the past few months, I have been using some very high quality
rifle and handgun bullets from Mt. Baldy Bullets located
in beautiful Cody, Wyoming. These bullets are hard cast from
clean premium lead alloy. The casting is done by proprietor Frank
Ehrenford, not on a high capacity bullet machine, but by
have used a few of his long-range competition bullets in a Cimarron
Sharps .45-90 rifle, as well as several of his excellent
Keith style semi-wadcutter bullets in revolvers. Frank’s
bullets are true to the Keith design, having a large square
cornered lube groove and a square cornered bullet base. Most
cast bullets have a bevel base to make them run better on
automated casting and loading machines, but a square base shoots
better and leads the barrel less.
Baldy offers several different designs and weights of bullets,
but all are premium bullets that are designed to perform. I have
found that their composition yields a bullet that is tough, but
not brittle. As can be seen in the pictures, the "hammer
test" proved that while the bullets are hard, they do not
come apart when beaten down with a framing hammer. In my
experience, that means that the bullet will penetrate, without
breaking apart on bone.
accuracy of the Mt. Baldy Keith bullets is outstanding. They
will shoot as well as the gun into which they are loaded. Cheap
bevel base bullets can lead the barrel, adversely affecting
accuracy, but Frank's bullets have proven very accurate in all
guns in which I have tested them.
