    Looks good. Those boolits are purty as the old cowboy said. Sure beats mine. Tell us what mould you are using.

    Lee 200 grain 309 mould, hornady crimp on gas checks. Approximately 5% tin. Small amount of antimony. Ladle poured.

    I'm getting ready to do the same thing. I have the Lee 309-150 and 309-170. Gator gas checks and will powder coat when that comes tomorrow. Will probably run the 150 in the 300aac and the 170 in my 30-06. What are you running your 200g in?

    If you're like me, you'll shoot'em up before deer season and have to cast more.

    Deer season is nearly over and due to this corona virus lockdown I haven’t even been able to get out for a shot. Managed to get my new rifle sighted in and partially run in before the lockdown.

    Last year was a round ball deer, but the year before I used a 200 grain boolit with a giant meplat in my 30-06. One and done. She did a donut after I hit her and fell over 25 yards from the metal connected with the meat and that was it. A big wad of lead with a flat point works great.
