Making Super Sonic 338 Spectre Cast Ammo: Part 2 Gas Check, Sizing, & Powder Coating

Short video series of making super sonic 230 gr cast 338 Spectre ammo for my 338 Spectre SBR. 338 bullets are pretty expensive, so I was looking at making some super sonic plinker ammo with some 230 gr cast bullets using my NOE 340-224Gr. FN 4 cavity GC bullet mold. The ammo is short enough to fit inside a 6.8spc magazine and a regular AR15 upper (with a 6.8spc bolt and 338 spectre barrel). The 338 Spectre is kind of like a bigger brother of the 300 blk and uses 10mm magnum brass necked down to .338. I made these bullets with a little harder alloy since I am using them in an AR15 platfrom. Next video I will be loading up these bullets to make the ammo.
