View Full Version : Some got their molds

But not me - not yet anyway. I spec'd .895" length and .507 diameter for this mold and Lee hit it right on the head. Was shooting for as much weight as we could get and stay within the double-cavity block limits. All three people that have cast with their new mold are reporting weights from 441 to 443 grains. We only ordered 25 and probably should have ordered more.

That's a pretty good looking bullet... are these the actual pic's...?

They started as the one on the left in this pic from Batchief:

then I removed the pink hues


shrunk the size, isolated the new bullet, then doubled it up for the halibut. Other than those changes, yes - they are actual pics. :mrgreen:

So are you still without mold????? I was only joking when I sayed you get yours last... of course I haven't heard from anyone else either.. so I can't say what the delivery situation turned out to be.

5 at 50 yards fired this morning by Batchief from one of his White Super 91s. These were his first five shots.


He then tried a group at 100 yards but his head went to pounding and blood starting coming out of his mouth and nose. He might have been pushing things a bit as he just had surgery (sinuses) last week. He said the first three at 100 were touching but he blew the last two shots.
