    no but I always wanted to. but I found an ideal mold #358315 in HP 200gr. it shoots one hole groups off the bench in my rem. model 8 with 3031 powder, haven't had a chance to shoot a deer with one yet but I bet it won't bounce off,,,,,,,,,,

    Both MP Molds and NOE make them. MP uses the RCBS 200 and NOE uses the Ranchdog 200

    I've got a 168gr HP mold for 357. I have shot it in m141 but only target & Varmit. I wouldn't be afraid to use it on deer but I wouldn't be afraid to use same bullet as a solid.

    I have a few hollow pointing fixtures that I use to hollow point, cup point, "Y" and "V" point my own bullets. Over the years I have done a lot of testing with rifle and pistol bullets, and depending on what your goals are there are modified nose configurations that work well. I personally like the cup point design with a hard cast bullet. It allows for greater terminal impact force to the target, drives straighter through soft and hard matter, and limits penetration over the flat meplat design. Add a softer alloy to that and the cup point allows for expansion and greater retained weight, less nose shearing upon impact (than a soft alloy hollow point), etc. Any bullet can be hollow pointed with the right set up, so there is no need to buy a mold for the purpose.
