.... 45-140-400 ?   

holy crap that's gonna hurt on both ends...

Nah; just wear ear plugs.   :P

So yeah; 45-140-400...so...you're hunting African big game then.  That, or you're looking for some "real stopping power" on squirrels and rabbits.   ])M

It's a nifty project in either case.

by turning an every so slightly taller/higher insert...there you have a mold for our Remingtons that are on the large side i guess.

For a revolver you mean?  Hmm.  Maybe, but that would be a stunt.  The bullet pictured has a very long nose, for one thing.   Also you'll want a taper base or heel base bullet for a percussion revolver, and that would have to be formed after casting (see my post entitled "bullet heeler".  That, or you'd have to machine the taper or heel base into the core pin.  Or run the core pin right up to the base end of one of the lube grooves, and use the groove as a heel base.

Not saying it can't be done, as a stunt, but there are better options for a more compact bullet, in a mold that will produce more bullets, faster.

Just a question. If you were to use an 8 or 9mm blank surely after firing you would have to use a clearing rod to make sure there was no obstruction in the barrel or chamber ?
