    My 32 Rem , rimless sister , likes a case full of IMR 4350 with a plain base Lee 323-175 2R in this case the 323 sizer is right on at 323 and a perfect FIT in the 316x321 Rem 14 . I use a modified Darrs , grease em' up push em' through load em' . The slow powder comes in around 2150 fps just over 30kpsi , that's about where IMR 4350 cleans up .

    The 225-37 FP 5C PB and 310-165-FN 5C GC arrived yesterday .
    Pretty snappy service of course I'm only 700 miles of open freeway and highway from my front door so maybe 72hr isn't so great from confirm order to knock knock "PO I have a package" .
    Washed , heat cycled , ready to go !

    I picked up a Lee 155 gr .45 SWC from eBay. It arrived late yesterday. Today I got to play with it. I have a feeling that this 155 gr boolit is going to become my favorite .45 ACP boolit.

    This Ideal 308334 arrived at my doorstep yesterday. As cast from COWW, the nose measures 0.3010 - 0.3015, the bands measure 0.3110 - 0.3115, weight hovers around 197.5 grains, and nearly invisible seam-lines from the mould halves. Perfection in iron and wood! I'm hoping these are gonna find a happy home in my .30-'03 chambered Winchester Model 1895.

    Lee 6 cavity 401-175TC to hold me over until a Noe 402-188 WFN with HP option gets enough buyers.

    I've actually had this Lyman SC 432360 in my box for a while. Just hadn't done anything with it yet.

    I pulled it out today and started to clean it up. Man it was a mess. Hardened grease in the cavity. Moly lube on the sprue plate. Took almost an hour to clean it up.

    Finally got it cleaned up and pouring and I have to say I love this boolit. It's just sexy looking.

    I picked up a Lyman 225462. My new favorite .22 cal bore rider. It didn't take me long to figure out you have to cast hot and fast to keep it running. There's a lot of difference between a Lee 2C .22 cal mold and a Lyman 2C .22 cal mold.


    I'm going to use this in my .223 bolt action for reduced loads.

    Received a Lee 358-105 yesterday. Having a bit of problem getting the shoulder to fill out.

    Received my Arsenal 403-180 WFN today. Awesome mold. Boolits drop like rain!

    My buddy called yesterday morning and told me he had some molds for me.

    Met him at the range and picked them up.

    4 cavity H&G 68
    4 cavity H&G 130
    A mold to be announced. I have a thread in Cast Boolits, Guess the mold and boolit.

    He also told me he has several more H&G when he finds them.

    Received an H&G #50 4 cavity yesterday that I purchased from a member here. Its an older San Diego mold and possibly has never been used.
