    I never see anyone write about the merits of the 240 grain Lee tumble lube in 44 caliber TL430-240-SWC. All I ever read is how great and accurate the Lyman 429421 240 cast bullet is when pushed to the highest velocity possible, which stresses shooter and the hand gun. I also read that great accuracy only seems to come from bench rest shooting. I never read about off hand shooting or rapid fire. As a result i wonder about what the real world difference between a lyman 429 421 mold and the Lee TL 430 240 swc.

    If someone would post pro and con of the Lee tumble lube molds I would greatly appreciate reading what you have to say.

    I use that one with Lyman #2 alloy in front of a load of Trail Boss. Shoots well. I also shoot the 429421 and 429244. Tumble lubing and no gascheck is quick and easy.

    Still trying to get the TL358 SWC working in my 586...
