    Jack--

    That appears to be a GC bullet--could he make it PB also ?

    ia1727,
    Yes, the 319295 was / is a gas chaecked bullet for the 32-40. Yes, Tom could offer it without a gas check.
    Lyman offers a similar plain based bullet ....319247....but the diameter might not be to your specifications.

    The great thing about Accurate Molds is you can get them any way you want them. Plain Base or Gas Checked, Fatter or skinnier, longer or shorter, custom meplats, ogives and lube grooves... Same price for custom or stock. I can say by experience that these are GREAT molds.



    If you know what your rifle likes and what you want he can make it. Be sure to send off a few to JBledsoe and Shenandoah and let them shoot a group with them that will give you something to aspire too.

    Ok, another n00b question here. The mold is listed as .322 diameter. Let's say that's what it comes out at. I have read that different alloys shrink more than others but that they all shrink some(.002-.0035). So is .322 the diameter that a bullet should drop from the mold with a particular alloy, or is that the diameter of the mold and the bullets drop a few thousandths smaller?

    As part of the ordering process, one must select the alloy being used. Tom will then determine the shrinkage for that alloy and cut the mold to allow for that shrinkage. His tolerance on the diameter is -.000 + .0015.

    The .322 is a reference diameter. When placing the order there is this question about the desired diameter.

    What is the body diameter of the bullet design in this mold?

    I ordered my Accurate Mold because I NEEDED a bullet that would drop .382+ for my 38-55. As 30wcf noted the alloy you plan to use is one of the specs in the ordering process. Mine was right on the money and if I want smaller or bigger I can tweak the alloy to get what I need.

    Easier still is to buy one that will drop big and get yourself a Lee Push-through Sizer in the diameter your rifle shoots best. I have an RCBS mold that drops .316" and I use it in handguns and rifles sized down as low as .309" and it shoots great in everything I've tried - 308, 30-30, 32 H&R, 32-20...

    Thanks for the answers. I was just curious. Figured it was probably nothing to worry about.
