I have heard it is a good boolit so I bought the mould. The diameter was too small for my Browning and I could not get it to shoot so I lapped it a bit. The Browning still doesn't like it.

Mine casts at .459 with WW/Bank Scrap. weighs 510gr

In my RB with Green Mountain barrel 1-18 will shoot well to the rams. 68gr Goex FF
.060 gasket material wad.

I can get more powder in the case because the reamer I used had a 1.5 degree inclusive throat. but it doesn't shoot any better.

I'm still using 1996 goex FF

I have that mould. I have never used it, so I can't offer any sizing or accuracy info. It intrigued me too as a great bullet. Like all RCBS moulds, it just "looks like it will shoot." Well made. I had two Browning BPCR's (one in 40-65 and 45-70) Never put a round through either of them. Just was too busy at work. Both were sold to guys who actually wanted to make them go bang.

If anyone is interested in the mould, shoot me an email
