    This is a GB for a 2 or 4 cavity Gc mold meant for a 35 caliber rifle or pistol.
    It should cast about .359" diameter and weight about 180 grains as solid,
    Large HP at 171,
    Small Hp at 176 grain,
    a Cup Hp at 177 grain.
    Meplat to crimp: 0.295" and 0.334".

    What are the measurements from the nose to the two different crimp grooves? I am interested but trying to get an idea of case over all length when crimped in 38 special and 357mag cases. Would it be possible to get a plain base version? Possibly a single large lube groove rather than two small ones?

    Been wanting something in that weight in a SWC (358429), but that one might work just fine.

    Only one crimp groove, please, the .334 one.
    A box of premium carry ammo is too expensive at about $30, so I've spent $1,000 on molds, lead, lube, primers, and powder over the past 10 years to make some that's cheaper!

    How does this nose style differ from that of the standard 640 nose?

    Ok, stop twisting my arm! I'd be in for one, I assume these would have the pins to change the HP size?

    Yes. Not one set, but 5 sets (blank and penta, too)

    I would be in for one with a .334" only crimp groove, brass 4 cavity plain base.

    Also would like to know if a rerun of the 158gr 360640 could possibly put up, would like a single crimp groove 4 cavity version of that as well.
