Ordered a mold for my 38-55 last Saturday night, Feb. 9th. The website says three week turnaround but the mold was in my mailbox this past Thursday, 2/14. I must have said something nice in my order. wink

This makes the third Accurate mold I've bought, the others being a 45-200H which is a copy of the H&G 68 and a 358160 WFN plain base design for general .38 Spl and .357 mag shooting. The molds aren't cheap but IME they crank out perfect bullets very easily, plus Tom has always been very responsive to emails and helped me pick out the best choice for my needs.

Got the 38-250G this time, it's a gas check version of his 38-250D which puts a bit more lead outside the case than the RCBS 250FN I've been using. The rifle is a Winchester 1885 (Miroku) so OAL isn't a problem.

The furnace is heating up as I type this so I'll be pouring lead shortly.

Jim,

I have several molds from Tom. Great molds and great service. I've seen the same thing on my orders. He says three weeks but they have always arrived sooner than expected. Mountain Molds is another great one. Fast turn around and you get to design your own bullet.

Last count I have over 12 molds from Accurate all are exceptionally crafted and drop very high quality bullets. The one pictured is Accurate # 38-315 JG for my 38-55 High Wall..

Wasn't sure it would stabilize but it consistently will do 2" if I do my part driven by 5744 for 1460 FPS which really slaps the steel around !

Ordered a 41-350M for my 40-65 on the 3rd and received it 8 days later...ordered a 38-285IG for my 38-55 Pedersoli Hi-Wall on the 14th and it will probably be here on the 22nd...probably or maybe a day later because of "Presidents" day???? I have 5-6 other Accurate Molds toys including a 51-705B for my 50-90 Sharps Quigly, they always work....I'll be buying a few more most likely.

I've only got one Accurate mold, but it's a good one. 38-250B for my 38-55 Marlin JES rebore. Seems to be a lot of 38-55s in this thread. Fun round

I recently purchased my first Accurate mold. Like the rest of you, mine arrived sooner than was estimated. Its a nice looking good casting mold. Its the traditional 405 grain mold for a 45-70. Its the first aluminum mold since I tried and discarded a 2 cavity aluminum Lee mold 45 years ago. I ordered the aluminum with reservations but I am happy with it. I ordered it in .460 diameter and thats what it drops. I also ordered it with the trough on the sprue plate. Tom makes a nice mold for sure!

Jim, I was sure pleased with the prompt delivery and the quality of my molds, for my 45-70 and my 460 S&W. memtb

I really appreciate that Tom is willing to design a mould specifically for me. I send him an email describing what I want and get a message back with a new product number saying "how about this?". I got a chance on Sunday to cast a few with the latest addition. They cast at .401 and 297.5 gr and will get fitted with blue shoes then launched from my muzzleloader.

Oh, and he's patient when I don't use the exact right words wink

I have a bunch of Accurate Molds, Tom is a Great guy to deal with, He will help you customize anything you want. The Molds themselves are TOP Shelf! Big heavy Sprue Plates, I always highly advise Accurate molds
