    Check the offerings at NOE - www.noebulletmoulds.com - take a look at : 432-237-WC-PB 432-240-WFN-PB 432-246-WC-PB 434-234-RF-PB Maybe one of these or a slightly heavier design would be just the ticket . Gary

    gwpercle replied to a thread 75 grain wadcutter? in Cast Boolits
    A good light weight boolit that is easy to cast is the Lee 358-105-SWC , easy to load in 38 special and works like a charm in a 9mm luger light load . I cast mine with a 2-cavity Lee mould . Gary
