    8mm Lebel revolver

    Any suggestions for 8mm Lebel revolver bullets? I have brass and dies. The bore measures approx. .327". Graf sells a plated bullet in .330" but that seems too large in a plated bullet (plus, they won't ship to MA, even with a $40 minimum order).
    The Lyman mold #32359 can't be found.
    I have a Lee mold for S&W .32 but the bullets are way too small in diameter. Lee makes an 8mm rifle bullet mold, but not one for the revolver.
    I could keep slugging the bore and load the slugs...

    I fit were me, I'd contact Accurate Molds and tell Tom what I was looking for.

    Yup, I think he has one already, but I'm not sure. Look at his website. I seem to remember that this has come up before.

    There is no 'right' that requires me to work for you or you to work for me!

    Accurate Molds has a few in the right diameter/weight range. I'm just not sure what the original shape of the bullet was.
