I agree with NitWitt, mine makes balls out of round but they still shot fine.
I haven't tried them past 50 yards.

They are much less expensive than Callahan molds. Anyone have any experience using them?
I have several. I don’t know how round they are, mathematically, but they are round and shoot very well in both my rifles and smooth bores. I have some from Smiling Fox Forge, as well. They also make good balls. I would not use the sprue cutter on them. I did that once and that made it a little loose. I just make a few strokes with a large file to smooth off the sprue.

I've got a couple of their bag moulds, and they work well enough for me to have taken a deer and a passel of smaller critters with the balls I've cast. Good enough, I guess. Especially compared to some of the originals I've seen!

A lot of the bag molds on the market will cast perfectly usable balls. The only problem comes from the heat, the handles can get pretty hot. Wrap the handles in leather tugs or wear gloves.
