    What's your favorite 500 Magnum Bullet Mold?

    Hello All,
    In the market for a 500 Magnum bullet mold. Does anyone have any advice on a good mold to buy? Thanks in advance. Boats

    The only one I have is Lee 440gr, looking at some of the heavy custom's though, Accurate or NOE. Large charges of W296/H110 in my 15" Encore stings a bit and the frame did split my trigger finger open, I'll not shoot heavy loads in it without shooting gloves again.

    Accurate Molds Company :50-350W for lightweights,50-450C for heavier work.Both shoot better than Lee 440.

    For handguns?
    I like the RNFP for all my big bore revolvers...500 is no different.

    Favorite..That is easy, this one here, since it is the only one I have and it seems to do as well as I can. It is a 440 gr Accurate mold.

    it would be a toss up. both ballistic cast molds One is a 450 lfngc and the other is a 480 lfn gas check. they have been hands down the best bullets in my 500 linebaughs and my 50ak. Thing is though I don't know if bc is still in business.

    Another vote for Lee 440's. PC and GC, I run them from 600fps to 1450fps out of the JR500. Real nice, accurate boolit.
