    Lee 358-113-WC vs 358-116-WC?

    I am looking at buying one of these 2-cav molds:


    I do not think the article numbers in ballpoint are correct, the 90305 is the 356-102-RN in todays catalogue.

    Which design would you guys recommend?
    The 116gn does some more like a DEWC, but not yet quite. Maybe it would be too easy to confuse its sides and sometimes put it upsidedown by mistake?

    Personally, if you have the means, I would buy both and let the gun tell you which one to sell.
    Evaluate everything you read for safety and use common sense.

    Sometimes those DEWC's shoot better if you load them with the sprue side out.

    Bass is right. Buy 'em both.

    I would, but then I'm a big fan of wadcutters.

    Right, get both and sell me the one you don't like. I've got most other sizes and these don't seem to be available any longer.

    Hehe, that alone is reason enough to buy both and just keep them... No offense to you personally of course.
