You can add tin or antimony to allow for supersonic. Or using appropriate powder.

Lee makes the best molds. It takes talent to do two at a time, I recommend one.

Didn't know how an auto would handle it. In my CAS days we just turned our vaqueros to a 11 degree forcing cone and had no leaf issues. I would think the feed ramp wouldn't like lead.

I ended up buying a 2 cavity lee mold. The trick to it is keeping the mold close to the burner so it gets preheated.

with lee bullet lube. being that its a single stage the OAL isn't affected.
