    NOE molds

    Has anyone had any experience with NOE molds they would like to share?
    I am looking at their .576 Hodgdon mold?

    We love ours. We have it in .576 .578 and .580 each of them 4 cavity molds. They run a touch heavier than the RCBS skirmish minies but *shrug* no biggie and you have to give the 4 cavity ones a break every few pours cause when they heat up they can expand by a couple of thousandths but otherwise for casting in quantity they can't be beat. Their customer service is tip top too never had a problem. They cast clean so long as you properly prep them and as Raider said they will shoot better than we can hold them.

    I wish they did an old style or international style minie in 4 cavity cause I would get a set of those too.

    My one complaint: The base pin 'floats'. If you're not careful, it will sit in the mold at different heights, which results in variation in Over-All-Length (OAL) and bullet weight...

    Trick is to a) tap the mold gently before you clamp it tight to get the pin to drop to the bottom, and b) visually check the pin to make sure its flush with the bottom of the mold.

    The Rapine, etc molds have the base pin captured on both halves of the mold AND its fixed to the cross-bar...

    BOOTS,

    I have a RCBS that I think is new in the box...

    19 years ago as my Mentor walked me around the Suttler's I bought it from Jerry.

    Problem is those Colt Specials that I also bough were .580...

    OPPS.

    I will double check.

    Oh, and I am looking a on of their .32 Caliber 165 Grain Bullet for a center fire Maynard, I know they make a few but have yet to figure out which I should get.

    I have a 32-35 Maynard.

    David - You have touched upon something that I know a number of N-SSA members, and others, play with which of course is the CF Cartridge Maynard. Why don't you consider starting a new thread about them, including the mould you are looking for, etc.? Just a thought rather than have your post buried here under another topic.
