Try a few, unsized and hand lubed. The soft lead may "bump up" if you keep velocity low.

I don't wanna chance it since the majority says that i would have problems. i ordered so solder from rotometals yesterday and i'll soon make some lyman #2 hoping for .430's from that mould. i have a .430 mold on backorder but who knows when i'll see it...
