    I've seen these style bullets used in 38Special for a while now, for pin shooting. I have not tried any for the larger calibers, but perhaps I will. Might be really interesting in a rifle, but I dislike those hard lubes. S/F...Ken M

    Pretty interesting, WESHOOT2

    Thanks for the link to your very informative write up.

    Does Penn have a web site, or are those bullets handled by any of the big component suppliers? I've never heard of the brand.

    Best,
    Johnny

    Not much of a website, I ordered 1000 of his 45 acp 200lswc, and some 9mm 124 gr. casts a couple months ago.

    They are the highest quality most consistent cast bullet I have ever seen Brinell 20.

    Call him and order some you will be pleased.

    He's located near Pittsburgh pa. the shipping UPS ground is expensive relative to local made bullets, but there is some kind of 70 lb deal.

    SAS shooters in my club swear by his 44 mags for their lever actions. something about them feeding correctly.

    YOU'RE WELCOME

    Penn Bullets has been around a long time, has consistently improved their product line, and supports the shooting sports.
    And the 'gentlemen' factor...........

    I swore that I'd only get .45 Colt bullets from my moulds...but this sounds like big medicine.

    10.0 grs. Unique behind a 270 gr. lead coke can?

    Hope my Blackhawk has been eating it's Wheaties.

    :D

    I did that a couple of decades ago using a Lee 429 255 gr mold and a .421 drill bit. And on the other cavity I used an end mill to make a flat pointed one the first weighs 280 and the second one weighs 340. They worked well in my Dan wessons.
