I am thinking about the Lee 365-95-1R for my Makarov is their a better mold I should be looking at?

It was the first mold, and so far, only mold I bought for my Mak. Worked so well I never saw the need to look for another.

I use it in my Makarov with good success. I don't shoot thousands of rounds out of it per year as I don't like to chase brass and I make my brass from 9mm Para cases. Another thing that I do with the Lee 365-95-1R is size it down to 0.358" using a Lee push through sizer and shoot it from my 38 Special or 357 Magnum! It shoots very well from both. Good-luck...BCB

here's an email i got from lee that might help you about sizing:
Mr. xxx,

There isn't enough demand to warrant a regular production lube and
size kit for the 9mm Makarov. I load for the Mak too and have found
the chambers to be large enough to use bullets as cast. Here's how
to test yours; Seat an as-cast bullet in an empty cartridge case,
and see if this dummy cartridge will drop into the chamber. If it
does, you can shoot them that way, but if the bullet swells the case
to the point that it is a tight fit in the chamber, then you will
have to resize.
