Big Bore Ammo Coming from New Casting Machine Soon
« on: December 12, 2017, 09:14:24 PM »
I ordered a new casting machine that is not on the market yet.  It is built by the same guys who build my other two machines but this one is a beta and I will be their field tester.  I have already put a deposit on a new machine but I will be able to keep this one until I get my machine delivered.  My job is to find defects in this machine so they can change it before it goes into full production.  Production will not be until summer or fall with a hefty 12-15K price tag.  When you add the cost of molds to it (it holds six of the same mold at a time) it gets to a point where I hope people like my slugs :).

This machine is really nice and has some huge improvements to the other two machines I use now.  The bullet quality is very similar to hand cast bullets and the speed is incredible.  This will not effect my swage bullets other than this machine will make the core blanks I use to swage bullets with.  I will be investing more money into more cast slug molds as well as bringing some back that I used to sell.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.
