Cheycast bullets BP Lube

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used cheycast bullets with their bp lube? 

How is the fouling in the long guns using these?
thanks

Last time I bought any they were lubed with SPG, the best there is, but the bullet design doesn't really carry enough of it to completely avoid some hard fouling buildup up toward the muzzle.  Easy enough to deal with by swabbing the bore every couple or three stages, but can't really be ignored.

They say they're using their own BP lube. Wanting to get some .401's.

Going to start shooting Classic, Classic Cowboy. All ammo BP :D

When I did that I called it Ultra Classic Cowboy.

The only bullets I've found that carry enough lube for a rifle are Big Lubes. Contact Springfield Slim, he makes all kinds.

A bullet with a "standard" lube groove will leave hard fouling in the last several inches. Maybe a 16" barrel would be OK but mine aren't.

I use the big lube bullets for the rifle (24" barrel) and Missouri BP or Cheycast BP for the revolvers (5.5" barrel). No leading problems.

If Evil Roy endorses and uses CheyCast - why even ask if the bullets are good

As for fouling I wouldn't worry about it because foul is black powder residue
