Default Casting for me ?

I am looking for someone to cast me some bullets .
I bought a Encore Barrel and it came with a brand new RCBS die,sizer and gas-checks. It is in 416 Rigby caliber. I have since bought a Ruger #1 too.
I would like to send the stuff to you, have you do the casting and sizing and
gas-check installation, and ship back to me.
I will of course pay you whatever is fair .
Any volunteers ? I just want to shoot the Rigby more, and am not interested in learning casting, I used to do it with my dad, but my lead levels are already too high and I prefer not to take chances. I have been told that if you know what you are doing it is safe , but I don't !
Please email me chamrin@comcast.net if interested

A mold for the 416 probably isn't a common item, so I'd think the odds are against you on this project.

Beartooth bullets can supply you with great cast GC bullets. I have bought several hundred from them in the past for my .404 Jeffery.

Default Cast for me ?

I guess I was not clear enough here .
I should have said I have the RCBS Mould !
and the sizing die and the gas checks and everything that is caliber specific !
I am hoping that someone else who casts wants to share this with me , needs bullets too.
Or just wants to cast for me. I will gladly pay. I have just loaded some
Beartooth bullets, they will work fine, but I have all this stuff, it just seems like I should use it.
Thanks
chris

I was in the same situation that you are in, I succeeded in finding an individual to cast bullets with a mold that I provided him. Unfortunately he had a heart attack a while ago and was forced to give up casting. Persevere with your ad like you are doing and eventually you should find someone to help. I would suggest that you post it in the cast bullet forum "Cast Boolits" you may get a faster response from a group made up primarily of those who cast their own bullets. Good Luck.

Well, it's a long ways away, but there is a fellow here in Montana, who has cast a lot of bullets for me, with my bullet molds.

Ben Forkin(Forkin Custom Classics)
(406) 547-2344

I can't guarantee that he still does it. He's a first class single action gunsmith also.
