    Man, I need to keep on my toes around here.

    Looks like Dan is done with them and Rick n Bama is next on the list.

    So, here's the list as it now stands


    Dan OH - Completed and soon to ship
    Rick N Bama - Soon to recieve
    SciFiJim - On deck


    Also; Dan, what weight were you getting from the Aluminum molds. For me they were dropping in the 190 grain weight, rather than 180.

    The molds arrived in today's mail. Be patient with me guys for I'm a slow caster. 30 minutes to an hour is a long session for me as the old back gets to barking if I stand there much longer.

    Thanks to DanOH for sending them to me.

    Rick,

    I built a tall bench so that I can sit. A little weird at first but I can sit a lot longer than I can stand.

    I have a bench where I could sit, but I stand so that I can beat a hasty retreat should the need arise

    Rick,
    Did the bullplate lube help with the sprue release?

    Maybe just a little, still I'm keeping the putty knife handy. This mold (the 4 holer) sure does cast better when the pour is hot. I'm keeping a damp rag handy to use on the sprue to speed things up a bit.

    As everyone else has found, my boolits are close to being under size, but I think I'll be able to use them.

    I should finish up with the mold this afternoon, then I want to cast a few with the 2 cavity, after that it's off to SciFiJim.

    Well, it appears that the molds are on their way to SciFiJim, so it appears we're reaching the end of the program.

    I think if we ever do this again, we all need to sign the box or something just so we can see where all it went. I think this box has crossed the country three or four times in the last two years.

    I received the molds today. It will be a few days before I can cast a few. I'll see if I can get some pictures up when I do.

    I got a chance to cast a few with each mould today. The two cavity mould boolits are measuring at,.354-.355, too small for me to use. About half of the four cavity boolits were also undersized, .356-.357. The others were measuring about .358-.3585. Then I got the idea to temporarily beagle the four banger with several thicknesses of aluminum foil. Four layers of foil placed full length just under the alignment pins did the trick. Now I am getting .3595-.3615. There were a lot of rejects with fins, but the rest will be usable after resizing. I will try again with two layers of foil and see what I get.

    Jim, will your gaschecks fit the Beageled boolits? I thought of Beageling the 2 cavity that way but asssumed the GCs wouldn't fit. It's a shame that the iron mold is casting undersized, as it sure was a pleasure to use. Pefect boolits fell from it for me, but they all went back into the pot after I checked them with the mics.

    I just came in from trying that very thing. I measured the nose when I got the previous numbers and didn't think to measure the driving bands. The bottom bands are still too small. So, all of about 200 that I have cast go back in the pot. If I try to beagle the top part of the mold, then the gas check shank will be to large. I am out of ideas.

    Well Gents, it looks like we've gotten to the end of the line on this particular "Rent a Mold" Program.

    I appreciate all the cooperation and honesty that has been exhibited during this program. At no time did we lose the molds and to my best examination the molds were treated with respect and care at all stages of the journey.

    It's been a pleasure participating in this project, and wouldn't have any reservations of assuming the Honcho position on any further ones. The one thing I would do different is I would have everyone sign a card or the box or something just so we could track the numbers of folks that participated.

    I'd also like to thank KYWoodwrkr, who is the one who started the ball rolling and selflessly offered up these molds to be shared.

    Y'all take care.

    I sure wish someone would do this with at least 3 different 12 ga molds.

    Slug molds? I'll be first in line to give them a try.

    Man a day late again. This is a really cool idea I would defiantly be interested in participating if you do something like this again. It would be a great way to check out these great custom molds.
