    Tracking shows my mold made it to Memphis yesterday. Now the most treacherous part of the journey begins.

    Update! Tracking shows mold is "Out For Delivery". So it escaped Memphis.

    Since I've bellyached so much about the delay, I thought I should report that my mold was delivered yesterday. Only had time to scrub it up and get ready to cast.

    Got my mould today. This is my first mp mould, so I made a small noob mistake. I didn't heat cycle the mould, combined with running my lead WAY to hot, I've got bits of lead basically soldered to a few cavities. I'm a dingus. Just a heads up to first time MP mould customers

    Preheat it on a hot plate, life gets much easier and results are faster/better. Alow for sprue to harden, count to 3, cut the sprue plate and observe bases. If you see any signs your mould is to hot, adjust your speed (slow down if you get smeared bases). Cotton cloth with few drops of MP included lubricant oil will remove small lead particles underneath sprue plate. See instructions. After preheating, for solid 6cav brass 9mm moulds, I cast at 360 Celsius (C). No problems even if I donít prep the mold. But everything settles for me usually after 3rd casting, mostly with HPs with pins.

    Mine should have been home two days ago, but post office left me the parcel slip rather than the package. Wife picked it up at PO today. Will check it out once I'm home.
    Woo-Hoo!

    Of course its High Velocity's mold LOL
    Don't like being hammered by the Cast Boolits Staff, then don't be a nail.
    The rules are simple to follow.

    Finally got to check mine out. It's a real beauty.
    Too much rain and too many tasks this weekend. So, maybe later this week I'll get to trying it out.

    Some little babies fresh out of the oven! 152 grain. Still need a sizing die... Although, I could probably get away with not sizing

    I have a clear that's supposed to be paired with this purple that gives it a really really deep, wet cosmic purple. But haven't gotten it to stick via shake now bake. I've since started using air soft bb's but haven't tried the clear yet... If that doesn't work, I'll try acetone tumbling

    CLOSED - MP Mold - 9mm Round Nose 147 grain Competition boolit

    Finally got around to trying this one out. Cleaned and heat cycled. Boolits dropped out easily after a handful of rounds. With my range scrap alloy, they drop at 150.3gn and .3588x.3581. Iím pretty happy.

    I feel like I've seen someone say they'll start a load data thread for this bullet. Has it been done?

    People wonder why the post office is losing money

    Track this mold - RH007806873SI

    Destination city is West Columbia.
    The distance between Columbia and West Columbia post offices is about 4 miles give or take.

    I wonder what indicates that it should go to Des Moines, IA before going to Columbia SC? That is like going around the world to get from the east coast to the west coast.

    The trip back to Des Moines doesn't make any sense either. Somebody in Columbia, SC screwed up.

    I'm still not sure what happened to my shipment, or why. MiHa expressed a replacement and I now have it in my hands. Thank you MiHa and DHL Express.

    I'm just wondering how many times the elusive package will go back and forth between Des Moines, Ia and Columbia, SC
    before someone in the postal system stops it permanently.

    Everyone has the right to be stupid.
    Although, politicians routinely abuse the privilege.

    I'd pop off an email to USPS telling them to stop eating crayons, giving them the tracking number
