    I have this one, and it's a winner in my .54 1/48 twist Deerstalker. I use it with 85 grains of Goex 2F. Very accurate combo. http://accuratemolds.com/bullet_detail.php?bullet=55-430M-D.png

    I agree with you on rifle cartridges, however, on handguns like the OP's powder is a much less significant facture. A MOA difference on a scoped rifle is huge. On a semi-auto handgun it's only 1/4" at 25 yards. The exception is the pressure of...

    Make sure the gas check is in the neck of the case. You don't want the grease groove showing either. So set it where ever that is for your bullet
