    That’s a good point. What if I cast smooth sided boolits ?
    Just wondering.

    Right here ..at least I was a minute ago
    It would still only size the portion of the bullet that is the same or larger size than the sizer

    out of here, wandering somewhere in the SW.
    I own both standard (A LOT OF THEM!) and at least 5 NLG's. I cannot see any difference in performance or accuracy in my guns. Most of us have lots of standard groove molds, so why reinvest $$ when you have perfectly good molds for PC use?

    And a grooved mold will probably have a higher resale value if you ever sell!

    Years ago I wanted to find the difference between WD and AC. Working with the RD 30/30 mould. Vice grips on the ends and twist till break. Always broke at the lube groove, weakest point. No groove gives more metal contact with rifling, thus bearing surface can be reduced. 22lr as gone coated now, expect larger cal to go that way when the commercial guys figure it out. Plating is expensive.
