    I have the old NORMA 203 (NO the NORMA B203!).
    It is similar to the IMR 4320 and the W N135.
    Unfortunately for the Italian law we can not hold more than 5 kg of powder and this quantity also includes that contained inside the cartridges loaded!
    Once the packs were very small: they were 100 or 250 grams at most. Now the packs are 500 or 1000 grams, and it is easy to exceed the legal quantity!
    I also load cartridges for shotguns, so I also have powders for these cartridges!

    For this reason I can not buy so many types of powder! Also if a type of powder is not good I spent my money unnecessarily! With the 100 gram packs it was easy to consume them quickly!

    The Lee MOLD DC CTL312-160-2R seems to me suitable for the K-31 because the Shmidt-Rubin has a very short trhoat, and this bullet is the one that has the most tapered shape.
    Or maybe I'm wrong?

    If that mould actually drops at .312 inches it'll take a lot of sizing to work at all, IMHO. The lands diameter of the K-31 is only .299" in most rifles.

    The old 203 looks in Quickload to be too slow for cast bullets. But if that's what you have, try it. 35 grains to start. Cast 'em very hard.

    Here's another CB thread that you should read. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/show...e-7-5x55-Swiss

    I have just started using the NOE 311-195 K31 mold and it fits my chamber very well because of the tapered nose. Looking forward to testing for accuracy. At this time I'm using 2400.
