Any problems w/ lead bullets in the 454? As I am not yet into casting my own, I would appreciate any tips on good sources of lead bullets that can withstand the velocities of the 454. I am using D&J cast bullets now. They advertise that they are good up to about 1300 fps so I am loading on the light side to accomodate this.

Yep I have two that will definitle hold up to the 454 one is a 260gr semi wadcutter gas check the other is a 325gr gascheck bullet check them out. And yes we have pushed them faster than 1300fps

I push that 325 grain of Billy's to 1550 fps in my RB .454 Casull and that's not really a max load but it super accurate there so I don't see the need to push it any faster. That's become by favorite bullet and favorite load for the .454 Casull.

Thanks. Any tips on where I can find these? Also, I am trying to figure this gas check thing out. I have seen some of these at Midway. A copper disk that is cast into the base of the bullet?
