    I have a 4-cavity mold for the Elmer Keith .44 mag bullet, but don't have any handles to fit it.

    Beautiful! The only thing I like better is when they're .429/430" and weigh 255-265 grs.

    Used in both 38 special for practice in a S&W model 10 & 19 and Colt trooper III & detective special & 357 magnum loads for hunting in a Marlin lever gun
