    I used an old single cavity Lee 160 gr rn. They weighed 150 gr as they came from the mold, I'm believing I have a bit much babbit in those. They are some I casted about 7 years ago... I only have 2 30 caliber molds, the other is a 165 gr RD...

    This is our method as well. Tin foil on cookie sheet cook till crisp, but still tender in places like the meat and some of the fat portions. Makes good bacon that way. On the stove top it makes a huge mess and it seems to always scorch and get burnt...

    Right there where the action is happening. (my preference) I can slide the TC out a little when moving or inserting the tray and slide it back when the tray is loaded.

    Yes, it helps. In a defensive situation you probably won't even hear the firearm going off, but with all that you must be aware of you may not even notice the recoil. You will notice the ringing in your ears after the situation is settled.
