    New Lee 35 cal 200 gen 2 cavity

    Hello all, got a new Lee two cavity 35 cal 200 grn gc mold yesterday to try out in my 35 Whelan. I went out today and cleaned it up, heat cycled it a few times on top of my lead pot and smoked it with a bic. After the first few pours it started turning out some really nice looking boolits! They are cooling right now, so no word yet on weather or not they drop to size, but there are a pile of good looking boolits sitting on my bench waiting for pc and gas checks.
    Just figured on an update for new Lee mold.

    They are way better than the last couple versions they have had. If you did not know, the sprue plate bolt is a reverse thread.

    Discovered the reverse thread spruce plate screw when adjusting plate tension. I had read that somewhere, so not a complete surprise. I am a newbie, but having great luck so far mostly...

    I got that mould when they first came out with it . Drops right at .359 with my alloy and at 205 grs shoots really well in my 35 Rem

    I got that mould to use in a H&R 357 single shot, as a 360DW.

    I cast some up, but haven't gotten around to working up a load.
