    Noe mold for Marlin 44mag 1894 CB

    I have an older 1894 marlin CB that I'm wanting to shoot. I need a mold an assume it needs to drop .432 or larger. Looking at 2 different molds from NOE.

    Just looking for advice. I'm not opposed to saving on lead! Purpose will be 50yd paper punching only. I don't hunt and I'm not in the army so killing power is not important.

    It's a 24" barrel. Don't know if the big lube grove helps or not. Are the hollow point NOE molds easy to use. I have a couple MP hollow point molds and like them.

    If I remember correctly, big lube grooves are for the blackpowder shooters. Most Marlins tend to shoot the lighter bullets better due to their twist. I have one NOE hollowpoint mold, brass in 454-424 and it's an absolute nightmare to use. With the solid pins it's fantastic, despite my best efforts ( mold release, graphite, polishing, temperature controls, swearing) nothing has worked for the hollow points. For the record, I love Al's molds and have a pile of them but if your in the market for a less fussy HP mold, MP is quite a bit more user friendly.

    I ordered this one in a 4 cavity PB. It's shorter than a 224gr SWC so maybe the marlin will shoot it pretty accurately.
