i have been looking for a mold suitable for the .22 hornet and would like a few Thoughts on a 42 gr gas checked bullit mold made by Cast Bullet Engineering

has any one used this mold ?

Is it suited to the .22 hornet ?

how do cbe molds compare to the rest?

What is your barrel's twist rate? A 1 in 16 twist is "challenged" beyond about 45 grains.

How way down south are you Dover?, Cockle Creek? or just Hobart?
The CBE molds are a pleasure to cast with, I've got one for the 32/20 and it's a gem. If I can get a marlin 375 I'll be getting his 220 gn mold for that.

The rifle is a CBC break open single shot the twist seems to be about 1:16 it shoots 40 gr V-max extremly well planing to use the cast bullits for plinking and maybe rabbits

A very handy gun it came with a .410 barrel that can be changed out in seconds bought it for my daughter to learn with after shes good enough with the .22 i didnt want a bolt action that relied only on a safety swich. once loaded the hammer has to be manualy cocked

im just north of Hobart it must be the driest place on earth at the moment havent had rain in months
