    I wasn't "voting for" anything. Just sharing what I do.

    Could only pick 2?
    I load 9MM 147 Gr FN and RN, and 135 gr FN, I've toyed with a few others in 9MM but I'm liking these better.
    In 38/357 I'm loading 150 RNFP, 150 SWC, 158 SWC, and 158 RN.
    In 45 ACP 200 Gr SWC
    In 30 Cal I'm loading 160 FP and will load 160 RN soon.

    I want to get a decent 9MM that drops around 125 or so.

    I cast for all the centerfires I reload. Some I just shoot more, depending on how I feel and the gun; I have a High-Point 45 ACP that I shoot like my 10-22, a lot. My bolt 308 only gets a box or two each session and revolvers are shot a bit less than my pistols...

    My two most used cast bullet sizes:
    158 grain SWC (12, 15, & 18 brinnel)
    240 grain SWC (chose other for this bullet) (12 & 18 brinnel)
