    Just got my stainless Fusion Pro Series 10mm Back from Fusion. I had them mill the slide for a plate and mount a Holosun sight and refinish the slide in Black Shield. Can’t wait to shoot it and see how the sight holds up.

    Very nice! That looks great. What are you going to feed it?

    I've not shot that ammo, but did handload that same DT bullet when it was available as a component. I can say it is a hammer!

    Here is a pic of the DT bullet on the right. The one second to the right is a Beartooth. The others are my own cast from an LBT mold. All 10mm WFN bullets.

    I have been casting for my .480 Ruger and all my Sharps BPCR bullets so I guess I need to get a WFN for my 10mm

    Agreed!!

    I thought, if getting an "LBT style" why not ger the original. So I ordered a 4 cav from LBT. Could not be happier with the way it casts. I had one cavity cut for a gas check, but on hindsight the GC is not needed. I powder coat mine and run them up over 1250 fps in the G20.

    Accurate sells a similar profile: the 40-195G. Tom at Accurate would probably get it to you quicker than LBT.

    I love this gun! It is a great gun, reliable and accurate. The mount is rock solid and the Black Shield finish is first rate
