A new 38 / .357 Mold

I am about to start casting for the good ole wheel gun and am not sure what to get for a bullet mold. I run my magnum loads hot so I think I'm going to get a gas checked mold, rather than deal with making some super expensive alloy. Is this a good idea? Should I get the mold that has a gas check grove cut into it or should i crimp on the checks? I am using lee size kits if that makes any difference.

I would like to use the same mold for the 38s and .357s, but if I get the gas checked mold, will the gas check groove cause leading in the 38 spl? Thanks.
