By now you all know how anal I am and that things that I don’t understand bother me. Case in point; I don’t understand why bullets don’t drop out of the mold round?
We’re only talking .0005 and that has no impact on accuracy even though .0005 diameter can make a difference in touching the lands or not touching the lands on a bore rider.
For me this happens with multiple single cavity brass molds from a custom mold maker. Assume the following
- #2 or Linotype from Roto-Metal
- Alloy and mold temperature is managed +/- 10 degrees.
- There is no indication of finning
- Molds consistently drop match quality bullets (200 to 230 grain) 70% of the time at +/- .1 and 90+ % of the time +/- .2 grain.
- And they shoot great.
Beagling other molds can give me >.001 difference and they shoot well so I know this question is kind of silly.
