    Since I'm a comercial caster my greatest need is a bioolit that'll perform well in most lever guns and that's available in blocks for auto casters. When I have decided which boolit accurate molds can make me what I need either for my Mark-X or...

    I'm the same way, Tom. I prefer Smiths and not Rugers but that's another matter. The SA Rugers do not fit me. With recoil they spins around in my hand like crazy, and the middle finger get smacked by the trigger guard. On SRH or Smiths I get another...

    Anyone with experience with any of these light boolits in lever action rifles? Se pics I'm thinking of ordering a set from Magmaengeneering or maybe Accuratemolds.com. All good boolits from 300-350 gr are of interest. Feeding reliably in lever...

    What diameter do you size your 475 Linebaugh or 480 Ruger to? I have a friend that sizes to 475. Seems a bit on the small side to me, but he claims it works perfect with a 380 gr boolit without gc. Sent fra min SM-G930F via Tapatalk

    Send it back! That's what I would do anyway. New moulds should cast round boolits and the halfs should line up! Sent fra min SM-G930F via Tapatalk

    I recently baught a Lyman mould for use in a buddy's 308 rifle. There was noe trouble sizing this to 309. Alloy was approximately 2sn3.5sb. They were easy to size but not to small for my use. Sent fra min SM-G930F via Tapatalk

    You could also try to loosen the sprue plate if it's tight. That way you get better venting. (I read youre post again and I see that you've tried the things I have suggested already. This normally helps with problems like this, so if nothing...

    Turn up the pouring rate so you drop the same amount of lead at a shorter time. If I pour too slow I get similar rounded bases and bad fillout. With your alloy you should not have this problem. Both melt and mould are hot enough Sent fra min...
