Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Proper mould for Swiss Vetterli with 38mm brass

#1 Post by KneverKnew » Tue May 07, 2019 8:54 pm

I want to cast the same kind of bullet that works properly with 38 mm brass with an overall length of 2.2 inches. Bullet weight should be about 310 to 320 grain’s preferably with a flat point. Any suggestions appreciated. I’ll mainly be pan lubing with green speed or tumble lubing with XLox or Alox.

I am playing with the Lee C430 310 RF.


Hopefully it will work well

That’s the one that I was contemplating on getting. Would be useful in my Smith & Wesson 6 to 9 as well. I’m just wanting to make sure that I can crimp the bullet at the proper 2.2 inches for cycling in the tube. I didn’t know if anyone would suggest one of the Vetterli bullets that seem to be available. Not sure about using them
