I bought 3 different Lyman 311284 molds. Every blasted one of them cast undersized bullets. The nose on 1 of them miked .2975 ". Useless in my .30 cal. rifles. ( I guess that was Lyman's best attempt at making a decent .30 cal. mold, I'm probably finished buying newly manufactured Lyman molds in any caliber ).
This NOE 311284 from Swede is so close to perfection, words can't express my current satisfaction with this mold. The rejection rate on this mold is near ZERO, all bullets are filled out well, base fills out well. Most of the bullets fall from the mold without a tap on the hinge pin of the handles.
Bands mike a near perfectly round .314 " The nose mikes .3018 "
If you're looking to buy a mold that is right the 1st time, take a good hard look at NOE ! !
