    10mm/.40 cal 200gr bullet mold

    Anyone have one lying around?
    I have done a bit of Google but not much out there. Ones I have found will not ship to NZ

    Anything considered. I have someone who will make them if I can track down a mold.😆

    Ive got a .40 mold of some sort that came in a bunch of stuff I bought a while ago. Not sure if it's a 200 or 180gr though.

    Thanks Oz but I just bought Shooternz's one.

    Should have listened to @nzfubz when he told me to go to 200's ages ago.

    I tried some Rusa 200 grain @900 fps and they shot softer and as accurate to what I have been using.
    Using a grain less powder and easily reach PF.

    Yeah the 200s are the way to go, they are all I've ever run.

    If you want a second mold you're welcome to it, as I'm never going to use it.

    Awesome. I will remind you when you head over these ways.
    I will save you some whitebait or a few backsteaks.

    Still thinking about it to be honest. He doesn't seem that keen to sell yet.
    I will buy it if he does decide too.

    My one turned out pretty good with the new thumb rest. Lightened trigger and recoil spring.
    Like you said it does take a bit to get used to. I got a bit of slide rash on my strong hand thumb while getting used to the rest.😆

    Are you sure the rash/worn bit, was from the gun?

    And are you going to be making the 200gns for everyone? I may have some lead here - and it's either going to be sinkers (me) or bullets (someone else doing it).....
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....

    Send it over and I will get some made for you.

    My mate makes my 180 gr ones now. They shoot really well.

    You will need to see if you want to use cast bullets thru your gun.

    Mine doesn't foul at all with them.
    Did you get onto your guy about that other thing?

    It is leaving creases in the cast bullets.
    Also had a rust mark that when cleaned out left pitting and so another blemish.

    We are going to smoke it tonite and see if that makes any difference.
