    any interest in a 40 s&w/10mm mold

    Ive been dying for a mold in about .403 with a standard lube groove, round nose configuration in something like 200gn and with a hp/flat nose option, in something around 190/180 gn, I don't know how reasonable those numbers are but that's what id like to see about. Ive been trying to get noe to do an inventory run, but the design isn't exactly what I wanted. Mihec had hinted too possibly considering doing something like this, so I thought id get the ball rolling and see if anyone else has some interest, I don't know if I'm doing this in the order its supposed to, but I'm not the most patient person, and I just received my first mold from mihec, now I must have more!!!!!! Below are the highlights of what id like to see in this mold

    -drops at .403
    -round nose @ about 200gn
    -flat nose between 200-185gn
    -Standard lube groove
    -large hp atleast 175gn
    -Flat base, possible with gas check option?
    -2 cavity, this isn't super important, these for me will serve a specific purpose so id like the consistency of 2 cavities
    -all pins and top punches as mihec may provide if he decides he's interested in this
    -Mihec's input on this project, you sir are a very good craftsmen and the pride and care put into the one mold I got from you shows me its well worth the wait, if you decide right now is not the time to do this please say so.

    I hope this is done correctly, I will have a handgun soon to use this in, so id like to get this rolling if theres enough interest.

    Thanks and please share input if you'd like, this is just to gauge interest and kind of decide on the overall design if its something that will come to fruition

    Not sure if this would fit the bill but there is a flat nose option at MPs store
    https://www.mp-molds.com/e-shop/mold.../mp-402-180-pb

    If that doesn't work maybe Miha would be willing to work with you and design a similar design with the RN option you want.



    Alternatively there is a similar option that Al has over at NOE.

    I have one of AL's 402-150 FNs and what little I've had the chance to shoot seems to do well in my HK USP compact.

    Personal preference though is for the Cramer pin system that Miha uses over the tilting pin system of NOE, but both work well.
