Anybody interested? I just ordered a mould set from Magma this afternoon. This one has a big flat nose.

Would most folks prefer this in a soft (12) or harder (18) BHN?

Heck, yes. Me, I think I'd favor the harder of the two.

I looked at the bullet's profile at Magma's website. Looks like a .45 Colt bullet with a hypothyroid problem :D

If I were to get that big boy, I think the harder bullet would be better. I bet that makes a good hog bullet. Probably take a good, slow powder like AA#9 or 2400 or H110 to get that up to full knockdown potential, huh?

I'll got against the grain and say softer for me. I use 200 grain bullets in IDPA to make minor at low velocity, and at those speeds, softer would be better. I can see uses for the harder bullet too of course. How about a 18 BHN 200 grain .358 SWC for .357 Magnum and Maximum?

You get that big thing up and running and I would like to try some in my 35 Rem.

I would be. I use 180 RNFPs for hunting so the harder one for a .357 mag load would be great.

..except for that oddball Landric, for whom we will happily make soft ones! :-)

Magma doesn't make a 200 grain one, though. They do have a 230 grain bowling pin bullet. It looks like a dowell.

I don't know when the moulds will arrive, same as always. I'll post when they're here and available. I'm looking forward to this bullet, which is a bevel-base (forgot to mention that.)

Thank you guys for your help; I really do appreciate it, as always.

Ya know, Brad, you've got this thing backwards. Most companies poll their customer base and ask "Whatcha think about us doing this" before they actually do it.

But not Missouri Bullet! You order the moulds and THEN ask, "Anyone want these? I hope so, because I just ordered it."

Kinda makes me chuckle...don't know why...

If you are looking for a new company slogan, I've got it for you. It might be considered a bit tacky, but here it is, anyway...

"It's hard to be good. It's good to be hard. Missouri Bullet: Hardness Optimized."

Whatcha think? :D

thanks for filling a void. your bullets are good stuff, and your service is great.

this new offering in 18-20 BHN should allow 357 lever gun users to max out hunting potential with H110.

so what will these BB bullets be sized at ?
I have a old Trooper with .3585" cylinder mouths and a 1:14 twist barrel, it really likes a .358" dia bullets and better yet a flat base for harder cast bullets to reduce leading, I not sure yours would work well in this gun ?
