I'm still amazed that the 350 grainers shoot in the slow twist.

A 444 Marlin loaded with 300 - 350 grain hard cast should be enough gun for anything in North America ??????? But that's just me.

I've been fooling with the new Ranch Dog 432-350GC test mold and it's been giving me some really really good groups in the slow twist Micro barrels pushed hard with H322 behind water quenched WW bullets .

You are right about the 300-350 being capable enough for NA . However I kinda like playing with cast in the 444 for some reason . Lord knows the nine 444's I shoot cast in handle what I have given them very well .

So I am still of the opinion that I would like Olle's design in a 400 grainer for my ballard rifled ones and a 375 grainer for trial in my Micro Groove rifles . And of course if my theory is incorrect I can alwasy shoot them in the ballard rifles . ;)

Okay I went on and bit the bullet !

I made "what I think" is a close facsimali of Olle's 433-400GC design and a 375 grain version of the same basic design .

Now all i have to do is weight for the bullet master to make and ship them to me ;)

Once I recieve them it's my intention to try them both in one or more of my 444's !

I assume those are the two molds I ordered last week :D

Looks like they turned out very nicely !

Should I expect them this week or early next week ?
