    Finally after dozens of Email notifications that my item is in stock.
    I got to open the mail and see it was actually still in stock.

    Got me this.
    https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1...roduct-shipped-today-product-description-link

    Round nose 45acp Lee 6 cavity.

    Now I see one benefit to a cell phone you would get instant notification you could open.

    I just randomly check email on the desk top since I do not have a cell phone.

    I will be making these specifically for the Taurus 1911 and casting a bit harder than I do
    for the Hi-Points.
    Powder coating them also.
    Probably the Light Ford blue.

    The 1911 seems to smack the bullets nose into the top of the chamber and the SWC will feed
    more reliably if I set it deep enough.
    I do not like the accuracy of the SWC in that 1911 so I hope this profile will work better.

    Fun times ahead soon.

    I use a program called "POP peeper" to auto check email on my desktop computer. It's free unless you want the "pro" version. It can also send/receive email, but I only use it for notifications.

    You can set the time period between checks, and you can set it to open a small alert window that stays there until you close it. Also has sound options. It runs as an icon on the taskbar, and works fine on XP and gmail (you may have to change some settings on gmail).

    Congrats on the mold!

    My issue was I was no where near the house when i got emails telling me it was in stock.
    Last night I checked it and it was 45 minutes old but still in stock.
    After I ordered it and finished at the checkout it was still in stock.

    1 minute later it showed out of stock.
    I feel lucky.
