In the plus column, the Lee 200gr RNFP mould in .452" has proven to be a miracle mould. It seems that it can do no wrong in both my .45Colt and 45ACP. Despite the single small lube groove, there's no signs of lube failure at all. I can only surmise that the bullet shape with the rounded design lends itself to an easy entrance into the forcing cone. The nose is quite flat and wide giving almost SWC-like performance. Yet it feeds well in an unaltered G.I. style 1911A1 that frankly, surprised me.

Over the years I used to be really hard on Lee moulds and refused to use em and smashed em or threw em into the woods when they failed. However, the new ones with all the fancy swirling vents and steel alignment pins, really made em useful. They've come a long way from the crappy stuff they were selling a while back.

With the overwhelming success of the 200gr RNFP I'm going to invest in the 250gr RNFP mould after a bit. I know that it goes against my consolidation program, but I just gotta get one for true tradition weight.45Colt loads.

You are out of line, walking away from the plan, making
the wrong turn at the light, getting off the freeway,
pulling your oars from the water, giving in to temptation,
& shooting the low flying bird (what).

I like the looks of that Lee 250 also.

Quite right Lynn. Must avoid distractions. Must remain focused...
