Looking for the shell cutter and reloaded for the 475 Mag Wildey bullet. Do you have a set or know where I can get a set?

This is one gun, more than most, that needs researching BEFORE you purchase.

Google the 475, you may wind up selling the gun. If you are determined, ammo can be crafted for this arm. Start up cost will be high.

The 460 Smith wheelgun will have better ballistics, and much easier ammo availability. The 500 Smith wheelgun will vastly out perform it.

Stuck on an auto pistol? The Desert Eagle 50 is easier and cheaper to load for, gives good ballistics, despite the aforementioned revolvers being a better deal, more practical, and more accurate.

Not so sure about that Desert Eagle accuracy problem!
40 yes offhand first time I shot it
The holes are from 300 grain 50AE
5 shots and 4 1/2 holes ! 3/8" plate

The 50AE is a hoot to shoot, but bullet style, combined with relatively low velocity, gives a rainbow trajectory. The revolvers will shoot with a lot of rifles up to 100 yds.

Also, for a reloader, the Desert Eagle throws precious brass away!

If the 44 and 454 don't do it for you, the 460 is the way to go. Most 454's are light for caliber and kick your head off.

The Wildey is a neat pistol. It does not have the power of the 460 or the 500 but it is a great carry unit.

The loss of the company leaves a bit of desire to be had.

Reloading supplies would be fun to mess with.
