    NOE makes a hollow based boolit mold for the 50/70, two of them actually. I have used the heavier in my sporterized 1866 but the newer lighter boolit is certainly interesting.


    My mistake, the lighter boolit is 510 diameter.

    Knowledge I take to my grave is wasted.

    I prefer to use cartridges born before I was.

    Success doesn't make me happy, being happy is what allows me to be successful.

    Update. The bore is .5012. Groove is .5245. I've loaded a .526 bullet in the case using a CH4D M type expander. The case mouth bell was removed by running it through a full length sizer die. The rounds drop in easily and extract smoothly. Should I have any concerns about pushing that .526 bullet through the .5012 bore? Feedback will be appreciated.
