That is very cool. Where I live I can't have any of those carbines, I think they are all very cool. 45 is awesome especially when you cast your own. How much BETTER if it is from a MOLD YOU DESIGNED. Totally COOL.

I've had my Hi Point 45 ACP carbine for around 2 years now, it's one of my favorite guns to shoot and it's always a hit at the local group shoots, Hi Point made a few sales off those group shoots.

Two of my favorite bullets to shoot in the Hi Point as well as my Ruger P-90 in 45 ACP are the Lee 200 gr. SWC and the NOE 452-234 TL bullet that comes with FN, HP an cup point pins. I'm pretty much just casting HP's and cup point bullets with the NOE mold. I get equal accuracy with both the Lee and NOE bullets cast from 50/50 and powder coated.

I get good expansion with the NOE HP bullet as well.

Very nice, thanks for the report! Kind of hoping NOE would have had a sale email for the weekend but he didn't.

Try this coupon code and see if it still works flt001 I think it worth 5% if it's still valid.

Thank you, but too late. I went ahead and bought it full price as Al has done so much for me, and I know sales are slow this time of year, that it is worth supporting him.

I have the NOE design software database, so I moved the bullet design to my software and then imported the record to my Precision Reloading Records and QuickLoad. It looks like I will keep using the same Hercules Unique load of 6.5-grains so all I need to do with the Load-Master is switch the Carbide Sizing and Factory Crimp dies out when I switch between the Hi-Point rifle (standard dies) and Taurus pistol (oversize dies).

I was able to shoot the 4595TLS yesterday, what a hoot and darn if it isn't a 6" gong ringer at 50-yards! This rifle was set up by my FFL with the Bushnell First Strike sight rather than the BSA red dot that Hi-Point offers. Much neater package. I was shooting Independence ammo and went through it surprisingly quick.

My NOE mold arrived at the end of the week, so I need to get busy if I want to shoot it some more!

Oh, already have two 20-round magazines and a speed loader on the way from Hi-Point!

If you don't mind , what's HP get for the high cap mags ?

I think the 14 round Pro Mags were only $16-17 bucks , I think there was a sale or something .

$28 each. I looked at Pro Mags online, $21 to $26. Honestly, I've tried Pro Mags with a number of firearms and after buying three SMLE mags, said never again.

Ok .
I read that about an hour after I ordered 4 ....... I've run all 4 but one of them about 15 cycles with no bugs .
I read about the pro mags but I've had good luck with them where I couldn't get factory or they were really expensive .
