    Noe moulds for 8mm mauser and 6.5x55?

    I was hoping some of y'all could recommend a couple good moulds from Noe for the 8mm mauser and the 6.5x55,these would be used for target and possibly for the occasional deer. I would prefer to go with pb over gc but will go gc if needed. I have a ample supply of Unique,2400,reloader 7 and 30-31 which I'll be experimenting with. The rifles used are yugo m48's and a husqvarna m38. Thanks alot for any recommendations.

    IMHO, this is the primary NOE design I would consider for deer hunting having enough meplat. If you plan to limit your self to plain base velocities, judge your max lethal range accordingly.
    More "This is what happened when I,,,,," and less "What would happen if I,,,,"

    I have both the NOE 326471fn and the 325365sp in gas check. But my best hunting bullet is an Accurate 33-205T. My Yugo M48 has a big throat and the bore riding design shoots very well. Have you looked at the Group Buy Mihec has for 8mm bullets? hc18flyer

    Because 6.5 X 55 Swede rifles have 1 in 7.5" rate of twist barrels limiting cast bullet velocities and still maintain accuracy at 100 yards to under about 1400 ft/sec. I can push my 314-202 bullets to 1900 ft/sec with 1" groups out of my scoped 03 (1 in 10" rate of twist) and that should be more than adequate for deer.

    I have NOE's version of Lymans 323471 and no 8MM to shoot it in.
    So it's for sale if you want it.
