    I think I am going to order it with a larger meplat of .2

    Anyone have suggestions on that?

    Eradicator,
    The dimensions I gave Tom were from bullets made from an early 319295 mold. No doubt, since back then mold cherries were hand made, there would have been some variances in the different cherries made.

    I think going with a .20" meplat would be just fine and dandy.

    Thanks for the help.

    I already got the mold in from Accurate. It got here incredibly fast. I ordered it on Thursday night, so for all intensive perspirations it was really Friday morning and it got here on Monday, or at least that's when I found out about it. I was planning on ordering all the other casting stuff I'll need this week and thought it would all be here about the same time, but now it looks like I have the cart but my horse is lost somewhere. That's a good problem I suppose. Not that I know the first thing about molds, but it looks pretty good.

    I've made some nice looking bullets with that mold already. Took a few tries to get it figured out, but seems to be going pretty good now. The whole first batch went back in the pot. I'm still having some trouble getting the back cavity to fill out the base all the way but it seems to do fine once it gets hot and if I just keep pouring. Weights are from 182.2 to 183.2. I am very happy with the mold so far. This is my first try casting.

I've been shooting the 8 m.m. Mauser round nose bullet ( 165 grain at .323") which is also gas checked but I'd like a flat nosed bullet.

    I just got some 170 grain RNFP .323 from Meister bullets. I havent tried them in my 32-40 yet which also slugs to .321, but I will next range trip. The .322's didn't shoot bad, but I think this gun can do better as it has a beautiful bore.

    Every mold is custom. You can specify a minimum diameter. So you could tell him to make it .323 and it will come out .323 up to .3245. His tolerance in -0 to +.0015". Your mold might throw them at .323, mine is a .322 and they drop at .322, but most likely you would need to get a lube sizing die that is .323, then if it is oversize it doesn't matter.

    That bullet looks like my 38-55 bullet. No crimp groove. Were the original lead round mostly without a crimp groove? On the 38-55 I crimp in the last lube ring which worked perfectly with the short 38-55 brass.

    Now that I look at the Accurate Mold bullet again I guess that is a crimp groove? Isn't it?

    Yes, the top groove is the crimp groove.
