    I only asked, because I would have thought heating the PC a second time to 425 for an hour, would have made the PC crispy. I guess my assumption is wrong.

    Didn't your PC burnup?

    If you are PCing after heat treat, then are you water quenching again?

    I had a Lee 2 cav 501-440 RF mold with chatter lines, I've cast many, they shoot fine in a handgun. I'd be less thrilled about chatter if it were a rifle boolit mold.
