I am casting 000 buck, which are .360" round balls, for loading in both shotgun and my revolvers. I was looking for a 000 buck mold, and TATV Canada graciously sent this mold to me.
You can find TATV Canada here: https://thereloadersnetwork.com/authors/tatv-canada/
The mold is from Sharp Shooter USA, which used to be at http://buckshotmold.com/
I have plans to load these round balls into .410, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, .357 Maximum, and maybe even 9mm and .380 ACP. We shall see.

I am casting round balls for loading in my revolvers. I purchased these single ball brass molds from Jeff Tanner at http://www.ballmoulds.com/
I'm looking forward to loading these to shoot in .44 Special, .44 Magnum, and .45 Colt as both single ball and duplex loads.

I'm back! I wanted to make a quick video and let everyone know that I am home.
If you've been following the channel for more than six months you'll likely know that I left on a work trip back in March, and I have been overseas until just a few days ago, but I am back now, and I don't have any extended travel on the horizon that I am aware of. It is very good to be home!

I recorded most of this video more than six months ago, but I am just now finishing it and posting it.

The cylinder throats on my EAA Big Bore Bounty Hunter .45 Colt revolver measure .4565". The factory lead bullets are smaller than that which leads to leading and inaccuracy. I decided to reuse the components of some factory ammunition I had on hand, but improve the performance in my revolver with my own cast bullets which measure .457".

I recently purchased a mold to cast .45 caliber bullets for my 1911. In this video, I use the mold to cast three different style bullets, and then powder coat and size them. This mold has no lube groove, and the bullets must be coated with Hi-Tek or powder coat.

The MP Mold is the MP 452-200 HP: https://www.mp-molds.com/e-shop/molds/hollow-points-molds/mp-452-200-hp-4-cav-no-lube-groove

What is the future for gun channels on YouTube? Is firearms content going to be okay to post? Where can we turn to if YouTube turns us away? What should we be doing right now?

I attempt to answer these questions, and give some insight into the real motives behind YouTube's actions over the last 17 months.

I am still away on business, so I have not been able to record any new casting, reloading, or shooting videos, but I have been posting "teaser trailers" for the videos I took down in response to YouTube's new Policies concerning content featuring firearms. Some folks are starting to believe that such videos are going to continue to be okay to post on YouTube, but I still do not trust them to not issue me strikes and ban my channel. I have not deleted my videos - only moved them to other sites.
You can find all of the various sites where I currently host my content here: https://thereloadersnetwork.com/authors/loads-of-bacon/
Please, join us all at The Reloaders Network and keep up to date with all of your favorite channels: https://thereloadersnetwork.com/

Welcome to the Loads of Bacon channel!
I cover many topics here, but most of my videos are related to cast lead bullets, reloading, and firearms. I also do a fair amount of hollow point testing, and most of the hollow points are cast bullets as well.
If you enjoy my videos, I hope you'll subscribe and comment, and please join me and many other at The Reloaders Network - https://thereloadersnetwork.com
You'll be glad you did!

This is the third video in the Powder Coated Cast Lead Hollow Point Bullet Testing series, which is a long experiment testing powder coated cast lead hollow point bullets made from various alloys and fired at various velocities.

In this video I cast six different bullet styles from five different alloys.

The Lee 358-158-RF mold was hollow pointed by Erik Ohlen at http://www.hollowpointmold.com/
The 44 Keith SWC mold is the "MP 432-256 PB HP 4 cav" mold from https://www.mp-molds.com/

Everything is better with bacon!

This includes casting bullets and reloading ammo.

Believe anything I say at your own risk, (excluding, of course, that "everything is better with bacon" - that is an undisputable law of nature!)
