    They're very easy to find in a Dillon if you buy range brass. EVERYTHING comes to a sudden halt. I finally got it all culled out.

    I water drop everything into a half full 5 gal bucket. If a splash did hit the mold Im sure the water would would not stay long. Water dances around when you put it on a hot surface. An open mold facing down is not going to hold water.

    I read negative stuff from people that have never touched one. I like the looks of the gun myself. I'm betting its a fine shooting single shot. Post a review of the gun After you get some shots down range. Can't wait to hear how it does.
