I have been working with Al Nelson at NOE Moulds to increase the number of pellet moulds available so that airgunners can cast their own pellets, reducing the cost per shot.... These designs are based on the successful .25 and .30 cal moulds that NOE already have available, with a round-nosed design with a 60% meplat that makes the pellet hit harder, and is required for the nose-pour style moulds that NOE is producing.... They are using their proven "RG" pin system to provide three different depths of base cavity so that you can fine tune the weight and CG location for what works best in your gun.... As part of this major entry into supplying Diabolo style (waisted) pellets, NOE have decided to name the pellets to make their use clear.... The existing .25 and .30 cal moulds, because they were designed at the heavy end of the spectrum within each caliber will be called "Magnum Hunter" pellets, and that series will now be expanded to cover .22, .35 and .45 calibers.... There were requests for shorter, lighter pellets in .25 and .30 cal, and that will be available in the new "Hunter" series, covering those calibers, plus .22 cal as well.... In addition, a .22 cal Wadcutter design will complete the line-up, dubbed a "Target" pellet....

First of all, here are the two existing designs, currently available in the NOE Online Store....

Here are the new lighter weight offerings in these two calibers....

Image

Image

and here are the new .35 and .45 cal designs.... It is planned to offer the .45 cal in 0.452" and 0.457" head diameters....

Image

Image

Finally, here is the new .22 cal line-up of NOE pellets....

Image

Image

Image

As I understand it, Al plans to produce these designs ASAP and place the moulds in the store without using Group Buys.... This will reduce the time required for the new pellets to proceed through the NOE system.... I will of course keep you informed as each new pellet mould is ready for purchase....

I just got off the phone with Al, and he asked me to supply him with drawings for .25 cal and .30 cal Target pellets, similar to what I did above in .22 cal (based on the Hunter design but a wadcutter).... Looks like he is really committed to producing a variety of moulds for airgun pellets.... 8)

Hi Bob.

I am interested in both .22 target pellets and .22 hunter pellets molds.

I cannot find the target pellets on their site and I don't know how to get the discount for the members of the forum.

Please can you clarify how to get the code and can you provide links to the both appropriate products.

Thanks.

Thanks for the info, Bob.

I will try to get in touch with the Company.

I also check the dimensions on the drawings for the .22s, will they fit most of the .22 airguns?

The head dimension is not shown, a glitch in NOEs drafting program.... but it is 0.217" for the .22 cal and 0.250" for the .25 cal.... The skirt dimensions are 0.007" larger, as shown on the drawings.... These are virtually identical to what JSB uses....

I have never had any comment about chambering problems, and all the Magnum Hunter pellets (the only ones that have been cast and shot so far) are producing good results....

Hi Bob.

Did you hear of any progress on the .22 pellet molds?

I am looking for the wadcutter and the light hunter.

Thanks.

If you havne't seen one of these moulds, I'd like to advise that they are the most beautifully made moulds on the market
and I have a bunch of different makes, calibres and styles - totally 82 moulds or mould blocks by count, for rifles, handguns
and shotguns, and from .224" to .740".
These NOW moulds are really nicely made and quite inexpensive as well, for what you get.

The .22 cal Hunter (20-23 gr.) and Target (17-20 gr.) pellets are next up, they are machining the tooling and hope to run the moulds next week....
