    I already have this one but my recommendation would be to just open the GB thread and start building your list. Iím sure others will join in and who cares if it takes 2 months or 6 months to fill the list, itís one that people will want once they...

    I will throw this out there in support of this one. This is a must have mold for the 45 in my opinion. I already have this design and itís absolutely amazing. I cast the HP in a nice soft high tin (4%+) blend and it gives very good expansion. Donít...

    You could also post a WTB (want to buy) thread in the swapping and selling section with what youíre looking for and quantity. See if anyone has and is willing to sell to you.

    For those interested in this mold, itís a fantastic caster for both 9mm and 380. My nephew refers to these as deadly crayons.

    I got some MedTerra CBD topical cream samples at a trade show last year and the 750mg works wonders on my knee with torn cartilage. The 150mg tube I bought recently also works very well but not quite as well as the 750mg version. Iíve also used...

    I would recommend reaching out to LakeHouse2012 (or one of the other Honchos) and see if he and Miha would be willing to do a group buy on the mold. From what I understand he uses the group buys to also resupply his inventory (I may be wrong in this...

    I cast Mihaís MP 454-200 for my dad at around 200gr and heís never complained about his Sig or 1911 having any issues much less feeding. This is his preferred bullet for timed competitions so if he had any hang ups he would have let me know. ...

    Gamsek beat me to it. That was my first MP Mold and itís still my favorite. Great little bullet in 380 and has done well for my 9mm shooters I cast for as well.

    Thank you, for the info. Upon further consideration, Iím good with the mold I have. Tight gas checks are a good thing in my opinion so Iím good with as is. Thank you and Miha for looking into this for us.

    For sure but only if heís running a series of them and Iím more than happy to pay for them. If itís him being put out please donít sweat it. Would anyone else be happier to have a replacement block set instead?

    I can say that if Miha is going to run another set I would pay him for the corrected blocks but if not Iíll deal with tight gas checks before going without the mold. These were a bear to install but they ended going on nice and tight which probably...

    I use a 2%Sb/7%sn/91% Pb mix for my MP 454-200s with the HP pin installed. Very accurate in my dads 1911 as well as his 1917 revolver in bowling pin shoots. I have seen great results out of my 1911 against paper at 10yds with either 2/4/94 or 2/7/91...

    This may be a down and dirty way of doing it (and hopefully someone has a more elegant/precise way) but it seems to me you could take an appropriately sized countersink (handheld) and turn it a little in the sprue from the top than stone the bottom...

    You both are on the right path. Lubrisizers are the old gold standard because they figured out a way to do multiple things all at once. No matter what kind of lube you do, you have to size the bullets somehow. I started out on a Lyman 45 that I...

    Depending on the load you may be able to get by with just powder coating as opposed to gas checking. I have some 44mag bullets that cast with a gas check shank and they shoot very nice with just PC on them and no check. You might also keep an...
