    Forgive me, Bob but I can't remember any of Keith's designs being hollow points? IIRC, he was a fan of deep penetration. I have been wrong before.

    I would have to dig to find the articles but he did have HP version of the 429421-- for deer etc-- not that it matters

    Been to long since I read his books but he mentioned hollow point versions of his 38 bullet & how destructive they were on jackrabbits.

    And let's not forget dear old Elmer's other design for the .44, Lyman/Ideal No.429422 hollow base...

    Has anyone reported back on the long range accuracy of the prochko version?
    For the average shooter "long range" is about 50 yards I am interested in at least 200 yard results but will gladly listen to any results whatsoever.
    The prochko looks a lot closer to a full wadcutter than a 429421.

    Don't Know if this helps anybody reading this thread but I have an Ideal 429421 HP mold (NFS), this was given to my uncle who has passed away, by E. K. at an NRA convention. I am not an experienced caster hell I am not even an amateur caster but if any of the dimensions help I would be happy to post them.

    I really appreciate the photos of (apparent?) Keith bullets. I have several RCBS molds that have KT following the number that are supposed to be true Keith designs, but I think they may have been modified a bit for easier casting.
