BTW I get much better accuracy with cast bullets than the copper condoned bullets.


Same here, but i did have a Russian target model that was super accurate with anything i fed it. It did have a tight chamber/throat though.

The mold is a reality and if results are positive and ranchdog gets enough requests for it he will produce it.

I'm not sure... i guess you could email him from his website. I think he will probably take requests on the castboolits forum if the results are good.

I came here to post this, but i see you've beat me to it. Ranchdog made a slight change to the ogive (tangent to secant) to allow better feeding in some pistols, but i never experienced a single problem with the tangent in a true makarov.

Myself I just trim down 9mm luger. I have bought Mak brass before from midway (starline was the brand I believe).
I mark the mak brass on the bottom with a sharpie after they are loaded to tell them apart at the range from my luger and other peoples brass. Itworks.

Oh I almost forgot, I have to run the luger brass thru the mak expanding die for the trimmer to fit inside the case. I then trim to size, resize to 9 mak, and check OAL.

GTG after that.

I just buy Mak brass so I can shoot, reload, shoot. Would rather have the right brass w/o the fuss of making it. :lol:

It IS The Right brass if you make it!
And once you have the cutter on your electric drill...It's FREE.
9mm range brass is all over the range for the the taking.

I didn't mean to insinuate that it wasn't the right brass. I also make "proper" brass for other calibers. It was just a comment about shooting. Sorry if I ruffled your feathers. :P
