We just started testing a new .50 BMG caliber gilding brass gas check. We borrowed a NOE 850gr .514 mold from rockrat on the cast boolits forum. We just sized one for the first time with a .104 tall .517 gas check. The bullet came out at 838 grains with a 50/50 wheel weight / linotype alloy mix sized to .512.
Here is a picture:
Our idea for this .50R gas check was to make it in a mid size so you won't need separate Short and Tall versions. Testing has just started, but the fit is very good. After using a gas check seater we can't pull them off by hand. So far, they have sized fine at .512 and .517 using a push through NOE bushing type sizing die.

The USPS shipping rates calculator has been charging higher than needed postage lately. We have been refunding the excess postage, but it doesn't look like the USPS software will be fixed anytime soon. Its been going on for too long, so we have decided to offer 3 tiered flat rate shipping that hopefully will simplify [...]
