BA1103 Dixie Cast Minie Bullet .575 Reviews
Product: BA1103 Dixie Cast Minie Bullet .575 BA1103 Dixie Cast Minie Bullet .575
From: Ryan Fey

Review:

Excellent product. Well cast bullets with average mic'd diameter and skirt thickness that are both correct. Minor variances and miniscule abnormalities that are found with ANY hand cast bullet. As such, a few may need a little more "thumb" to start in the barrel. If one needs perfection, then running them through a sizer would be recommended. They come bare, so lubricate them by dipping tail-first in a 1:1 mixture of molten beeswax and crisco to cover all three grooves. Ogive of bullet is actually period correct rather than what is suggested by pictures. No problems obturating into the rifling and stabilizing with a 60-65 grain FFg charge in a Pedersoli M1861 Springfield.
