cast bullets for 45 colt+p and 454 cassul

I've been looking for loads for my new 454 carbine and noted a dude was loading kieth style casts for his in 45 brass . Seems to me they would lead the barrel . I have both moly coated bear creek black bear casts and miester hard cast with grease rings. They do OK for +p 45 colt going 12 or 1300 . Any one know if they will really be ok at 2000+ ? I see some companies say 3000 fps for theirs .

I use a 308gr lead bullet with gas check on top of H110 at 1750fps.
This load is very accurate in my Ruger and I have not had any problem with the barrel leading. This is not a gun I shoot 100's of rounds a week.

Wow . I can only assume your ruger is a rifle or a cassul pistol . Any thing aproaching 20 grn h110 with a 250 grn bullet really starts some elbow shock in my 7 1/2 '' Vaquero . 308 is a big bullet to go 1750 . I'll study up on the gas check deal . Thanks

You are correct. I am shooting a Ruger Super Redhawk with a 7 1/2" barrel

For heavy .45 cal loads I always had good luck with Oregon Trails Laser cast bullets. They have a 2% real silver added to the alloy making them exceptionally hard and have never had any leading in the barrel with them.

You can push a gas check lead bullet to the same velocities as jacketed slugs. The gas check protects the base from melting and that is where the high velocity leading comes from if the bullets are properly sized.
