New molds and sizers are on their was from NOE. I'll now be able to cast and size bullets in .357 ,.25 and .22 calibers.
I've been using two .357 molds one is a 105 grain SWC that drop at .358" and the other is a 126 grain BBT that drops at .360 both will need to be sized for my barrel that slugs out at .350/.357. Unfortunately I haven't shot the BBT's because they don't chamber , the 105 SWC have only been tested short range and are almost as good as the jsb pellets . Should be just as good once sized.
The .25 I've been casting are the 51 grain BBT with HP in one cavity. I've been sizing them to .254 (slightly bigger) with descent results able to hit a paint can at 180 yards . Hoping to size them to .253 with better luck and do some proper testing /paper punching. Waiting for the 41 grain mold and will size the same as the 51 grain.
Last but not least is the 30 grain BBT in .22 cal . I have slugged two barrels and both were bigger than suggested air rifle barrel spec (217/218) and are actually 215/221. Should be noted that one is a crosman barrel and the other is a Lothar Walther from Sniper Dan.

Another big step for me , no longer being dependant on pellet manufacturers . Lots of testing coming up.
