    Any interest in a MP 95 grain .357” mold?

    I’ve been using this Lee mold for years.

    It’s one of the most accurate bullets I’ve shot in a variety of 9mm pistols. Not to mention it’s very easy on lead consumption too. The Lee mold is a tumble lube design but I’ve always wanted a no lube groove mold. MiHec said he could make a similar bullet without lube grooves if there is enough interest. Just putting this out there to see who would be interested? It’s also a great .380 bullet too.

    Mihec ran the 358640 some time ago. Removing the lube groove from that design would yield what you are after.

    I will take this one as a NOE run. Not sure how much interest we will have on this one...but Im up for the challenge.

    Could you live with 105 grains? I would want a bevel base and traditional lube groove. Not a lot of space to work with?

    Sorry but I’m not interested in a NOE mold. I prefer the spruce plate cutter with a lever like Lee molds that MP uses. I don’t like molds that you have to smack the spruce plate cutter.

    Understood...But I think it would take a long time to generate enough interest then production time. I will see if Mihec has something close to what youre proposing already. Arsenal also has one very similar to this ready to ship.

    Any more interest? A very similar 95gr bullet works really well in my Fx9 and CZ Scorpion.
