Anyone got a starting load recommendation for H110/W296?


I shoot a Penn Bullet 180 grain with a similar profile and they are stable to at least 100 yards.

Al at NOE is getting ready to put this mold on sale tomorrow. All his designs have been retitled to help with his new web store that will be up and running soon. This design will now be the 360-182-WFN U1. It is offered as both a gas check and plain base design. There is also a hollow point version, the 360-182-HP, with both base styles as well. I just did all the images and data for him. If you don't get his weekly email, the rotating banner at the bottom of each page on the forum will take you to the sale once posted (usually sometime Tuesday).

Is the basic drawing the same as the one on their website now?

Guess my 360-180-RF is a weird duck. Everyone else has the WFN.

Your bullet has become the 360-183-RF AJ5, there are both CG and PB versions.

Thanks for updating. It's bad to the bone so now others can buy the mold. I've sent samples to several.

What's AJ5 mean?

Makes sense it went to 183 as mine are 186-188 once lubed and checked.

Funny that you mention those characters; it is a bin number so that the guys don't make a mistake when they pull the mold for shipping. NOE has 800 designs, each with multiple options, I think a total of 6,000+ different molds. When I was helping him figure out how to better organize the designs, I noticed that he had inserted these unique characters on every different design drawing. I suggested that he just make them part of the designation so that info would be directly visible on the order for the customer and his staff. For a small business, an order mistake is a killer. You might as well had sent the mold for free.

Threw some loads together today with the bullets I posted and 14.5gr H110. Needless to say I was pleased with the results. Flawless feeding and great accuracy. I haven't slugged the barrel of the .357 yet but it seemed to do just fine with bullets sized to .358. I'll be honest this doesn't seem like a max load in my rifle, I need to get it over a chronograph to know for sure.
