    Mold for Sig P220 10mm

    Looking for mold recommendations for my Sig P220 10mm. Wanting to hunt with it so I am thinking 180gr-200gr with as much meplat as will cycle reliably. I ladle pour and figure a 3-cavity is probably the most I can do well. Appreciate your advice.

    The RCBS 180 gr rnfp mold/boolits work great for me. I picked up an outhouse load of them when a local casting company went belly-up. All the retailers ran, it was weird. This was a few years ago. They function in my Glock 20 and 29 (with replacement barrels) flawlessly.

    I’ve used the Lee 175 Truncated Cone. Typical Lee, a little out of round at the parting lines and had to “Beagle” it up to size 0.403. But it has a good meplat and runs fine through my 220.

    My favorite is Accurate 40-165A. I run that boolit in the P220, XDm and SR1911 with enough Blue Dot to get 1350-1400 (depending on gun). I asked for 0.403” with my alloy (96 Pb, 2 Sn, 2 Sb) and got it! Also as round as I can measure. The Accurate mold is a pleasure to use and is SO WORTH the cost to me. The Lee hasn’t seen service since the Accurate arrived.

    I don’t hunt deer (other than I try see them before they jump in front of my pickup). So can’t speak on how that boolit takes deer compared to other boolits.

    NOE 198gr WFN shoots well out of my P220 Hunter model in 10mm.

    Thanks guys. I will looking into a mold very similar to the NOE 198gr WFN. I can't imagine it would not do anything a 10mm should be doing.

    Try the LBT 200gr WFN. You can buy some from Montana Bullet Works to see if you like them. They feed reliably and I have killed a few hogs with them over 800X.

    That's a thumper!

    Glock 29 KKM barrel Lee 175 TC mold PC HF Red. Weight 180g on final bullet not going to share my power change but shot well. I would have shot a bear with that round if need had been. A good friend of mine is bush piloting in Alaska so I sent it with him just in case. Perhaps I will get the gun back some day.
