    Default Casting and gas checks down under.

    I stopped using gas checks years ago.

    I keep my velocities under 1800FPS and put a dab of lithium grease on the base of each bullet before seating it in the case. Have never had a leading problem.

    Maybe just me but, I've never had good luck with mounting gas checks. I try and stay with plain based bullets in my handguns.
    The Original Point and Click interface was a Smith & Wesson.
