15 years ago or so I purchased a Master Caster, Star
Luber & a few moulds. One of the moulds was the Saeco
928. This mould laid dormant for several years. I did
make one run of these for Jim Taylor of sixgunner.org
fame for his 92 Winchester clone.

Several years ago I purchased a PreB CZ75. I didn't
purchase a mould for this handgun as I wasn't sure I
would keep it so I used the Saeco 928 in the Master
Caster & laid in a good supply of bullets for the CZ. I
sized these .358 & lubed with LBT Blue Soft or Carnauba
Red.

I loaded several hundred of these in mixed 9MM brass
with 3 grains of Promo. I went through them like corn
through a goose. The next batch I decided to up the load
to 3.5 grains & the load remains the same today.

Shortly after purchasing the CZ a S&W 67-1 came my way.
I decided to try this same bullet in the Smith. Again I
loaded a couple hundred with 3 grains of Promo. These
shot well but needed a little more pressure so the next
batch I increased the load to 3.5 grains & it remains
there today.
The little bullet is plenty accurate & feeds well
through the CZ & also with speedloaders in the Smith. I
like the bullet. It falls from the mould at .359-.360
depending on alloy. It weighs 147 grains mostly.

I have used it in a Smith M&P Pro 5", a Smith Compac 9
& a couple Model 10s. IMHO it is a great bullet & I'm
happy. Here's some pictures for your viewing pleasure &
I'll be happy to field questions or commits.

That's just COOL! I'D be inclined to push them a little bit harder, though not at the sacrifice of accuracy. I'm also a big fan of Alliant Promo for those two cartridges.

Well I hope to have a setup as nice and neat as yours shortly. I am in the
process of moving all the reloading stuff out of the house and into my brand
new man cave in the back yard.. Carol wanted her loft and library back.

It would be to much like a Ken Burns documentary, by the time I got it all
in. One thing about it tho it has convinced me that selling the ranch and
moving to some nice retirement place where the weather is always good and
all that rot, ain't gonna happen.
