    I got to test fire my new mold It's a NEI 458-440-GC . The ww weight is 464gr with .35 meplat. I am using IMR 4198 37gr with cci mag primers Hornandy gas checks. At 50yds all shots touched, I use Williams peep and Marbles green fiber optic. I have a pinger made of 1" steel plate, the target part is a 6" diamond, it will stand it straight up in the air. The only other gun that will out due this is my 458 win mag. I shot it into a red clay bank today (if you live in Alabama you know the stuff) the clay was wet with lots of small rocks. The shock wave made a 3" hole in the clay about 4" deep, the boolit went in 3 more inchs. Needless to say I am pleased with this. I have no way to tell how fast they are going but if my math holds up I'll say it's about 1596fps. The recoil is a little stiff but no bad but if you shoot big boomers recoil is a part of life. The recovered weight was254gr. I hope this is interesting to someone.
