Al Nelson,
Were you able to make the "Cherry" for this mold buy so it could b eused for either the TL255-50-RF OR the TL255-65-RF design ?

As you may remember, I requested this idea both via Post, email , and telephone calls; and you said you would consider it when you ordered the tooling made.

I do Hope you were able to do that and run my second reserved mold as a TL255-65-RF 65 Grain Mold.

'Puttering' with "QuickLOAD" software and RD TL255-65-RF in a .612" long .25ACP case using .905" OAL and With Unique propellant it indicates a 1.9 grain charge would yield about 1124fps out of a 12' Solid barrel and about 1100fps out of my Custom Ruger .25ACP Single Eight Revolver due to the Cylinder-forcing cone gap pressure losses.

Interesting Results!

After the New Year Holiday I contacted Al at NOE via telephone and in the course of the conversation he indicated he would look at the possibility of designing a form tool to cut BOTH the TL255-50-RF design and the TL255-65-RF Design Cavities so perhaps it might save some Charges on the Second Design.

There is also the possibility NOE will be going forward on this Group buy in 2018 even if all ten of the Minimum buy are not yet committed.

I am hoping for positive results.

Al,
"Ranch Dog" graciously drew up a extended Length TL255 that he calculates will drop at about 64 Grains.  I am copying the drawing here:

(RD) Group Buy Discussions / Re: Ranch Dog 255-50 RF

correct link: http://noebulletmolds.com/smf/index.php/topic,1897.0.html

As of my last look the Active Group buy has 7 listed; out of 10 needed.

I have queried Al about  an extended Machine program to drop around 65 grains by adding an additional driving band and lube groove.  Michael was kid enough to draw it up as his RD TC255-65-RF design, which is shown on the active group buy thread toward The End.

IF it is possible to combine the Two on one on the group buy, I would LOVE to get a second mold for the 65 grain bullet in addition ot my first one for the 50 grain bullet.

Best Regards,
Chev. William

I Want a Four cavity Mold (Aluminum).

Is there any chance of a Slightly Longer Version of this design to Cast  at about 60 to 65 Grains?

Chev. William

I am still waiting for a Review of the Programming required and answer if it is a 'Doable' request.

I would like a Mold to drop a 65 to 69 grain (67 grain preferred) of the Basic TL255 Design so it can be sized down to .250"-.252" for use in loading .25ALR, .25ALS, and .250ALRM 'Mildcats'.  The .25ALR is .960 case length; the .25ALS is 1.125" case length; and the .250ALRM is 1.250" case length with Case diameters like the .25ACP and .25Stevens.

A couple of/few years ago I was Able to buy some TL256-50-RF Cast bullets from "Carolina Cast Bullets" but the Company has been Closed since.
The TL256 does Swage down to .253" and still has Lube grooves visible (when Tumble Lubed Before swaging) after the sizing process.

Ranch Dog posted that his TL255 Design is intended For Sizing down to fit the Tightest Bore/Groove .25ACP dimensions while the TL 256 Design was intended for the Slightly Oversize Barrel dimensions of Taurus and other semi-auto pistol makers.

I am Hoping that the Machining Program will Allow Addition of another Lube groove And Drive band to the Base for the added weight.

Best Regards,
William J. Stewart ETC USN Retired

Would NOE also make a Seating Stem to fit this Bullet design for the Lee Precision .25ACP Seating / Crimping die?
If so, i would like Two of the Seating Stems added to my Order.

Best Regards,
