I've been dabbling with casting lately and have been having real good luck with the Lee aluminum molds in 9mm and .38 special. I'm staying real basic right now and have been casting the tumble lube type bullets. I just cast, tumble lube with liquid Alox, load and shoot. I bought a Lee .45 230gr. LRN tumble lube mold last week and cast a bunch, lubed and loaded last night. The Lee book has a general 230gr. lead round nose category and lists 4.0 gr. of Bullseye with min. COL of 1.190. After loading some at this length, I don't like the way they look. They look set down too far into the case. I even left them a little long at like 1.193. They drop into the chamber of my Springfield Loaded nicely. I also fed some dummy rounds through and they feed great with no set-back. I experimented and made a dummy round with the shoulder of the bullet even or just a hair below the case mouth so it "looks good". Measured 1.26 OAL at this point. Dropped into the chamber good, but feeding is an issue. It fed OK, but the nose of the bullet is hitting hard, I would guess on the top of the chamber, so it leaves a mark on the bullet and there is set-back. I'm a little nervous with the bullet set down so low in the case. 4.0 gr. of Bullseye is a pretty light charge though. I'm running 5.2-5.5 gr. Bullseye on my 230gr FMJ loads at about 1.27 OAL. Am I OK with these? Anybody else load them so they look this way?
