    Looking for H&G s242 clone 45

    .45 160 gr boolit. The H&G s242. Looking at who makes the closest mold to this design. I had some gifted to me from a magma mold, but itís only a 2 cavity..worst case is I can order one but was wondering if anyone makes a 4 cavity..Noe? accurate? Iím all ears

    My 1911 loves them

    The Saeco #063, 160 grain is similar as well as the Saeco #065, 180 grain.

    accuratemolds.com page 13 of the catalog. 45-160S or if you want a little thicker driving bands 45-180B. He makes a 4 cavity iron mold that is a pleasure to cast with. Lee and RCBS handles fit but don't open as wide as H&G.

    Of course if you just want a semi wad cutter that functions flawless in 1911's the H&G #68 200 grain can't be beat for functioning & accuracy. Also the H&G 180 grain #130. These old H&G molds are a pleasure to use.

    I have a SAECO mold that looks very much like the H&G 130. The box says it is a 130 and the sprue plate says 130 but the blocks don't have any ID. This mold drops at almost 200 gr. instead of 185 gr. I don't think a difference in alloy could make that much difference so ???.

    The accurate 160 is looking like my best bet. Already have a few different 68 designs. My pistol loves the 160
