Just got a noe mold(243) that makes one plain base and one gas check bullet. I'm looking for some suggestions on load data for red dot or unique and blue dot. I would appreciate any help with this. Thank you so much.john or maybe 2400

Lyman Cast Bullet Handbook lists up to 12 grain of Red Dot for their 245496 83 grain bullet as a max.  I seem to recall that I used 10 grains of RD back in the day and had good luck.  But I don't remember what mold. Ten grains the max for the 95 grain 245498, so I think I am safe.  Start low as usual. Many shooters find that less than max loads are the most accurate.  YMMV

This spring I intend to try my new RCBS 243-95-SP.  My second keg of RD is long gone, so I will try Trail Boss to begin with.

I thought about trail boss powder as well. But I think I'm going to start with the red dot. Thanks for your reply..
