I am going to try it in the CVAs. I picked the mold up cheap and in good shape. Just found a pair of old Lee handles and a Max's 54 mold #119 @ the local gun Again in good condition. We will see.

My new 6 cavity Lee .526 mold arrived today and I have already thrown a few down range. Balls from this mold have virtually no sprue and while I usually load sprue up these are so small I will experiment with these to see if orientation makes any difference with accuracy.

The initial group at 50 yards out of the Rice barrel is looking promising. This was a hunting load of 110 grains Swiss FF, .015" patch and mutton tallow lube.
