CC Mountain Man Cast Bullets
« on: October 28, 2013, 05:06:48 AM »

I ordered some cast round balls from CC Mountain Man

ccmountainman@gmail.com

I don't think he has a website but if you email him and tell him what you want you can agree on a price. From what I understand he sells various cast  revolver bullets for cap and ball revolvers as well as round balls. I ordered 400 .380 round balls.

Price: The 400 bullets were half what the comparable would have been from Cabelas when you include shipping and that's the sale price from Cabelas (if they even have them in stock). We priced them based on what would fit in a flat rate box.

Packing: I received two bags of about 200 each inside another bag wrapped in newspaper and fit into a flat rate box so all I could expect.

Timeliness: I sent the money order off on a Saturday and received them the following Saturday

Quality: They look really good very well cast and shiny even not frosted or wrinkled.

Communication: He does emails morning and evenings and answers quickly.

I will definitely buy from him again. I am setting up to cast my own but all my molds are 36 and I have a 44 Walker coming I want to try different loads in so I will probably get some different bullets from him for the 44 soon. If you want to try 100 or so of something before buying your own mold or just don't want to cast your own he is the best deal I have seen so far

Indeed!

I've bought .490" RB's, .50 cal 320 grn REALs, .45 cal 195 grn SWC's custom made to work in a cap n ball pistol, and a small trial of Lee 200 grn RN conicals to see if in a pinch they'd work in my Ruger (nope - he was right).

As you suggested I want to see if REALs work through my rifle before I buy a mold.

He sells many other things as well. I have a package on the way with a leather holster/belt/pouch, as well as a bronze bristle brush (toothbrush type) and a .50 cal bore mop.

He did some custom touches to the leather work.

All of that for $83.11, which includes shipping.

I'd certainly recommend his services to anyone in need of supplies.

Me too. Here are the weights on 105 nominally 195 grain .44 cal percussion revolver bullets I got from him. Highly Recommended!

I'm curious why they are set in separate groupings.

A visual depiction of how many in each weight group.

But why 0-9?

195.0 grains to 195.9 grains. The next increment would be 196.0 grains. The previous page would have ended in 194.9 grains. I wished to give everyone a visual representation of the weight distribution of the projectiles I received without creating a chart.
