    .40 165 RNFP MP vs Accurate vs????

    Hey Guys.

    Im looking for a new mold for my .40. I'm currently using the lee 175 TC 6 banger. i powder coat these, and have had great feeding and fair accuracy. I'm casting for volume, as I'm an IPSC competitor, shooting 1000 rounds a month of .40.
    What I'm looking for is a mold ~ 165 grains, round nose flat point or maybe another TC with no lube gove for powder coating. minimum 4 hole mold, with feeding reliability as a primary consideration. ( feeding a CZ TSO)

    So far, I've narrowed it down to two I'm thinking of:
    MP molds ; 402-160 HP PB mold
    https://www.mp-molds.com/e-shop/mold...p-pb-nlg-4-cav

    or

    Accurate molds ; 40-165Y mold
    http://www.accuratemolds.com/bullet_...=40-165Y-D.png

    At the moment I'm leaning towards the accurate, simply as the MP mold has been out of stock for months and I never got an email back about it.
    Any input would be much appreciated on pros/cons of each or alternate suggestions.

    If you need a hollow point go with Mihec
    Otherwise go with Accurate

    I have several molds from Tom @ accurate molds that have no lube grooves and all cast great. The last mold I got from Tom took 4 days to receive it and it is a work of art, the mold is a 240gr 10mm and with my lead bullets are running 239gr + - very consistent.
