Showin off the new .45's

New Lee mold. They dropped clean and formed well. Weight was very close to advertised at 228gr. I loaded these with Accurate #7 which gives the best velocity for this weight.

Yup, that's what mine look(ed) like. They started getting fins when the steel roll locating pin smushed out the aluminum groove. The new molds are supposed to have a different pin design to prevent this.
