I don't know, but can't begin to tell you how pleased I was last year, after years of searching to find one at a gunshow for $30 in nice shape. MB

I personally haven't seen anyone commercially that offers that particular bullet design for sale, I have a NOE mold that is a clone of that bullet that I've been casting for several years now. I cast mine from 50 / 50 alloy with a bit of tin an get god expansion at +P velocity, at first I used to run mine through the lube size nowadays I just power coat them but I still use a gas check for 357 Mag. loads.

Recovered bullet fired for a S & W 642 38 Special Airweight 3.5 grs. Bullseye, I leave the GC off the 38 loads.

358156 is this the Thompson design that Brian Pierce had an article about?

Rimrock Bullets sells one very close to 358156 hollow point. Soft lead with gas check.

Yes. My favorite bullet for .38 Spl. and .357 Magnum. I'm still using the two cavity mold I bought back in August 1954. That date is not a typo. Given proper care they don't wear out.

That's the mold I'd like to get. I haven't started casting yet. Paul, you have been casting exactly 10 years longer than I've been alive.😉
