Got these in the mail today! Thank you very much Rick! I do believe I will be ordering the mold!

Traditions St.Louis Hawken .50cal 1:48 twist
Target: 50 yards
320gr REAL bullets, lubed with my anti rust lube
#11 CCI caps
Lubed Veg wad under the bullet.

80gr Pyrodex P

90gr Pyrodex P. Blame the shooter on that center bulls eye shot.

To me, It looks like the 80gr charge groups tighter, So I will try that again, but this time with a felt wad.

You're most welcome Jon and as we speak I have about 10 minutes until the pot is hot enough to cast up a small supply for me to try when, and if, I make it to the range again. 

I'm glad they shot well for you!

ETA:  Jon by chance did you cull the bullets by weight?  Of the batch I've just cast I've found that I'm having a 36% cull rate for weight. I culled based on a +or- 1.5grs.
