    .356- 100 RN, no lub groove ,8 -cavity?

    I'm looking for something like this for my Hi cap 380. I love my other 8 cavity MP Molds. Can anyone point me toward the right direction?

    Thanks.

    If it doesn't splatter, shatter, burst or explode, it's not worth shooting.

    Ummmm, After you call or write the folks at MP, let us know how many cavities they can cut, and the cost. Do consider a double sided mold with two sprue plates.

    I donít think they went under 115grs in 9mm. I am using a 122grs in my Astra 300 9x17 (.380)

    I have that one. It's nice for 9x19 but a tad too long for 9x17.

    I contacted MP and asked for one. I'll let everyone know what I hear.

    I did hear back from Lee. If I want a custom 6 cavity 356 100 RN PC bullet, Lee wants $250 for set up +$56 for the mold + 8 weeks ETA.

    Any one want to split the $250 fee?

    If we get 40 molds, the fee is waived. I'm in for 2 molds.

    If you keep your eyes open, you might find something pretty close to what you're looking for. Lee cataloged a 6 cavity version of their 102gn RN mold years ago. I've got one of the molds, and when I had my M11 the .380 upper LOVED that bullet.

    Miha made a 104 gr hp mold before. I can send you a pic of them if you want. Might get a honcho to start a rerun of the mold.
    Sorry I didn’t see the no lube grove. The mold I was talking about has a lube grove. Sorry.

    A lube groove is not a deal breaker for me. If it adds versatility and more people join that's fine.

    11 people interested. That's $78 per mold.

    I have a member who is sending me some flat nose to tests. If the "ranch dog" profiles work I may end up with a Lee .356 -95 FN "ranch dog" 6 -cavity.
