    Hadd a guy weld up some 1 1/2" angle iron molds. 3 pieces 7" long along side each other with the same material welded across each end. Weighs just over 2 lbs depending on how well I have leveled them and fill them. I use them for final alloy blends,...

    Tested 3 powders in my old M51-L JC Higgins 308 with the Noe #315 clone last fall. Alloy was roughly 1.5 Sn, 3 Sb, water quenched out of the PC oven. Went up to 2450 or so with H4350 and Varget, 2250 or so with N202 and H4831sc. Ended up shooting 3...

    ole_270 replied to a thread 45ACP MBC Cast Choice in Cast Boolits
