      Thanks JB, lead you up the garden path sorry, they are cast bullets, not swaged.

      An old friend of mine makes them down in Adelaide, Sth Australia - Spartan http://spartanprojectiles.boxhost.me/index.html) they are 357 diam.

      No, the top of the projectile is 1/8th below, fills a lot of airspace up. Probably why only Win cases will fit, a lot thinner walls on the brass than other manufacturers.

      Gun is a S&W mod 14 with an Apex barrel 1-8 twist .355. I have had the gun for some 15 years now, built by a friend of mine who has built more than he would like to admit. The cylinder has nice tight chambers (and one not so) which works well.

      I normally shoot 24 shot groups and are comparable to what you saw, I couldn't find one to show but have always said to myself that one cylinderful at a time in 4 different positions is the match.

      Crimp die is an old RCBS that I have had for 20 plus years now.

      cheers
