Default .19 cal bullets

Hello everyone, I've been looking through this forum for a bit now and just signed up. I have a 19 badger and was wanting to know what it would take to make the .19 cal bullets from .20 cal bullets. James makes some very nice products but I'm not a fan of the bullet coating used. To me it seems thick and when it builds up in the barrel it seems gummy.....this is only MY opinion.

Thanks for your time.

Charlie

I'd like to know what it would take too, just in case he ever quits making them AND it would be nice to have more choices for accuracy and fur friendliness than just his double HP's.

Bill West was the first person I heard of sizing the bullets down and then RicN did a lot of work developing a system. Maybe he'll see this if not try PMing Ric.

CMATERA,
Have you tried the newer 32 ST (Nosler) bullets-they perform very well!
The bullet coating I think, is a Zink derivative-I have not had a "gumming" issue in barrels. I use AA1680- I know James prefers the AA2200, now, but I just can't believe I could get any better performance than I get now with the 1680.
Plus, I have too much of it to buy more/different powder! The powder residue is very black, but cleans easily.
Bill

No, I have not tried the 32 ST but I will. I like the AA1680 too. I have about 8 or 10# of it. The dirtiness doesn't bother me either. It cleans up very easily. I do also shoot some Vit N120 and have about 6 or 8# of it as well. It burns pretty clean.

Default You can buy a swaging die...

I believe Corbin makes them,they take the 20 cals down to 19 cal.
Pretty sure James starts with the 32grn Nosler to make his Sabre tips.
I remember way back when James was considering making these
poly tip bullets his biggest hurdle was finding dies to make the little tips.
I'm glad he is doing this for us I for one like the polys with their better bc.

Does anyone know the bc of J.Calhoons bullets?
I'm using a 19fb with R7 and H4198. Barrel has over 150 rounds down and still gets fouled after only a few shots.
Thanks,Ken.

Default Corbin

Look around on Dave Corbin's site. I believe he has a lot of information free for downloading that will provide hours of reading.

Good luck,
Gary

17VLD has it right. Corbin makes a bullet reducing die to do this. Go to the link here and go to the bullet draw die section. You can get them to fit a normal reloading press. You just push the bullet though a correctly sized ring die.
