    I have a Browning BPCR. Slug your bore. I believe the Badger bbl will be .409. The Lyman moulds seem to be smaller at .457. You would be better served, less money in the long run, to buy a mould from Steve Brooks or Buffalo Arms at .459. Been there, done that. Why waste a season, the primers, the powder
    ?

    Slugged the bore and it was actually .457 maybe .458 with the calipers I used. I had some of these Lyman Postell bullets from this mold I had bought several years ago for a 45-70 and never used so I tried them and it seems to like them. At least I can hit an 8" gong at 400 yards 4 out of 5 times. Figured this would be an easy mold to find but that was before the corona carnage started, had a helluva time just finding 45-90 brass in stock anywhere. So basically I am just hunting a good long bearing surface bullet mold in the 450-550 grain range. Probably going to have to get a custom mold for sure as Im not having any luck finding the standard molds. Thanks for the advice!

    Look at the Saeco Postell moulds for your Browning. I used the Saeco 745 for Black Powder Cartridge Silhouette in my Browning Highwall with great success. It weighs about 540 grains. They also make the 645 which weighs about 400 grains. It made a great 200 meter chicken bullet.

    Cast harder lead and size to .460.

    Have fun.

    I found a Saeco .459 500 grain mold today, got it ordered and will try it with 20-1 or do I need to go a littler harder lead?

    I shot silhouette for years with a simple alloy of 3 parts pure lead to one part wheel weights.

    I'm too cheap to buy tin and too disorganized to keep more than a couple of lots of casting metal. I shoot the 3/1 in all of my breechloaders and my smoothbore, and pure lead in all of the other muzzleloaders. I have no issues with leading or fouling which I attribute to my lube recipe.

    Search the board for "bob-o-lene" for my recipe.

    I have a Lyman 457191 that I would be willing to part with if that is of interest to you. It is in like new condition. it has 515 stamped under the mould number and also on the opposing half. Possibly the weight??? I'm not sure, acquired this mould in a box lot and have no use for it.
