    Yall be careful with this mold. I got 2 of these last time around and it got rid of most of my lead this past year. Look at the photo and be careful.

    Hey Lakehouse,

    Please add me to the list. Glad I caught this one, just happened upon the group buy trying to figure out which buckshot mold I got from Mihec a year or two back!

    I was observing that the 8 cav molds have opening cam
    and whoever orders me, from brass, doesn't have it
    anyone who has used it, is it difficult to open the 6 cav sprue plate?

    Neuces,

    The 6 and 8 cavity molds out of aluminum are the only with a cam. There is a hardened steel plug under the cam which prevents any wear on aluminum.

    These style are very easy to open and a pleasure to use for long periods of time.

    Lakehouse, do you mind explaining what you mean by a cam? I have a few Mihec brass and aluminum molds, but I'm not sure what you mean by the Al mold having a cam?

    Are you suggesting the brass one will have a top/hammer-to-cut sprue plate whole the Al one will have a bottom/swivel-to-cut using a third handle (like the Lee 6 cavity molds)?

    Forgive my ignorance, just want to make sure I understand the differences between the molds. Pics would be great if anyone has them!

    Thanks

    Sorry i didnt explain all that well, let me try again with pics.

    2 types of sprue plates:

    Mallet opening which have the pivot closest to you
    And
    Cam or Lee style sprues which have the pivot on the far side of you. This 8 cav aluminum has a handle that acts like a shear to cut your sprue, it uses a cam to leverage the force and cut for you.

    There is a small steel plug in the alum mold that reduces wear.

    Not at all. Its typical of all sprue plates; if the mold is at proper temp, and you have let the pour cool down for too long it pops right open with a tap of a mallet.

    Ok! I've held out as long as I can.

    6 cav brass, NLG, FB, alamogunr AT charter DOT net

    I've got the original 8 cavity aluminum mold but want to try a PC boolit.

    I won't order unless someone tells me I'm missing something. DHL shipping is a serious consideration.

    The nose profile is slightly different on that boolit on Mihas website. Its also a good shooter but not identical to this GB.

    regarding the BB, this group buy will offer a BB for first time with this profile.

    When someone wants a NLG, the process miha has to do is, 1st create the mold as a lube groove, then 2nd step is he runs another cutter in to clean out the groove. When you run cutter in, the BB also gets removed. So you cant have a NLG with a BB.

    Hope this helps,

    I have extensively used all iterations of this mold, and the flat base is the most accurate one.
    Just putting that out for anyone who's curious.
    My experience is with Glocks and CZ's.

    Ok! I've considered all the points of view and have decided to stay with this GB as indicated in my post #75 including the Flat Base.
