I have been buying bullet molds for last couple of years here and there. The last one came in last week from a group buy that was started over 6 months ago. (You guessed it, I payed for it 6 months ago as well... LOL) Been doing a little playing around and goofing off and here are a few results.
HiMec 475 Cal 385gr HP. www.handgunhunt.com/photopost/data/545/image30.jpg [/img] Left To Right: 1) Same 475 as above. 2) 44 Cal 265gr Ranch Dog Mold design-NOE copy with HP's. The only Gas Check in the bunch. 3) Lyman 429421 44 Cal 245gr. Another NOE mold RG4 Hollow Point Mold. 4) 45cal 235gr for my 45 ACP
The best thing about the HP molds I bought is that I can also change the pins out and cast standard bullets. Truly they are multipurpose molds.

Stop tellin' everyone, Fermin!! He's already so backlogged it's been over a year and we ain't got our .32 'sledgehammer', yet. And I've got two more ordered, a .357, and a .429, so stop it. His molds ain't worth a plug nickel.

When casting with NOE 4 cav 32 HP's I am finding it is difficult to keep the big aluminum mould up to temp to get the fill out needed around the nose.
There is a very small amount of up and down play possible with the NOE HP pins. You have to have the blocks in the same position when you close them to get the pins back to exactly the same position every time.
No play in the pins with Miha's moulds and it is easier to maintain temp in brass blocks.
