Dardas Bullet Company up for sale:

Post by Gary Wells on Sun Jun 17, 2018 11:02 am

First topic message reminder :

I don't know if you guys have heard it yet or seen threads on other forums on this but it is posted up on "The Firing Line" I believe. I will miss dealing with Matt for sure. Hopefully whoever buys it does not change anything, like getting of their cast H&G#130 "button bullet". Not a lot of companies making that bullet now.

I know nothing of this caster, but thought I would throw this into the discussion.

I'm curious. What's being gained by using this little bullet. Is the recoil less than a 200 with a very light load? Seems to me that with the increase in powder necessary to cycle the gun, it would be a wash.

James:
I did not state that there is anything wrong with the Magnus # 801, nor am I now. Probably 1 of the top 4 or 5 bullets chosen by the B/E shooters. However IMHO, it might be similar to the H&G#130, but the configuration is not identical. The H&G#130 has a sharper & more pronounced shoulder, & cuts a rounder more distinct hole that the #801. YMMV. Also the sharper vision of the shooter, the less important the sharper bullet hole. And i am sure that you can shoot. What you group at 50 yds, I can't do at 21 ft. Mostly due to the loss of 3 toes & the major portion of my left foot, glaucoma obliterating my right dominant eye forcing me to move the dominant eye from the right eye to the left eye. My balance, both forward & backwards & right & left is hindered also.

Probably nothing. Although I can keep velocity at 230 GR speeds with a lot less felt recoil.

No disagreement Gary.

That's a very astute observation, James. Have you ever compared that to the felt recoil of the 160gr bullets? I don't do felt recoil very well myself && that is 1 of the reasons that I have shot the H&G#130 185 gr for about the last 30 yrs or so.

Um, yes Gary. I currently shoot the 160's.
I have also shot Magnus #801, #811,#814.

I like the recoil Dynamics of the 160 better.
Strictly subjective of course.

This is in a Clark Heavy Optic 1911 with a matchdot II slide mount.

That’s why I’m liking the 160s as well.  Different kind of recoil and I seem to get back on target faster.  I have no clue why either.  But, if ya shoot it good and it makes ya happy..well then shoot it right.

I cast my own and have a wonderful friend who makes these for himself and he’s sent me some.  I’m going to have to break down and get the same mold as he has and start the process of making a butt load!

James: What bullet & who's the manufacture? Many thanks for the info above.
