I just picked up a Taurus Thunderbolt in 45 Colt and need to concoct loads that have a max. OAL of 1.580 . I understand that the Winchester Cowboy loads work well in that rifle, so was wondering what mould(s) comes closest to that bullet. Thanks.
Look at a Lyman 452664. It's one of the "Cowboy Bullets" that was designed for Cowboy Action Shooting. I'm using the 357 and both 44 bullets of this series and they are excellent. The lube grooves are big enough for black powder use, with the right bullet lubes. Good crimping groove...or go to a taper crimp die; they've both worked for me.
