I got 69 usable .45 cal 200 grain SWC and 23 usable .45 cal 255 grain SWC done before the on-call phone went off and I had to stop. It was 9:00 anyway.
They look awfully shiny to me. I have no idea what the hardness is either.
I just used the ingots I got from ebay. I suppose I should buy a hardness tester.
I think I need a sizer too, the bullets measure between .452 – .455.
I’ll be trying another batch tomorrow night and maybe some more this weekend. Whee.
