Are there any Aussies here that cast their own bullets? Would like to hear from you.
Yup, I cast round ball in 301, 308 and 310 cal and bullets for my 45 cal bp Cartridge rifles in 458 cal. I do it in my back yard using gas and casting pot and shroud made by Northern Smelters in Qld. Pure lead for the RB and 20-1 tin for the bullets.. Gary

What part of the country are you from? Haven't heard of northern smelters will look them up.

In Vic, near the SA border. Still trying to find someone close to me in the hopes of gleaning information from more experienced hands.

Do you hunt with your BP or just targets?

Just target. I shoot a Thompson Centre .36 cal Seneca in precision events at Tuggerah Lakes Pistol Club. ML’s are the only rifles that may be shot at the club. We shoot at the standard 25yd pistol target. I also shoot my TC patriot in .45 cal and my Le Page .31 cal pistols there in competition. I am also a member of the Central Coast Muzzle loading (etc) Club at Kariong and shoot at their annual Rendevoux also mt long range BP cartridge rifles there but that’s a whole other story. Anything I can do to help you just ask

Not real close to you, but there is quite a thriving muzzleloading community in S.A. within the S.S.A.A. Many members of the Australian Muzzleloading Team hail from the Adelaide area. There are three clubs in Adelaide (Para, Castambul, & Southern Rangers), & another in Monarto (near Murray Bridge), but there may be more that I'm not aware of as I left the area thirty years ago. If you like, send me a message & I'll give you some contact emails.
