm Rimmed international
.30 cal.310
30 Herrett
30/30 win
.303/.314 diam
.303 brit
.356 diam
9mm
.38 super
.357/.358 diam
.38 spec.
.357 mag
.357 max
.357 Herrett
.375/.376 diam
375 win
.44 /.429/.430 diam
.44 rem mag
.445 supermag
.451/.452 diam
.45 acp
and more on the way! I mainly use semi custom boolit moulds purchased from/thru group buy's over at the Cast boolits website but do have a number( large) that are off the shelf modles a well. I find that casting is just an extention of the rest of the shooting experience. Not to mention creating cheaper loading= more trigger time! Ok lets play! Who's next ?

Wow that is a lot of casting. I cast for my 45, that's about it right now. There aere others on here who cast as well, blacksmithden comes to mind. I believe I saw MT Chambers register the other day as well.

Holy crap Norm !!! Ok...you probably shouldn't have posted all that....can I borrow your 303 mold ? :) I promise I'll get my lead melting stuff out of your garage very soon !!! LOL

As for me...let's see.

Casting for my:

44 mag - 429 cal, 240 grain round nose and semi-wadcutter
30-30 win - 308 cal, 170 grain flat nose
300 win mag - 308 cal, 180 and 200 grain (yes...extremely reduced loads)
12 gauge slugs
I've got a mold around here somewhere for making 45ACP 230 grainers, but I don't own a 45 anymore
Round ball for "0" buckshot and "000" buckshot

...and I'm trying to remember what else...it'll come to me later.

We're starting a bullet casting tutorial today...going to take some pics and video. It'll take me a while to put the whole thing together, but at least I'm finally getting started on it. I've only been promising to do it for 2 or so years now. LOL.

My .303 mould is a NOE from the (cast boolits forum) group buy and it drops from the cavities @ 316 so sizing to 314 for my brit is not a problem, fueled with 19.2 gr of 2400 and lit off with a large pistol primer . Ringing the rams @ 200 meters is hardly even a chalenge ! YMMV.
