    My new mold just came in from accurate molds. This design draws on traditional RNFP bullets / big Lube / wadcutter.
    I call her the 45 THUMPER. Man o man does she Thump! Hope you guys like it

    Is this also meant for cartridges? Looks like it has a crimp groove.

    That thing would pack a wallop. Nothing like flat soft lead to make the most of black powder velocities.

    How does that differ from the 45 PRS 250g Big Lube offers? Which by the way is specifically intended for BP cartridges, in this case the 45 Colt.
