    Dad's always shot better than Bings . I suspect it's been one of those things where the 120s were right at the ragged edge . Machine tolerance long on the rifling and long bullets and it goes out the back side of the curve . The cast bullet , at...

    I was taught mold grows on bread and mould was a form to hold a liquid to cool or dry to a solid form . So an ice try is a mould .

    I don't Dad or Bingo would mind if I shot it a lot . Having moved from the west edge of the Great Basin to the Southern Ozark Green Hell I don't expect to have a lot call for Dad's 25 or the 264 WM beyond blowing the cob webs out so I have an excuse...

    My casting sessions vary widely . It's pretty easy to get into a groove with 4,5,6 cavity moulds with 60-150 gr bullets and pour 30+lbs and end up with a lot of bullets . On the other side of the road when the 45s come out with 1,2,3&6 cavity moulds...

    Probably not a lot of help . The 230 is just too much of a good thing . The little 97 gr bullet is a fun little 22LR/mag replacement . The 165 gr Ranch Dog is a nice bullet and with IMR 4350 will reach jacketed full power load levels .
