The stock T/C .32-20 10" barrel shown with 110gr .308 HP Varmint bullets over a healthy dose of H110.

The 411-JDJ Wrist Wrencher shown with 340gr PBFP bullets cast from Accurate Mold 410340K. This one is a real beast.

Let's see some pics of your T/C pistols!

Back in the '80's when handgun silhouette was getting wound-up, we had Thirsday afternoon practice sessions, shooting @ swinger targets. One of our shooters came with an original 10 1/2" TC chambered in 444 Marlin. He had some loaded rounds (jacketed bullets) and said he needed some of us to "help" fire-form his brass. Everyone shot (5) rounds.....and evryone drew blood.....what fun! No one asked to shoot another 5-rounds.

Aaron, I admire a man who can mitigate recoil.

That's a beautiful pair of setups.

Are those both the same cast bullet?

What's the grain weight?

You pour nice lead, sir.

Thanks,

Jimmy

Jimmy,

The 375-JDJ shoots a Accurate Mold 376265D bullet at 1700fps. It is one of my top performing, game getting calibers. I cast with Lyman #2 alloy and depend on pure penetration to go through the boiler room (end-to-end) so to speak. Recoil on the 375-JDJ is stiff but manageable.

The 411-JDJ is usually fired with the NEI 275411-SSK bullet at 1700fps but I have experimented with a 340gr bullet. The Accurate Mold 410340J and 410340K molds were used for load development. Truthfully, the recoil with these bullets was punishing in the T/C platform.

These two barrels are my "anything on earth" barrels and of late, I have been shooting tamer barrels. My most recent is the 38-55 barrel. While recoil is brisk in it, it is nowhere near the potential recoil of the SSK large caliber barrels. As you probably know, the recoil in the T/C platform is quite different than say, a Freedom Arms 454 Casull. In the T/C platform, the recoil is more linear to the rear, but in the revolver, it slips down into the palm if gripped properly. The 454 Casull is actually less punishing if your grip is correct (with wood slick grips - not Pachmayr grips).

For some reason, the cast bullets for both the 375 and the 411 always cast well, with no voids and very uniform weight. It's just one of those mysteries of the silver stream. cool

With rifle in hand, I confidently go forth into the darkness.

I have a few of those TC’s. Would you shoot a cast Bullet match if a class existed ? 100 & 200. Yard bench event.

You're killing me Shootcast! More ideas I don't have time for right now! 15 more months until retirement, I can't wait to have more time!

Maybe a T/C Contender/Encore handgun only match immediately following our regular benchrest matches at Tamaqua? Would probably have to shoot less targets to fit it in, especially for you guys with long rides. I never shot cast out of my 7-30 Waters, I guess a 7mm mould is in my future now!
