  1. After a first break in of ... review by Alex on 6/12/2017

    After a first break in of about 50 casts this nicely machined iron mold settled in and casts long runs of perfect bullets every session. It is important to adjust the sprue plate to minimum tension and use a large enough dipper to leave a large sprue to fill the base to a sharp edge. With an alloy of 95L, 2.5T, 2.5A the slugs drop at .459 diameter. Harder casts will drop at .460 to .461 diameter. I size to .457 for a .456 bore and with b.p. and subs have found them very accurate and consistent, carrying enough lube for a 30\" plus barrel.

  2. Dull cherry left deep ... review by Jim on 6/12/2017

    Dull cherry left deep grooves on the ogive. Bands are three different sizes. Base is .460, next is .457, next is .461 and top is .450. Same no matter what the alloy, that`s nice. I run them thru a .459 sizer. I like Lyman molds but this one was not their best effort. I vented the sprue plate to eliminate frosting as the mold heats up quickly. Bullets drop easily as with all my Lyman molds. I just ordered the Lyman 45 caliber 405 grain mold and hope the machining is better. If I had not spent my working life as a machinist I would not nit pick like this and give it one more star. Still working up a load with 1 1/2 Swiss.
