    My younger Grandson got his 1st on Tuesday. 8 year old boy got a 23 lb bird with a 10 1/4" beard. Used a 410 with TSS shot at 10 yards out of a blind. A bit older cousin got a jake this morning. Only bird we saw and he needed to get back home.

    I used that mold about 30-35 years ago for practice loads in the ol'270 when it was the only centerfire I owned. Sizer die was about .2785 if I remember right. Loaded alot of light loads with Red Dot and 2400 out of the Lyman manual. Had a homemade...
