    Well - I broke the top edges of the mold - used an old hone stone, knocked off the corners just enough to see, then fired up and set the mold on top of the SAECO as per usual. Gave it a while to melt down the load, then went out and had at it....

    Thanks, JB - I will break the top edges before I cast again. I intended to size .360 and use NRA loob, then TL w/Recluse, and see how the Whelen likes 'em. Ed

    I got a new Lee 35-200 2-cavity on eBay, and gave it a try a couple of days ago. Wanted to try them in my 35 Whelen. The results weren't to my liking. When it gave me a good boolit, it was a good boolit. But at least half the time the pair turned...
