Anyone else got one of these? I got one as a present a couple of months ago and cast up a bunch. I tried some today over 5.4 grains of 231 and the results were excellent some of the best groups I've ever shot with My Kimber and Les Baer, shot to point of aim at 25 yds with the fixed sights on both guns, and with that large meplant it should handle chucks and the coyote pretty well with this charge. I'm guessing about 850fps but I'll chrono later this summer. I also had Buckshot make me a hollowpointing tool that should make this an even more versatile Boolit, I'm thinking about retiring my #68 H&G and ordering the 4 cavity version of this one. Anthony B may have some more to add as I know he has the same mold. Shame you don't hear more about this one.

I'm surprised that Tony didn't sell you on teh 45-230-CM RCBS. That's a great bullet as well./beagle
