Which brand makes 185 grain lead SWC HP?

Post by kayakingsteve on 12/2/2018, 7:04 pm

Just started shooting and reloading for bullseye. One of the veterans at the last shoot had 185 grain lead cast SWC hollow points he said he was loading with 3.7 grains of bullseye, I think. I heard the brand but it went in one ear and out the other and cannot find it now. Can anyone tell me who makes them? These weren't jacketed, just cast bullets.

Searched through the forum but can't find it, sorry if it's been posted before

ZERO has a quality 185 LSWCHP. It is their catalog #186 bullet. I believe it is swaged, not cast.

Just curious what benefit does the hollow point provide on a lead bullet vs regular swc ?

When compared to a non hollow point 185, the  Zero hollow point bullet has a longer bearing surface. It looks like a 200 grain bullet with a hollow point that brings the weight down to 185.

They use a dry powder type lube that’s why their bullets look like that. 
Not sure it works as good as regular lube because they lead my barrel more than Zeros.

Try coating them with 45-45-10. I do this with the Zero's.

Does Magnus really make them,  or are they selling repackaged Zero's? IMO the Magnus and Zero look identical.

not to speak for Magnus, but, I believe he uses Magma bullet casting equipment to make the same bullet configuration.

and, he supports this site.

On the Magnus website the 185 SWCHP is advertised as being swaged, not cast.
