Here is what I am willing to do. I am willing to do a free give away of 100 cast hollow points, in .358' or .452"...sized and lubed, or naked. Unfortunately, I am unable to provide gas checks for either size, but can cast them in either plain base or gas check (if you have the gas checks).

I would say that to qualify, all contestants must make at least one post in the casting forum for that month. All users that qualify would be entered by myself and drawn at random via the(name in a box)method, by my lovely assistant(My 14yr old daughter). Winner would be posted at that time and must forward mailing address info. Limit to one winning per user per calender year. ... Preferably actual useful posts...I can help you out with shipping cost and lead/if needed.
Per I C H the contest will start today for the remainder of this month. Any posts in the casting forum starting today will count for the contest. Any user posting in this forum will be automatically entered in the contest. One winner per month. Two runner up names will be drawn at the same time so that in the event that the winner does not want the accept his winnings the next in line will be notified. Winners will only be allowed one win per calender year(I think that is only fair to give others a chance.)

Members will have 72 hours from the time posted as winner to claim. After that you forfeit and the alternate/runner-up will be next in line.

Reason why I have a problem with it is Staff has the judgment call on editing/deleting posts that don't follow board rules. Having a "judge" in cahoots with the contest is, IMO, a conflict of interest and I don't want it to be unfair for regular members.

Thank you for this opportunity. I don't have a HP mould for the 38Spl, would be neat to make some FBI loads.

Do those hex hollow points mushroom or expand better than the round hole ones?
Does it split right down those lines?

Reloader...yes, if your alloy is proper for your velocity. I haven't done any expansion tests yet, but have heard (and seen pictures of) guys having great results running 8-9 BHN alloy around 800-900 FPS (45acp).

It`s really a balancing act between BHN & velocity to get a good expandin load & the HP not shatterin , splinterin or just collapsing on itself.

This is where a chronograph really pays for itself in load development !!!

No, that would be shenanigans.

Do you have any pics of expanded or shot 45's?

No I do not have any pics of the expanded slugs. If you win the contest you can make your own expanded slugs, though.
