By default, all length dimensions are calculated to the nearest 0.001 inch.
Check the Optional check box to calculate all length dimensions to the nearest  0.005 inch.

Starting at # 1, Enter an optimal muzzle velocity and then, using the keyboard's TAB key,  step through the fields and select options to calculate the critical bullet dimensions.



If the chamber neck diameter is small in comparison to the groove diameter and cartridge neck thickness values, this message will appear, suggesting the various options to use with the bullet design




The software initially designs a bullet with the in-case length equal to the cartridge neck length.
If the selected cartridge has no neck length value or a very short neck the resulting design would have no or a very short bearing length. The message offers options that result in a bullet designed with adequate bearing length. 



Send the critical dimensions to the  Bullet Drawing module.

If the user has both the Cast Bullet Design ~ Basic and the Cast Bullet Design ~ Advanced module, certain designs may first be drawn in the more simple Basic module and then later edited and refined in the Advanced module

Draw the bullet to scale and save to the appropriate folder in the  Chamber Pics folder.
