    Ideal 358 156

    I acquired this mold recently, finally got time to test it out, it has a sticky cavity...REALLY STICKY... it was a challenge to get the 20+ boolits cast (shown in photo). This mold looks awesome, but needs some TLC. on the plus side, I was glad to see that the old GC's I had on the shelf, fit it nicely.

ID:	223388Swede Nelson teased us up with a 4th of July 20% discount on NOE molds and I just had to bite! I ordered a 264 gr Keith 4 banger and it arrived on Saturday. I scrubbed her down with a toothbrush and some dish detergent and poured a few. These are a bit soft, the mix was 1lb 12oz of lino and 2.4 oz of tin with 16.5 lbs of pure lead. It makes a 270 gr boolit and I PC'd them with Smokes Carolina Blue, and sized them to .430. As soon as I have my cataract removed, I'm going to try them in a few 44's and maybe in my 44 spl S&W model 24-6.

    Who the heck has an air-conditioned reloading room with proper ventilation to cast in a heat wave ?
    Happiness is a Warm GUN & more ammo to shoot in it.

    LAH,
    I can't hate you.
    But it just ain't fair. It's 85degrees and humid and we're only 3 miles from the beach, can't wait for sundown.

    A few weeks ago I fired up a new waage pot and ladle case these NOE. 45 HP bullets. The individual bullets are scraped up because they hit the ground. They went into the reject pile

    Yesterday morning I coated those HP bullets and about 1,000 I made from an Arsenal .45 mold. I traded these bullets nd a few more for the lead ingots in another thread.

    I had one of my OLD buddies come over today, to help replace the lift strap in the hoist for my scooter. Outside in the nice bright sunshine. Half hour job, drank 2 glasses of ice tea each & went out to air conditioned Diner. 90degresses at 1100hrs. Pretty hard on two old farts. Nothing like a Chocolate Malted to cool ya off.
    He left with 500 ACCURATE .45's I cast on last monday. Lubed them last night on the patio while the sprinklers were on.

    Cast 175 Lyman 266469's. Vintage mold, black and orange box with the metal corners. I am the first to use this new old stock mold. Single cavity takes awhile to cast up a pile.

    These are for a 6.5x54 M/S.

    I got so tired of being run out of outdoors due to it raining all the time and the humidity so I moved it indoors to the stove top, it's soooo nice casting in the A/C that I doubt if I will ever do it outside again.

    I cast a bunch of Lee ingots of stick on WWs. Smelted them into ingots and got about 30lbs out of the deal. I am gonna cast 1oz. slugs and buckshot out of them. They are sooofffttt. No AC however. The sweat was rolling in the workshop.
    You can miss fast & you can miss a lot, but only hits count.
