    Ahh, the LEE TL boolits. they are great boolits but must not be hotrodded. They are both bevel base designs which are not the best choice for revolvers, but they work well if velocities are kept moderate. Id suggest between 800-900 fps for both loads, that 230 gr TC boolit is actually meant for the .45ACP (lack of a proper crimp groove) but if you seat them just over the ogive you can crimp over it for use in revolver rounds. Unique is a great powder for both of those rounds and so long as velocities are kept between 8 and 9 hundred i think youll find very accurate and enjoyable target loads...

    Well guys-I think I'm gonna take a little pinch of this advise and
    a little dab of that advise.Put it in a pot,stir it up and go make
    some bullets.I know I have come to the right place for making and
    shooting cast bullets. I've made mistakes,but you guys have trouble shooted
    them.I appreciate your time and your knowledge.I can't put a
    price on that.Let's go burn some powder.Bayhawk
