    I have the lyman 335 grn mouldand it cast with 20-1 around .377 this also depends a little on temp of alloy and mould. I shoot it as cast in my high wall.

    I've got the 250 gr. Lyman in both PB and GC; both drop .377-378 from the 50/50 COWW/Range Scrap alloy I use for smokeless loads. Consistent enough that I pan lube and load 'as cast' for my .38-55 Highwall.
