That is perfect:-D, Thank you.

I was able to find my RCBS Mould (refrenced in earlier) and was able to cast a few and with a little tweaking achieved a weight of 348 grains for a bullet length of .902 and a bullet diameter of .501 as cast, they are very heavily skirted .120 thick walls, misplaced my depth gauge, so I can't give an exact measure, but it is about .280 +-.

I hope to find time to get out to the range and put some on paper provided they got a snow plow down the road, if not I'll make sure the cattle and horses aren't behind the house and shoot off the back porch, living out in the country has some nice advantages :)

Now, she who must be obeyed has spoken and it's off to the mall to face the rampaging Christmas/Holiday hordes......
