Yep , all three molds in the bigger sizes. Getting sized correctly has and is quite a learning process that I'm still working on. I'm still getting into the odd flyer probably due to the way I cast them.

Had a chance to sneak in a few rounds today with my jkhan noblesse .22. I had previously shot the 30g bbt sized at 217 nose and 219 rear drive band. Ok accuracy to 50 yards but I felt they could definitely do better. I ordered some sizing dies from noe for my .25 and one for the .22 in 216.. sounds a bit small I know. The lothar walther is 215 lands 221 groves... but is also choked. So I sized down a few and ran down to the range. Definitely tighter groups, on par with my shooting the 18 jsb... with the open reticle, not a scope.
 The picture below is 5 shots, three in the same hole...winds, nnw @ 11 mph with higher gusts, open reticle. When I can, I'll get a .217 sizing die and try that also, but I must say I am very encouraged with the new results. That group is a bit less than the size of  a dime.

Thank you Mr. Bob...yes sir, 50 yards. I'm very happy once again with these bbt. NO doubt they will do better with a scope. I shoot your bbt design in my 357, 25, 22 and my 308.

Here are some groups from today. The conditions were less than ideal but this is great for real work tests . 15 MPH to 30 mph gusty wind at my back .They were shot at 850 fps regulated with an ES of 30 fps over a chrony through a LW barrel . The bullets are unsized at .220 “ the barrel slugs at .221” . Shot at 100 yards verified with cheap rangefinder. I’ve been having mixed results with these as cast . I think the cold (- 10 C) the bullets hardened and helped with accuracy. I’ve been using a 40:1 mix but it would appear I should change the mix a bit maybe to 35:1 lead /tin. The target with the two 5 shot groups and one ten shot were sight ins at 50 yards to start. I should add that this was shooting from the tailgate of my pick up resting on a UTG grip pod. To say I’m extremely happy is an understatement. I cherry picked the best of 6 target papers shot at 100 .

I should also mention that I lapped the barrel to remove any of the tight spots prior to shooting . This probably helped .
