    Yep. I don't need it, but I must have it.

    .359 size plus PC = no go for me. Wish it was in .357

    If it's not suppressed the powdercoat is probably a waste of time anyways... ;)

    In all seriousness, he did say in that thread they're planning a no lube groove version soon.

    I have this profile in another mould with the HP pins. It easily sizes to .357.

    I powercoat mine and then size them to .357 with a Lee push through sizer. Works fine. Either straight WW, 50/50 WW and lead, or just WW sweetened with pure lead.

    Fyi...Mihec just put this quick turn around group by up. It's the same bullet profile ad the last one, without the line groove, and at. 357 instead of .359.

    Alas, I just bought RCE swage dies to make 458 bullets, no Mihec mold for me today. Though with the deal I got it was a smoking good buy :) I'll be making 458 bullets from 45 acp soon. Should have gotten in on the core casting group buy though.
