It has been such a long time ago since I cast lead... I kind of remember it being fun. hahaha...
You certainly have some cleanly cast ammo there.

Well, done. Do you ever cast into different shapes... for example, Hexagonal rods?

I'd be interested in buying or trading for a few of those. Small caliber ones. They shred cans and bust jugs.

I do not hunt any more, but those would go great in a go-bag or hunting kit for some of our more active huntera.

I've not cast any different shapes just yet, but I'm intrigued.

I'll do some swapping, what you got and how many of the .445s do you want?

I've definitely got the .44 bug. My go to ammo. I first ran into a bunch for cheap at a gun show. Then started trading Luck over Skill for it.
His is really clean like yours. Great ammo.

kcherry, welcome to the forum. I have never shot .56 cal lead. What bands do you use? Is that double TBG,or maybe GZK? Just curious I have been experimenting with different cuts and thickness for my ,44s

So those bands are double TBG at 24x18x170. Here's some chrono numbers. I shoot about 29 inch draw length.

44 lead: 210 FPS
58 lead: 164 FPS

I've not chrono'd the 56 yet, but should be about 170 FPS or so.

By the way 20x15x170 TBG is about 17lb vs 24lb draw weight.

That is moving pretty good for that much weight. I would have never guessed that 4 mm would give you an extra 7 lb of draw. I guess times 4 it adds up quick.

Plus they are doubles, so I'm not sure if the math works out, but could be like 8mm total add.
