Steve; Accurate Molds in Utah make superior moulds and delivery is prompt. Also. the group buys from NOE over at castboolits are worth following as they are making a good product. NEI was once considered very good and I have a couple but since Walt died I have heard QC has slipped. Can't confirm that myself as one I got post Walt is an excellent mould. RCBS is pretty good and Lyman is so-so these days. Both these latter are liable to cast slightly smallish in their bullet diameters but that isn't hard and fast either. I'm not a fan of Lee but their 6 cavity moulds are decent with some prep work before using. I do have the Lee Magnum Melter which is the same pot as you referred to sans the bottom pour. I only use it to keep molten metal ready to ladle into my RCBS pot as it is diminished.

Good info here. Thanks. So far, I've got these.

http://www.noebulletmolds.com
http://www.accuratemolds.com
http://www.neihandtools.com
http://www.ranchdogoutdoors.com

and the regular suspects - Lee, Lyman and RCBS.

To be honest, all I've ever looked at was Lee and whatever was on the tables at gun shows. I'll have to spend some time checking out these other places.

I've had a look at the various companies. Accurate molds seem to have a lot of options and molds available. They are pricier than the others, but it appears that you'll get exactly what you want.

Steve: You will note Accurate Molds does not show the main bullet body diameter in their catalogue. That is so you can soecify the diameter that suits your gun. Slugging bores is a must to take advantage of that choice. Every time a shooter generates a new design that becomes a new entry in the catalogue as a link to his computer driven machinery.

Yes, I saw that. I followed the sequence to build a mold and got a feel of the process. I noted that he prefers that customers contact him with their intentions, so he can assist in the build.

I've got one Lee. a couple of NEI's, some Lyman's. one Saeco, a few LBT's and one from Paul Jones. There are no issues with shipping moulds up here, just got two LBT's last fall. Prophet River may have some Saeco's,he'd likely order anything else you want also. And there is KAL tool & die in Wpg making paper patch moulds.

I'll have to compile a list of mold makers and put them up at my site.
