    Could not help myself, followed me home from the local gun show. Didn't need it, but I just want to cast and shoot some from this mold. $60+$7 entry was well worth it.

    Cool.

    Yeah,,,, you're addicted all right.
    You better keep a low profile too.
    We don't want to see you getting dragged off to some re-hab place on the interdiction TV show.

    I just liked it. Got a Taurus .38 Special and a 1959 Colt .357 Magnum to try them in with reduced loads.

    Great find! It's only an addiction if you cant stop when you want too or it starts to negatively effect your life. Problem is once you start... do you ever truly want to quit?




    Nope

    Nice! I'm beginning to gravitate toward 3 and 4 cavity moulds for the best combination of fast production and manageable weight. I've got a few 6 cavity moulds, but they are all aluminum and don't see much use anyway.

    What kind of recipes have you found for loading those WCs you'll get out of that mould? Something like the standard Bullseye loads I've used for years with 148 gr HBWCs? (light loads of Bullseye, 231, 700X)

    Another addict with a #50 here,found it two years ago in Ebay for a strange price. I thought it was scam but no.

    I also have a four cavity #130 that I got 20 years ago. My treasures,cast great.

    You got out light at $67. My last trip cost me $900 just because I have a mold to match the gun I bought. I told MamaMurf that I was going to the show just to see some old buddies. SURE.....she said. I think she is going to start patting me down when I come home from a show, LOL.

    Great deal! It’s not hard to accumulate molds, at least not for me.

    And people ask me why I insist on parking my truck in front of our detached garage/shop where it is between
    the truck and the house. I keep it cluttered enough so Mrs. Winger doesn't even want to look inside out of fear
    that something will jump out onto her.

    I guess we will see you in the church basement for the 12 step meeting.
    guess I'm right there with you, if I had seen that at a gun show I would have done the same with no hesitation.

    Well since no one else has offered to help you Slim, I will. Just send that mold to me and I will take good care of it for you.

    H&G molds are a pleasure to cast with.
