    Seems that applying two more coats of Hi-Tek Gold on those .356 boolits would fix the problem. Maybe bring them up to around .357 It seemed to work for me. How is that for not making any direct statements? LOL

    What Merlin said about wooden mould good and level when poured. Also drill the holes where needed in the mold and put two wood dowels the correct size and shape for screw heads then you don't need to drill the lead.
