I was finally able to get to the range and gather some velocity data using Ramshot True Blue by Western Powders. The two bullets used were the Lee 356-124-2R and the NOE HTC-358-133-RN. The lighter Lee bullets seemed to prefer a lighter charge while the heavier bullet from NOE preferred a higher charge. This goes […]
Today I'm going to test how well Ramshot True Blue flows through my powder measure.

Return of The 9mm Video! (NOE HTC358-133-RN Bullet Mold)
In today's video, I am powder coating my recent cast 9mm rounds. I am using Harbor Freight Red powder. I am having trouble with the powder sticking to the bullets. After watching several videos from authors of The Reloaders Network, I'm still not getting the results I want. All the rounds are usable, but they just don't look the best. Some have thin and thick spots, and some have bare spots. Factors such as weather, humidity, and types of plastic containers could be affecting my results. All the rounds were sized to .356 using a NOE Sizing Die.
Today is the day. First time casting bullets. I am using a Lee 4 20lb pot. A NOE HTC358-133-RN-BO5 2 cavity mould. I have several pounds of processed wheel weights that I will be using. My first session this morning, about 50% were acceptable, and the second session after lunch about 85-90% were looking good.
I recently cast up a bunch of bullets with my new NOE HTC358-133-RN mold for 9mm. These bullets cast at an average of 134 grains with my alloy. I have sized these to .358", and today I decided to test them from my 4" Taurus Model 66 loaded in both 38 special and 357 magnum.
I recently cast bullets for 9mm with the NOE HTC358-133-RN mold, powder coated them with Eastwood Lime Green, and sized them to .358". I am now working up a load with Alliant e3 powder, which is a challenge since there is no published load data for this or a similar bullet. I am shooting these from my Beretta 92S.

My first casting session with the NOE HTC358-133-RN two cavity mold for 9mm. This is also my first casting session with the PID I recently assembled.
Hey guys! Been a little since I made a “start to finish” video–and finally caught my breath a little from the busyness of summer, enough to throw together a video. I was actually searching my channel for my 9mm plinking ammo video a week or two ago, when I realized I never ended up editing […]
