    results --MP 356-130 2R 9mm/38 8-cav Alum only

    I hadn't seen this forum before. But, my results were HORRIBLE. 9mm/.357 and PC'd, sized like all my other tested Lee molds and this was by far the worst shooting bullet I've owned. At least a 2' diameter hit cone through a 16" carbine at 50 yards.

    Any thoughts on why it performed so badly in your carbine? Diameter too small maybe?

    Well I was just answering another members question about drop size, and I had one bullet left and was gonna give him a answer. Turns out it has a size anywhere from .357 to .361 !!!! So I don't know if I did something to cause that or my molds are messed up.

    Have you tried this mold again? Was it heated up well before you started keeping boolits? Seems like a huge dif in sizes.
