Thank you all for this product and the video!

     I am still a novice caster and made a mistake last month and thought I was doing well. I was trying to blend a 94-4-1 alloy and made about 200 45-70 bullets using my 460- 398 RF NOE mold. When I measured them they were at .463. I tied using my Lee push through sizer but it is  .458 and they jammed in the die. Did I mention they were hard?  I tried harder and tore my press off the bench (NB: I am not overly strong, so this is a good example of leverage and the strength of the little$50 Lee Reloader press).

    I ordered the NOE sizing die and the .459 bushing, which is what I needed as my Marlin's groove diameter is .458.  As these bullets were still hard, I heat treated them at 425 degrees for twenty minutes. When they (air) cooled down I put them through the NOE sizing die mounted on my Redding Ultra Mag. They sized perfectly to .459! No mess, no fuss, no strain on my back or the bench. I re-checked a random twenty rounds and they were all .459. This product is a winner!

A couple of days ago I cast up 482 of the 250-27-RF with the next size pin and the pellets turned out great on the second go around because I had to readjust the pins but when all was said and done they turned out really good, I used them on a squirrel hunt yesterday basically to see how they were shooting and they're just as accurate as the 26 grain ones were, they might even be a little better for long distance too.
Very happy with this mold, it's right at the top of the list of my favorites.

Any idea when this will move up?

Never heard of anyone using a Gas check on an airgun.... so I presume you are talking powderburner?.... Glad to hear they cast nicely, haven't had a chance to try my moulds yet....

Yes, this bullet is probably going to skip the group buy phase and go into production.  Waiting for Al to catch up on current group buys, then should be able to get this mold cut.

Never saw any movement on these in the group buy discussion. Is there still any interest. I have been waiting to purchase a 300 blk mold to start casting for my new sub gun.
