    I've only ever used and sold the Lyman #454190 in the Uberti's. Use a magic marker and color the boolit, then cycle it to see what's hitting and stopping it. Jeff

    Echo Hermans' response above. This is my favorite 9mm mold by far for general purpose shooting and a lot of my others are just gathering dust. 8 cavity rocks. Between the 359-135 and the 360-640 all my 9mm needs are met, no muss no fuss.

    This is just speculation, but you could try holding a straight edge along the big pin and see if there is any "bow" to it. As long and thin as the big pins are, there could have been some tooling deflection depending on the setup. Might be slightly...
