I have had some e-mail correspondence with him. He seems eager to please and gave me an approximate time line of developing a new mold of about a week. His blocks certainly look good in his pictures. I thought his sprue plates looked a little thicker than are common so asked. They are thicker and are made of an aluminium alloy (apparently an NRA recommendation after some testing by them). I'm not sure what darkens them, perhaps a hard anodize. I intend to order at least one mold if he develops what I requested. Seemed like a pretty good head.

mountain molds

Am placing my money order in the mail tomorrow for his newly developed 348 mold. His design has the biggest meplat I've seen on a 348 and as long as it feeds O.K. it should deliver a pile of impact. Probably be about a month before I receive it so will bring you up to date when I receive and test it.

My 348 mold and sizer and top punch arrived today. I elected to try a brass mold this time. The workmanship where it counts appears to be first class. Nicely radially vented on one block only but I'm sure it will be effective. Dan says it drops wheel weights at 229 grains which should be a good compromise weight. It appears that when crimped in only a small portion of the gas check will be below the base of the neck.

Dan spent quite a bit of time planning this mold for me and I think he's done a first rate job.

Hope to fire up the pot this week so will advise further after casting and shooting the bullets.
