That H&G mold appears to be in very good shape. Good find.....

Hope you have a mold guide on your pot. That puppy is going to get HEAVY......

Nice and shiney.......... Those look GOOD ! ! !

I think you are doing it wrong................

I start at the back hole (farthest from you) and with one continous pour steady push the mold forward. This only works well if you have a mold guide on the pot. The mold guide takes the weight of the mold off of you and holds the mold at a constant distance from the spout.

Flow rate is important with this method. As the pot gets lower I adjust the flow rate screw.

You will see my method (madness) Saturday....... :)

Loaded 38spl round............ S W E E T ! ! !

Big J. you are killing me......... I have almost 500 of your nice H&G 38cal bullets ready to load, but the 550 is setup for 40 S&W and I still have about 700 40cal bullets to size/lube and load. I need to find the TIME............ :(
