Universal Bullet Mold for Experimentation
After a few tedious and only minimally successful attempts at making my own bullet molds for experimental bullet designs, I came up with a new mold design concept with interchangeable cavities. For casting large quantities of bullets, the mold is a bit tedious to use, but for experimenting with new bullet designs, where only a small number of bullets are needed for the initial test, it is perfect. The above video discusses the mold design, and the drawings are presented in this pdf:
Idaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than some parts of the US, the culture of Idaho still retains a frontier spirit of self-reliance. As host of TheIdahoanShow on YouTube, I endeavor to produce videos capturing this enduring pioneer spirit, at least as it is practiced by this Idahoan. Of course, shooting and associated ancillary activities are an important part of Idahoan culture, and so many of my videos pertain in some way to the making or testing of firearms and/or ammunition. Here on the Reloaders’ Network, I have endeavored to consolidate this portion of my work as a reference for the reloading community.
