    I tried them. They ripped the PC off some bases and melted others (no change in oven temp). I've gone back to my 'grids' as shown in my post 'Standing Tall Boolits' http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?309398-Standing-Tall-Boolits. YMMV.

    I used to separate them through a hole-punched paper plate, but since they have to be grasped and stood up anyway, I now just fish them out of the Parkay #5 with the little needlenosed pliers from the BB/powder mix. It works fine for me: YMMV.

    You're just going to have to get longer posts and a bigger post pounder. Those post stealing scrappers might give up if your posts are driven deep enough.

    Welcome! These fine people taught me more about casting (and PPing and PCing!!) boolits in my first five years here than I'd discovered on my own in the previous fifty-odd. I hope it works like that for you.

    These are commercial cast .381 and the dies are so tight they won't even load them .It's in a 1911 1894.Wouldn't be much point of sizing them .379 and they still may not chamber or crimp properly.

    Well both the RCBS dies and rifle throat are too tight to allow .381 cast in Win brass.Not sure where that leaves me? Have the chamber throat enlarged as well as the dies or just get a 336 re-bored and hang the Win on the wall? The bullet is shoved...

    If I'm not mistaken, there's a passage in the bible that says if your neighbor loses his load of sticks from his donkey, you help him pick them up. If he doesn't pitch in, you quit.
