RCBS has a 9mm round-nose bullet mould that is cut for a gas-check. After trying several different 9mm moulds with poor success, I bought that one. I have not had a problem since. No leading, no keyholing, no buckshot-type patterns. I just plain works. It was the best move I ever made for the 9mm.

Redding also has a 9mm mould cut for a gas-check. However, it is a semi-wadcutter. I have not tried it and doubt that it would feed in my older 9mm handguns. Back when I was looking for a 9mm with a gas-check, these were the only two I found.

For my RCBS 125gr gc mould the hornday gas checks have to be put on and seated by hand to fit correctly so they can be sized . the gas ck shank needs to be a bit smaller!
all of my other moulds of 358 , 44 and 45 cal the bullet can be dropped in my Star's sizing die and the gas check dropped on top of the base of the bullet and sized perfectly .
