    Any idea on the weight of the brass mould? Also nose diameter. I powder coat and don't want another mould that might be problematic in my blackout.

    I feel your pain. The 4 cavity brass is going to be heavier than you’re used to if you have casted a lot with aluminum molds. I would suggest getting the two cavity HP and the 6 cavity Lee style mold for production and everyday shooting.

    The boolits are too tall to stand. So uneven powder coat will keep some boolits from stacking in a mag or chambering.

    A simple holder can be made of 25 ACP or 9mm cases JB welded to a pan and put the boolits in base first. The noses will cook smooth and even and cure most of your problems. The only way I get the NOE 247 to coat good.

    This is exactly what I was looking for good sir, the front looks a bit flat though for quality feeding just how big is the nose going to be?

    It needs a slight flat point to track straight trhough the target and not tumble or yaw. Im positive it will feed.

    Do you have an approximate date when these will be made? Not entirely sure how the group buys work

    This is from the archives...so Im not sure if Miha has the cherry or not for this mold. That buy had 50 sign ups. Im not sure why this one is moving this slow. I expected to have 15-18 buyers by now.

    By my estimation, we are looking at at least 4-6 months mold in hand. If we get 10 solid mold commitments, Im going to ask him to cut those first so we dont have to wait for 20 or more Hollow Point mold commitments.

    Im not sure how long ago the other one ran, but I would imagine if things stall out many look for alternatives. I would expect to have something in 6-8 months personally. After all I am buying this because I have a need for it!

    Would it be against the rules to post on another site about this group buy in an attempt to scare up more people?

    What is the overall length of the bullet and what is the spec from the crimp cannelure to the to point? Reason I ask is I want to run this bullet in my 7.62x39 for subsonic duty. I have a Lee 311200 which drops a 205 grain round nose which works very well for subsonic 7.62x39, but an extra 23 grains OR a HP would be very nice to have too.

    It is designed to be seated deeper or shorter than the crimp groove to address your concern. I prefer molds built that way. I will request the dimension that you request though.

    There are no issues with that, by all means spread the word.

    All taken care of gents!!!

    Share with your friends. Lets try to get this one closed. When this originally ran, it had a ton of sign ups.

    Sure wish we could get some actual size measurements on this one. Might get more people signed up.

    Thanks for the numbers. I was also hoping for nose diameters from crimp groove forward.
