Starting a thread to see how many of us are out there and maybe start an exchange . Here’s a list of what I have and a brief description of how they shoot.
.22 caliber
NOE 30 gr BBT
They drop at .221”
They shoot well ( under 1”) out to 50 yards through BT65 , K550 and benji 392 ( steroid kit)

.25
NOE 41 gr BBT (HP one cavity)
They drop at .256”
They shoot Ok ( 2” ) out to 50 yards through BT65 (working on it )

NOE 51 gr BBT ( HP one cavity)
They drop at .257”
I get lots of flyers ( still working on it)

.257
Arsenal 257420 70 gr
They drop at .258”
Sub MOA through a TJ’s 1:14 barrel
Arsenal 257388 85 gr
They drop at .259”
Sub MOA through a TJ’s 1:14 barrel

.357
Lyman 105 gr SWC
They drop at .360”
Not tested
Accurate molds 126 gr BBT
They drop at .360
Not tested

Neither of the .357 have been tested as I no longer have a rifle to shoot them from ( I’ll be changing that soon ;)). I’d really like to try some more .22 and .25 bullets . I have a .22 mold coming from NOE and have signed up for a group buy on a .25 mold . I’d love to hear about what others are doing and how their bullets are shooting .

I only have one air gun specific set of mould blocks (81 others). This one is made by NOE, and is .25 cal.,

casting .250" nose with .2525" base ring above the BT and casting 51gr. It is 4 cavity and will never leave

my possession until I decide to sell it. I use it in 6-cavity Lyman handles. It will not fit my 4-cavity handles.

Well , I though for sure there would be more than two people here on the forum that cast for their air rifles . I might post an add in the for sale section to see if there is any more interest. Just have to figure out what a fair price would be .

I'm starting soon to cast for 9mm ( PB ) I might down the road cast for heavier 177 pellets.
