    Clarification, although most of you didn't notice the apparent error.

    There is NO gas check for a .40 caliber bullet.

    The original design for this bullet (images, first post) shows a plain base, and two options, lube grooves and no lube grooves. Solid nose and hollow point. That's it. Somehow, along the way, the concept of a gas check version for this came up, and some of you asked for a gas checked mold design. To repeat for the sake of clarity, there is no 40 caliber gas check. Miha just questioned this, and I went through the orders, and changed them all to plain base. There is no gas check version. I trust that this down not create any issues, since, even if Miha made them with gas check feature, you still can't find gas checks to fit on them, they don't really exist. You CAN buy a plain base style gas check for 40 caliber:
    https://www.sagesoutdoors.com/10-mm-...se-gas-checks/
    That would be my suggestion for those of you seeking a gas check for these bullets.

    (Not to confuse anyone, but 9mm plain base gas checks are 35 caliber rifle gas checks. They snap right on 9mm bullets, .355")

    The gas check discussion doe not effect the solid or hollow point nose, nor does it effect the lube grooves or no lube grooves.

    Your orders, as listed in Post #1, reflect your wishes for lube grooves and hollow points vs no lube grooves and solid nose.

    This will be an amazing 40 caliber 165 grain mold. Those who get them will be delighted. Those who miss out will be begging for any leftovers.
    This Buy is still active, we are still taking orders. It's on Miha's "radar" and he'll be dealing with them soon I suspect.

    It takes as long as it takes
    There are no pins for HP molds right now
    Be patient, it is worth it
    If you ordered a solid, then you may be getting a mold sooner rather than later
    Whoever ultimately supplies the pins, I pray they are real good

    Actually, the way Miha runs production is approximately as follows:
    * We gather the orders
    * When he has enough HP orders to order the pins, he orders pins, and MOLD BLOCKS at the same time.
    * When pins and mold blocks come in, he sets up to run. He runs all orders, HP and solid nose, at the same time. Those who want solid nose should not expect to see their orders any time sooner than those who ordered HP's.

    So, deep breath, we'll see them soon enough.

    I am thinking on this one, any idea how long we have to order yet? I need to move $$ around so I can, if I'm going to do it.

    I would direct your reading to this post:
    http://castboolits.gunloads.com/show...=1#post4538037

    There is no money up front. You will get an invoice from Miha when he has made them all, and is ready to ship.

    So, no reason to not get in the list.

    DukeInFlorida - TY, having insomnia and so far it's winning somewhat...

    * Screen Name Mr_Sheesh
    * How Many molds ? 2
    * How many Cavities? 4
    * Lubed (grooved) or Powder Coat style (no grooves)? Powder Coat Style
    * There is no option for gas check. sorry NP
    * Disguised email address rd232d at yahoo dot com
    * Zip Code 98007
    * Handles or no handles? Handles
    * DHL shipping (an additional 6 Euros added to your invoice, currently $6.83 US for three day shipping) or regular shipping. Regular, DHL doesn't seem able to find this place due to the USPS's oddness when they changed some roads here

    So 4 Cavity Bullet Lube or Powder Coat style (no lube groove)and no mixing of types in single mold, Hollow Point, all pins, Brass

    I could deal with plain nose but cups should do me...

    Your post indicates that you want TWO of the 4 cavity molds. I'm not sure I understand your comments about DHL shipping. You don't need to do anything specific, prior to shipping, with regard to DHL shipping. If you desire approx 3 day shipping vs a couple of weeks, then DHL is the way to go. Miha will make all the arrangements, and your delivery would come from a DHL driver. They are VERY good at what they do. I understand your post to request regular Postal Office shipping.

    Correct me if I am wrong. Thanks.
