Anyone own a Lee 6-cavity in 9mm?

Recommended Posts

I have a Lee 6-cavity in .45 (.452) and really like the mold. Thinking about buying a 6-cavity in 9mm and would like to know if you are happy with the bullet style you have. My primary concern is feeding in general.

Only 9mm LEE mould I have is a CastBoolits group buy 380-100TC.It drops @ .358 and about 102gr from my alloy.LEE moulds work better than a lot of people think.Lee-menting is an option if you're handy with drilling and tapping stuff,Make the mould last longer.

I bought the Lee 356-125-2R six cavity mold. I'm much more impressed with the fit and finish on this mold than the 452-228-1R I bought a couple years ago. The 356-125-2R needs no adjusting and is ready to mold out of the box. When I bought the 452-228-1R the line-up pins weren't seated deep enough so the mold wouldn't completely close. I had to seat the line-up pins deeper into the mold with a hammer and drift. I'll give you some advice, do not even attempt to seat the pins deeper. Send the mold back to Lee and let them take care of the problem. It's darn near impossible to get these pins to move.

I'm impressed with the fit and finish of the new mold - good job Lee!

After casting with the new Lee 356-125-2R mold, I done with Lee forever. The mold throws bullets from 357.5"-360.0". There is just no excuse for such inconsistency. Yes, I could size them all to 356, but then they won't all weigh the same. Very frustrating indeed.
