    This is a previously manufactured 2 cavity boolit mold for the S&W 500 Magnum. It is, in fact, the largest/longest/heaviest boolit that will fit in the cylinder for the S&W 500 Magnum, the worlds most powerful handgun. This grandpa of a boolit weighs 700 grains. As you all know, a grain is 1/7000th of a pound. So, ten boolits weighs ONE POUND of lead!!!!

    I am awaiting pricing and cavity/insert details from Mihec, but he told me to go ahead and open the Group Buy. He will schedule the mold for machining when we get 20 molds committed for. They will be run in brass as they were the first time. They are gas checked. They will include Cramer style inserts for Flat Nose, and Hollow Points.

    Here is a link from the previous run:
    http://castboolits.gunloads.com/show...d-Canyon-HP-FP

    So, this mold hasn't been run since 2010. I have had many people ask me for samples, and I have been happy to provide them. However, those same people are now begging for a mold of their own. I run them in 100% wheel weight alloy, and size to .501". I have loads developed for Lil Gun powder, but my favorite load uses Trail Boss powder.

    Mihec has confirmed that this order will be exactly the same as the last run:
    • Mold will be two cavity, brass
    • Three pin sets will be included: Flat nose, round hollow point, five sided hollow point
    • Price is 80.75 Euros, delivered = $95.70 US
    • Production will get scheduled when we reach 20 molds

    Since Mihec said that they will be exactly like last run, and all of the molds from the last run were made WITH gas checks, these will be gas checked molds. You ***DO*** know that you can shoot gas checked bullets without gas checks, right?

    Let me know if that changes your needs.

    With that in mind, I'll change my order to 1 2 cavity mould with gas checks. All pins.

    Thank you,

    There were also previous 500 and 600 grain versions of this mold made. I am getting requests for the other versions. As soon as I hear back from Mihec, I will add those to this listing, or make a new thread to cover those. Expect an update.

    UPDATE: Dialog with Mihec has begun. Some of the discussion relates to whether the various sizes can be made from the same cutter/cherry. Will advise as soon as I get further definition. It's at least looking like there are 4-6 additional sizes that could be offered.

    So, I have been given the ok to add buys for the other sizes of the 500 S&W mag boolits. However, even though some of the designs are similar, they all use different cherries to cut the cavities. So, each will be it's own group buy. I'll post those later today. If you are a 500S&W magnum afficianado like I am, you'll want one of every mold.
