    Yes, that is my intention but Miha (owner of MP) has the ultimate say on this depending on if he can physically make these pins. I'm usually right with these things, but Miha reserves the right to over-ride me on manufacturing. Hope this stays true...

    OK.

    I'll take one of the 8 aluminum with gas check.

    What is the ETA?

    Any chance of getting a weight estimate on the 6 cavity brass?

    Will you please edit your post and add a "disguized" email.

    ETA is difficult to say. Its up to 2 things:

    1) How quickly we are able to get to a minimum of 25 HP molds, Miha has to have the pins made in batches of 100 from his supplier.
    2) How backed up is he with other molds that he is machining. All the shops throughout the world are having trouble getting product out the door, MP has the same issues.

    That said- This group buy has been gaining traction, folks have been very interested in it. It might be 2-3 months and these are in our hands (only a guess by me)

    My postal scale is not with me right now, but I'm guessing brass mold with handles is 5 lbs. Comparing that to the 8-cav aluminum I'd say is 4 to maybe 4.2 lbs.

    I'll get my scale back in a few days and verify.

    I was right there with you thinking your estimate was correct.... I had to check the scale and rezero and weigh twice when I saw the weight. Casting with this thing makes it 'feel' like 5 lbs. But the bullets are so nice, I don't mind at all

    Appreciate it. I'll go weigh some of my brass molds and decide if want to go brass or aluminum.

    Just edit that post you made and tell if you want the 3-cav HP or 6-cav or 8-cav design and what type of bottom, Flat base or Gas Check.

    Then put a disguized email on there as well, and I'll add you to the list.

    BTW- Welcome to the forum, great to have new members. Let me know if I can help with anything at all!

    Done!

    Great news, just talked with Miha and he will be able to combine the 65 and 75g molds into the same pin configuration. These GB's just got sped up!!
