This book should be titled "Various Bullet Casting Molds I have used for 45-70 Black Powder Cartridge Rifles" by Paul Matthews.Buy this book if you are interested in or new to BPCR and want to learn about some of standard mold/bullet designs out there for the 45-70 rifle. (See list of molds below)Don't buy this book if you expect to glean some of Mr. Matthews significant expertise into "Casting" bullets or Black Powder Cartridge Rifle competition -- as this is NOT the focus of the book.1. It is about his experiences with CAST Bullets from specific bullet molds, not about the actual process of CASTING Bullets....2. It discusses several bullet molds Mr. Matthews used for competition with various 45-70 Black Powder Cartridge Rifles. He briefly touches on a long range 38 and 40 caliber BPCR caliber as well.Main emphasis of the book, These molds:A. The Lyman 457125 -- 45-70 "Government Ball" and custom copiesB.

It only *BRIEFLY* discusses:Using Paper patched bulletsCasting your own bulletsMold selection/prepSelecting the right bullet for the rifleLoad developmentFitting those bullets to your rifle.
I've shot cast bullets in an 1873 Trapdoor rifle thru trial and error years ago and I am going to get back into shooting black powder cartridge rifles so I've started to do some researching before I purchase any rifles. This book identifies the molds that have worked for the author and from what I've learned, his information is sound and based on a long history of firing BPCR loads for competition and hunting. Good information, the book isn't long enough for an in depth discussion on each mold and the processes, but it certainly gives more than enough to get started and will be a valuable reference to keep handy on the loading bench.
Covers the basics very well. Give insight to the history and development of BP loading. Overall, A good read for those who are just getting into BP in single shot rifles. Be aware that shooting BP can become an active addicition.
this book is all you want to know about casting bullet for obtain better accuracy of your rifle and material
This book is just what I needed. It explains everything you need to know about working with casting bullets. Check it out! Its a great book!
