from the old forum, might have been posted by glt41:

I finally got to use my new mold -- and after break in casting -- I am getting really nice bullets -- since they are gc'd I weigh all of them and I weighed about 20 straight and they never varied any but like 252.2 252.3 252.1 -- I was impressed -- sized lubed they weigh 254-- -- now i must find time to shoot them -- they will be shot in a 5.5 Redhawk .41 and a Garry Reeder wildcat 41 gnr--- 41/44 also 5.5' RHawk both are scoped --it will be fun thanks again for the mold -- and you were right brass is heavy :D -- but I will live ----I will let you know how they shoot --when I get to shoot.

I have gotten good groups out of 41 mag mould also. 9 grains of Unique puts out inch and a half at 50 yards and 20.5 grains of lil gun does the same. My brass has to be trimed back a little because I over did it on driving band length but the accuracy is excellent on my 250 grain GC mould. I am very impressed with Dans moulds.
