I totally understand the appeal of being able to use a single mold for all but I'd likely still be getting a different flat-point mold throwing heavier specifically for the LC.

If for some reason you can't slug it, I'd just buy the coated and...

Most welcome, sir - I know it can be a pain but it really is worth the trouble to fiddle with it a while and get it set properly.
