    Accurate mold #31-171D GC mold

    I'd like to order this mold from accurate molds. It's for 2 Winchester octagon bbld rifles I have. One is for a 20" octagon bbls one and the second one has a 26" bbl. Both are from the Canadian Centennial Commorative series just not from the same set. both have been fitted with Williams rear sights and Lyman globe front sights. By changing the body diameters to
    .313 & .314 I could also use this bullet in my Springfield in '06. And who makes H&I dies in different sizes?. Thanks for your time. Frank

    That's a great mold for barrels which have a bit of wear on them, as the tapered nose fits the throat well. In a new barrel the forepart will be engraved by the throat and you will feel some effort in closing the lever, but it really shoots great. I also have the 155-grain plainbased version without the GC heel, which I shoot with 5 grains of Bullseye. I use the Lee push-through sizer in .311"

    Keep it to yourself.

    The 20" barreled one has about 3-4 hundred jacketed rounds through it and the 26" barreled one hasn't been shot yet. So yes probably need to shoot some jacketed rounds through it. Thanks,Frank
