    32 WS and 8mm mold recommendations?

    Iím curious if anyone has had success with a mold that can cast for 32WS as well as 8mm Mauser (different action types). If so please enlighten me. There are some older threads but they donít really comment on it directly. It seems very possible with the close groove specs and appropriate sizing for each. I would love one mold with two different applications. I have an NOE sizer kit so adding bushing is simple and cheaper. I also Hi-Tek coat if it is relevant.
    Thanks

    I can't imagine why it wouldn't work if your mold casts at .323 or more, depending on what the groove diameter of you 8mm is. I use some of my molds for various rifles of differing groove diameter. Sizing them down a couple/few more thousandths won't matter so long as you lube them first to keep the grooves from closing up much and keep the bullet centered in the sizing die.

    170 grs. should work fine. I prefer a heavier bullet for my 8mm's but that's just me.
