I just got my Jim Brockman Master Guide gun this weekend and put 10 rounds thru it monday,I'm going to love working with this gun! Upon inspecting the Ballard style bore I can see tool marks,Something new to me from being used to Kreiger target rifle barrels.  I have 100 Rem. 405 gr soft points that I got cheap at the gun shop and am planning on useing them to get familiar with the gun and smooth it out a bit,but have decided to lap it after that and use only cast.  I have a mold being cut by NEI for sizing to .460.  Can I use bullets as cast no sizing from wheel weights as my casting slugs?   KevinNY

Yes, I would say that you will do nicely with the NEI mold for making your lapping bullets.  Air cooled wheel-weights will make lapping bullets of a BHN 10-12 which are just fine for the purpose.  

You'll see a marked improvement in performance after lapping I'm sure, and probably near elimination of jacket and lead fouling!

Enjoy that new rifle!

God Bless,

Kevin,

Seat those bullets to look almost like wadcutters, with all of the bearing surface contained within the case, on top of 4.5-5.0g Red Dot and any primer.... this should get you into the right velocity range, adjust as necessary for your gun and bullet combo!

Happy lapping!

God Bless,

Marshall
