    All said above is right. It usually takes 10 to 12 days for them to get Denver, Start reading about the quirks of casting with brass and patina while you wait it will be worth it.

    I'd take it to a custom western hat maker and see what they think. I suspect there are a couple somewhere around your neck of the woods, or Nashville. They can probably re block and clean it.

I have been reloading since 1970 when I started with shotgun while in HS. Have an civil engineeering degree and own my own company doing mining consulting work for clay, quarry stone and sand and gravel mines in Colorado. I have done this for 37 years. Just started casting this month (May 2014). I shoot both rifle and pistol and fish and elk hunt.
