FOUND SOME. THANKS, PARDS Some .58 Minie' Bullets


Recommended Posts

Anyone have a few .58 Minie' bullets they could sell me to test a load I am working on for another oddball cartridge? Just need maybe 5 or 6, just to see if I am on the right track.

I have some semi-wadcutter mine balls.  They are pure lead and come out of my mold at about .576.  I can size them down to pretty much any size you need.  I use them in my target musket and I size them to .560.  You can have  the six you need just for the postage.

Nickel City Dude. I can try those, but may be kind of small. I need some that are .585-.590. Original Model 63 Springfield barrel on roller action. Bore is pretty generous, over .610, but hard to measure 3 groove bore. But I can try several. Dantankerous. What diameter are the GP bullets?

.588 is good. What do you want for a few?

If you need bullets that are .580 or larger the ones that I have will not give you very good accuracy.  I can still send them to you but I think they are too small for your barrel.
