    If you cast, you must slug the barrel.
    go 0.001-0.002" over grove diameter.
    .358 in TCP and PT111G2
    .402 in PT140 G2
    .310 in Savage 308 win.
    .357 in S&W M28


    That 95 gr RNFP cast pure and hollow pointed is great from the TCP

    Do you size then PC?
    Or cast then PC?
    Because you just might be putting .358 bullets in those cases.

    So how do you make your PT111G2 boolits? Cast to .358 then PC to .379-.380 following Sizer to .359?

    As I begin research to embark on an adventure in, casting I've been doing a LOT of reading and video watching. Looks like the proper method is to cast, quench, powder coat, bake, quench the fresh baked PC boolits in H2O then run them through the proper sizing die. Most important is to slug your barrel to learn the actual diameter you need to size your boolits to and purchase a sizing die accordingly.

    In my case, I shoot too many of the same caliber from multiple guns so I'm planning on finding a happy medium...at first, in any case...
