ID:	257256My favorite 357 Boolit!!

    I just got a 358429 HP after many years on and off looking!! (Same sane only HP). I also have had a 358429 2 cav for decades.

    My hunting load is with heavy charge of BlueDot. A stiff load but safe in my Gunís.

    -Texas thread hijack-

    pdman I'm about an hour and change up the road from you in Round Rock. No 357 Keith bullets in my inventory but lots others including a handful of Mihec molds. PM me if I can help a casting brother out.

    Great looking bullet. I cast from an olllld 358-429 mold. Very good bullet.
    You can miss fast & you can miss a lot, but only hits count.

    First, that is a beautiful boolit. Why do you call it an Arsenal ? Also, check your OAL figure. If my old brain recalls correctly, the empty 357 Mag case is 1.290" nominal or max, don't recall which.

    Because it is an Arsenal brand mold.
    We Know Mass Cannot Be Weighed But It Has Newtonian Weight And That Is Derived From Kilograms And Kilograms Can Be Converted to Pounds. But, Still Mass Cannot Be Weighed. But How is the kilograms obtained? Can Kilograms Be Weighed? Evidentally Yes It Can. But, Still Mass Cannot Be Weighed So Kilograms Must Not Exist. Funny Isn't It.
    One good thing out of this the next time I'm at the doctors and they want to weigh me I'll tell them mass cannot be weighed.

    Never heard of them so I looked them. I wonder why I have never seen that name on the forum before? Thanks 44MAG#1.

    They should be more well known. Quality is every bit as good as NOE. They don't do a lot of custom work like Accurate, but if you ask and are patient, Arsenal does do custom designs. The great thing about Arsenal is that you get NOE quality at about half to 2/3 the price. NOE is great that they offer less expensive hollow point molds. Accurate is great that they do full custom ordering.
