Looking for small qty of NIE .314 165 grain gas checked bullets. 50 pcs would probably be a lifetime supply (I'm old). I had a small batch of these in the basement no clue where I got them!) and found that they perform extremely well (22.5gr RL7) in my uncle's bring-home Arasaka.

I currently have an NEI .316 165GC mould in my possession. It's part of my friend Buck's estate, and is listed for sale. I've never cast with it, so I don't know how fat the boolits from it drop, but I might be able to cast some before someone claims it.
Do you know what your previous boolits were sized to??

The bullets measured .314, weighed 165 grains w/gas check and lube. I looked at your listing for Buck's NIE mold and it seems to be for a .316 180 grainer.

Do appreciate you getting back to me and thanks for the offer, but I have a bagful of 180gr somethings that my buddy Chuck cast up. The baggie is labeled "thick" and I can size those to .314. They shoot pretty good too, but still don't hold a candle to the NEI 165's. Wished I could remember where they came from.

Thanks again and Happy Thanksgiving!

Seems I can recall buying these here from a member that was moving back to CONUS from Alaska (or the other way around) and had to unload some of his stock before the move.
