.432 200 gr tumble lube mold .im using straight stick on ww. im having bullets ranging from .429 to .437.
Something is badly wrong with that mold. Either that, or your measuring device is messed up.

A 45 TL/tumble lube mold should drop at .452, not .429. That's what a 44 mag mold should drop at.

I know that lee says to use bullet lube on the locator pins and sprue plate. Also they say to smoke their molds, I do not do that! I use sprue plate lube sold by a guy over on the cast boolits forum, called bullplate. It leaves a high temp film of lube on the mold and wear points.

Re-measure your bullets and get back to us.

They're going to get their butts kicked over there this election. How come people can't spell and use words correctly?
