Does any one know of any sources of flat-front Wadcutters, or Molds for making them, for Target/Defensive use in .44 Cap and Ball, and, .45 Long Colt?

Mike at Mastercast might be able to help you - mike@mastercastbullets.com

or

Vern - gutshot_again@yahoo.com is a great resource - he sells on gunbroker.com a lot, and has molds for lots of stuff you won't find listed. (there is an underscore you can't see there on gutshot_again).

Both are great guys, make great products, and will answer you. I buy from both and will buy from them again.

Redding makes or made a 225 gr wadcutter mould and they will make on special order a 255 gr wadcutter block. I bought a set when they were a standard item and the will work well in 45 Colt. I've also used them in my 45/70 for a light "squirrel" load. 2 of these in a 45/70 over a charge of 2400 were quite accurate out to 75 yards.
