    Not that ive got one to sell but lee moulds are absolutely fine
    They cast fantastic bullets and they are cheap
    Donít discount one

    Also donít forget cast bullets ideally need to be 0.001Ē over bore size
    So if youíre shooting a 308win you will need a .309 mould
    If youíre shooting a 303 or 7.62x39 it can be anything from .311-.314 depends how buggerd the barrel is

    Obviously if youíre a bullet caster youíll know all that but just incase youíre new to it

    shootersnz sells them dirt cheap on trademe and they are very very good projectiles......for the price it would hardly be worth doing your own.

    Thanks for the reply guys,im playing with a bailkel single shot it shoots very well with 190gn with 14 gns of 2400 i thought a lighter bullet may be the go also wanting to try casting for my 3030,i cast for 303 and pistol cals but i dont have a 150gn mold lee molds are fine i like the steel ones.i also cast and shoot 22 hornet just for fun

    Lee 170 gr flat nose is the answer in the 3030, man you must have patience casting 22 is just so fiddly.

    i would also suggest the LEE/Lyman 170grn. FP bullet mold in any 1-10 twist .30cal for best combination of accuracy / terminal performance on animals at any velocity . . . the RCBS FP version comes at 197grns. and would be my first choice

    good luck . .. R
