HP'd another one...

Well, I couldn't leave it sitting on the bench any longer without doing something about it... Especially since so many others have been receiving special attention! That AK mold was just calling to me to make one cavity do something different...



Lee TL 312-160-2R
With a GC the original actually finishes at 173gr. This one is likely closer to the 160gr. NOW. I didn't even throw it on the darn scale to see what they finish at. I guess I'll do that tomorrow--the really interesting part of the mod is over. Can't wait to go play with this one...

That's really cool looking! I'm using the Lee 155's for my CZ.

I'm actually more interested to see what they'll do in my Mosin than the AK. One other thought that came to mind now is that I technically have a flat point, so-to-speak. I think I have a new Paper Patch trial for my .32 Win Spl... I guess I could say I'm diversifying my molds...
