    NOE 311-247-FN RG4 cavity PB (Whisper)?

    I see several older threads about group buys of this mold but no one is talking about the results.

    http://noebulletmolds.com/NV/product...roducts_id=999

    I'm interested in this for my .300 aac AR. I'd like to buy some bullets to try before I drop the cash on the mold. Did anyone ever get one of these molds and if so would anyone sell me 50-100 unsized/unlubed bullets to test?

    I'm running a 10.5" 1/8 barrel and have read countless stories of the Lee 309-230 blackout mold bullets tumbling and leading even when powder coated but no info on these bullets.

    Thanks,
    Rich

    I use that NOE bullet in 30-30, fast twist barrel, basically same as a 300AAC. It works in my 7.62x54r and my 300 win mag. I tried the Lee, worse bullet ever made.

    good luck, I been trying to find something on this boolit for over a year and found very little, what I did find was light loads around 900-1000 fps, I was looking for something around 2,000 fps was wanting know if anyone had done this and with what powder.

    What cartridge are you trying to use to push the 247 at 2,000fps? I shot it in a 30-06 at 1,950fps with 35gr H4895, you are not going to get anywhere near that with a 300BO. I did have a load for about 1,400fps in the 300BO but usually shoot it over RL-7 at about 1050fps out of my 16" upper.

    I have a 3 cavity solid mold (mine is actually the Accurate Molds version at 245gr), I haven't cast with it in awhile as I have a 6 cavity 235gr that has a profile that works better in magazines. The 245gr is just a tad fat to work well in most magazines, although the Lancer mags I have work well with it.

    I have a 2PB 2 GC version. I haven't quite found a load my AR likes, but my Ruger Ranch likes 9.5 grains of 300-MP to just stay subsonic with a 10" silencer. That's with 300 blackout.

    Just because a handful of people on the Internet share an opinion doesn't prove it is correct.

    I'm looking to work up a sub sonic load as heavy as I can stabilize in the 1/8 twist barrel. I want a hollow point bullet for expansion at the low velocity. This will be SBR'd and suppressed eventually. Range toy, home defense and possibly hog hunting are the intended uses.

    Moonie, are either of your molds HP?

    I only have a couple of HP molds, a Mihec 200gr .452 HP and an NOE 350gr .454 HP

    Check out the relevant PDF at http://www.ranchdogoutdoors.com/data/NOE/PDF/30/ . This data was produced by Ranch Dog using Quickload, so grain of salt and everything. And while you're there explore the other data sheets for NOE and Ranch Dog moulds you use.

    I don't have the HP version yet, but I do have 4000+ of the solid bullets cast. Haven't completed my 300 build yet, so I haven't got any kind of testing done on them.

    If you're interested in testing some of the solid bullets, shoot me an email & we'll work something out.
