In general, 54 cal muzzleloader bullets are typically designed for use with black powder firearms and are generally larger and heavier than traditional bullets designed for use with modern firearms. As a result, 54 cal muzzleloader bullets typically have a higher muzzle velocity and are more effective at penetrating targets than traditional bullets.

COLLET #3. 243cal – Hornady 392156 The Hornady Cam-Lock Bullet Puller is one of the fastest and easiest ways to pull bullets with a reloading press. Collets are the part of the system that clamp to the bullet so it can be removed quickly and easily.
Not only is this a very good tool for the Hornady Bullet Puller with the 338/358 (9 mm), it works great to pull semiwadcutter (SWC) 45acp bullets. Unfortunately I made a low powder load (mistake) with some 10 SWC 45acp and I could not get the bullet out with the “hammer like” pullet puller tool (if you reload you know about that tool).
I didn’t want to lose these so I carefully thought about trying the 9mm collet. It worked beautifully! Yes, one has to change the shell holder (need #2 verses #19). This tool has helped me recover primers and bullets from duds too.
A definite plus to have if one reloads. Obviously the other collets I have all work great too. Thank you Hornady!.
Works great! I had to dismantle about 1200 rounds of. 223 and this made short work of it. I started with an impact/inertia puller and after about 200 rounds of smacking that thing on the ground, I figured there had to be a better way.
Well this is far and away that better way. I will be buying the collets for my other calibers as well now that I am spoiled by this thing. I’ll never go back to the old way!.
MUZZLELOADING FUN. No more banged-up knuckles or pinched fingers. The CVA Knuckle-Saver Bullet Starter’s unique starting rod stops downward momentum before your fingers strike the muzzle. Built-in palm saver for added protection.
The Forster Collet-Style Bullet Puller grasps the bullet firmly and will not slip. In fact, the pull from the loading press actually tightens the grip on the bullet as it is removed. This reduces the chance of damage to the brass or bullet.
The carefully constructed, solid steel collet is the feature that distinguishes this puller from others on the market. Forster Collets sold separately. Fits: Most Presses with 7/8-14 threads, will not work with the Forster Co-Ax Single Stage Press Notes: Not and inertia type bullet puller, this bullet puller will now accommodate the WSM and WSSM length cartridges Not for use with lead bullets SKU – 41930312345.
I hate to brake down loaded rounds. Makes me feel stupid. For one reason or another not thinking ahead. This takes the sting out of it. Works Great !! Beats the old hammer ten times over. Very well made and preforms perfect.
I won’t write about the collet as the two go together. Function still excellent. If you are new to Midsouth they get Five Stars Plus.
Lee machines their mold blocks from aluminum making them rust resistant. Aluminum molds heat up and cool down faster than iron or steel molds and good bullets can usually be produced only after a few casts.
In addition aluminum blocks are one-third the weight of iron or steel mold blocks offering the bullet caster less fatigue during extended casting sessions. To ensure the best possible bullets mold block halves are CNC machined for unmatched roundness and size control.
Weights given are Lees weights with suggested alloy; actual weight may vary due to the alloy mixture used. Lee Precision does not recommend the use of any spray type mold release products in their bullet molds.
The use of such products may result in a build-up of the release product in the bullet mold cavity reducing the diameter of the bullets cast from the treated mold. Instead Lee Precision recommends smoking the mold with a wooden match beeswax candle or a butane lighter as described in their provided bullet mold instructions.
this mold is very handy, I had been looking for 54 caliber bullets for my muzzle loading rifle, the only thing that was available in stores was 50 cal. , I bought this mold ignorer to cast my own bullets.
The Lee Precision #4 Buckshot 18 Cavity Bullet Mold easily casts thousands of pellets per hour. Mold and blocks have steel bushing and alignment pins for lasting precision. See instructions on Reducing Exposure supplied with product.
I could not get a full pour without having to remelt at least 4 out of six cavities. i ended up just using the end cavity and it worked flawless,poured about 1500 in a couple of hours. If I had it to do over,I would get a smaller mold.
This mold stacks 3 balls in each cavity and the hole between the balls are very small and I feel like that’s why it’s hard to cast with the mold cools down to quick.
I’ve used Lee molds for a number of years and I’ve always had good success with every one of them. That’s why I chose this mold for 00 buckshot. Unfortunately, I’ve had difficulty mastering this particular mold.
I just can’t seem to get the thing hot enough across the entire mold. One end is fine and the other end is not sufficiently hot to cast a good buckshot. I just haven’t mastered this product yet. In fact, I gave up the casting session in frustration because of the uneven heating.
I never did manage to cast an entire line of properly sized buckshot. I know I’m doing something wrong but I haven’t quite figured it out. When I muster enough courage I’ll give it another try. But not today.
I felt a little cheated when I opened the box and the mold handles are not included. The photo of the product shows the mold complete with handles. MidSouth needs to change the photo and note that Lee Molds no longer come complete with handles.
This mold is well made and produces excellent bullets from the start. The bullets produced are semi-wad cutter type for target use in. 45 ACP. They could also be used to load some. 45 revolver cartridges.
The beveled base of the bullet makes it easy to load into the case.
There are many types of 54 cal muzzleloader bullets, but they all have one common goal: to provide the best possible accuracy and performance. There are lead bullets, copper bullets, and even plastic bullets.
Each type of bullet has its own benefits and drawbacks, so it’s important to choose the right type of bullet for your needs.
Lead bullets are the most common type of 54 cal muzzleloader bullet. They are inexpensive and easy to find. Lead bullets are also easy to cast, so they are a good choice for beginners. However, lead bullets can be difficult to load and can lead to fouling in your muzzleloader.
Copper bullets are more expensive than lead bullets, but they offer a number of benefits. Copper bullets are easier to load than lead bullets, and they are less likely to cause fouling in your muzzleloader.
Copper bullets also expand more on impact, so they are a good choice for hunting.
Plastic bullets are the most expensive type of 54 cal muzzleloader bullet, but they offer a number of benefits. Plastic bullets are easy to load and are less likely to cause fouling in your muzzleloader.
Plastic bullets also expand more on impact, so they are a good choice for hunting.
