    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!

    Colt 1860, it just feels right.

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