Coated Bullets ( Missouri Bullet Company)
« on: July 11, 2019, 02:59:54 AM »
Has anybody used 'coated' bullets like these https://www.grafs.com/retail/catalog/product/productId/28498 when reloading 45 Colt cartridges to shoot with your conversion cylinder?

The indoor range I use does not allow bare lead bullets, I have been shooting copper plated 250gn bullets but I have seen postings where people say this could be damaging my Uberti Remmy. I'm figuring these 'coated' bullets might be ok with the folks at my indoor range.

Any and all feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks, Retreever

I use these all the time in 9mm and .45acp but different makes, ARES made in Slovakia and H+N made in Germany. They use the same powder charge as a lead bullet with a lube ring.

So if you have a safe i.e LOW PRESSURE load for lead bullets for your Remington these are perfectly safe and won't do any damage at all.

Best thing is they leave the gun very clean and produce less smoke like FMJ bullets do. Hope this helps ?

i shot barrys plated bullets through my 58 until i found out i wasnt allowed to use plated bullets for SASS. plated is not the same as jacketed and will not hurt the barrels. but i have also used the coated bullets, the only thing i dont like about them is they are so slick, i drop them when im reloading ammo... i currently use Missouri's #4 bullets...

I've used their coated bullets in 9x18 Makarov. They shoot well and leave no residue behind.

Hi Retreever, I have bought 4 or 5 boxes of just the leaded ones and I painted them myself.

That way, I could have any color that I wanted.

Sam, the coated bullets are not just painted. They use a baked on polymer-type coating. I have coated some myself. Shake the bullets up in a plastic container with a little of the powder, then bake at about 400 degrees for 20 minutes or so. This melts the powder so it forms to the bullet surface.

Yes, they are powder coated, not just painted.

I know about the powder coated but, I was just saying that I saved money on just spray painting them and then baked them.

I believe I have found a Canadian source for coated bullets https://xmetaltargets.com/product/45-bullets-200-gr-rnfp-hi-tek/.

My question to the forum is do you think they are suitable for reloading .45 Colt cartridges?

Thanks, Retreever

Miguel, do you mean you use this product specifically or one like it.

Those actual bullets will be perfect. According to my 49th edition Lyman loading manual, here are some loads as suggested by Lyman.

200gr No2 alloy bullet

Starting load (minimum) Trail boss powder 5.8 grains gives 873fps and a chamber pressure of 10,600 C.U.P.

Maximum load 6.5gr, 934fps 13,000 C.U.P

CLAYS powder, starting 5.6gr, 837fps 8,400 C.U.P.................Perfect for a Remington, very low pressure.

Maximum 6.3gr 985fps and 12,200 C.U.P

UNIQUE Starting load 8.6gr, 918fps and 8,700 C.U.P..............................THAT'S the one I would go for.

Maximum load 9.6gr, 1083fps and 12,800 C.U.P 

Don't worry about the OAL, seat them deep as you need to fit your cylinder.

So get them bought fella.
