    I am sure a plain base gas check would take care of it. I was just thinking of a way to get that perfect mushroom out of the shallow hp at nuke speed. I had to download the ones Oreo sent me a lil to get rid of the leading.

    I do think a pin that is the same depth as the shallow hp that is a curved dish would be pretty sweet. There is just too many ideas to ever be able to do them all.

    Actually, I've done quite a bit of testing with this shallow hollow point shape, but in other bullets, both .40 and .45 cal. That was my basis for recommending it for this group buy.

    I would like to thank Oreo for running this buy and MiHec for making a great mold.
    This is my first group buy and first brass mold and all I can say is,
    THANK YALL SO MUCH!!!
    They cast at .402? I hope its just your alloy. Cause I size mine to .4025.

    All I have to measure with is a cheap digital caliper, my lead is Wheel Weight from
    a shop close by. I did go back and measure some again and they are .403.
    I will measure as I cast and see how they come out.

    Got any pics of those results?

    This boolit takes design cues from many established designs but it is original in the sense that I drew the blueprints from scratch. Your experience is likely to be very instructive but this boolit has not yet been tested.

    let them set for a while before you measure them so your findings will be more accurate. Mine came in at 403 with WWs and range scrap mix.

    Neck expanding dies? What are you guys using? Looks like RCBS makes a decent die.

    I have not had to expand mine. Even with the softer boolits you sent me. I pulled 3 to check. Did not size down. But honestly I would not mind having one just to make sure.

    I still don't have mine. The post office people are slacking. Maybe it'll come tomorrow. I've been saying that for over a week now.

    Let see, shot a deer with a cast boolit, saw it fall, stayed in the stand to let us know.

    Well. It was not anything special. Just an 8. To the outside of the ears. I just really wanted to test the boolit out. So here is what happened. I shot it about 35 yards. Bang flop. Did not make it an inch. Hit high shoulder. Passed through both shoulders. Found under skin on far side. Good mushroom. But not too much. Once I made it up to it I decided to lso do a test shot. Shot behind the shoulders. Just to see what the boolit would do only hitting organs. Wow. Fluid really opens up the shallow hp. Again found under far side skin. These rounds are downloaded from my first ones. They are 9.5 800x. I will post pics of both slugs in a lil bit. And of the deer. I don't have any internal damage pics yet. Oreos alloy is a lil softer than I will be casting. But if u don't push it to the max it works well.

    Weights are 181 from 190 with lube on the vitals only one.

    171 on the one that passed through both shoulders.

    Max exp on vital one .67.

    Max exp on shoulder one .63.

    WOW, they do swell a bit, I did not think the shallow point would.
    I have been wanting to try the large hollow point.
    Thanks for the pics.

    After seeing how the shallow hp works I don't think I see a need to ever cast the deep one.

    Again thanks to Oreo for sending me next day 100 boolits to use for hunting. Seeing my mold got lost someplace.
