Loading Hollow Base Bullets
Posted by David Gibbens on Thursday, 16 January 2014, at 4:21 p.m.
I am going to have to purchase a 405gr mold & was wondering about a hollow base bullet.
I have always shot lyman's 500gr round nose govt in my 45 cal. trapdoors; black powder, veggie wads, compression, etc. However, I have 2 Winchester Hotchkiss that I've never shot & they require the 405 to feed.
My question is about loading the hollow base. Does not seem that wads and compression would lend themselves to a hollow base. The Minie ball for muzzle loaders comes to mind - pour in enough powder then set the bullet to OAL???
Anyone have any experience with this?
