      Hello everyone, my name is Tony and I am glad I found your forum. I own a small casting business and want to add a 30 cal/200ish mold to my line for mil-surps with long or worn throats. I already have the 311299 and the 314299 but need a bullet that throws a little bigger than my 314299 (throws a .3125) and just to make it do double duty I would perfer a flat nose. My customer base is mostly plinkers and hunters. I am looking at 4 different molds at Accurate and if anyone has any experience with these or another, I would welcome the feedback. 31-200L and 31-200M are flat nosed copies of the above Lyman’s. The other two are 31-200W, looks like the big brother to a Lee 30-150fn and the last one is the 31-200J which Tom list as a british 303 bullet. I know one bullet won’t fit all rifles, I’m just trying to have a better option for my mil-surp customers with some levels of throat erosion.

      Thanks, and I enjoy the level of knowledge and helpfulness the members have and hopefully I’ll be able to share mine as well.
      Tony

      I use the NOE 316299 for a couple of oversize 31 cal service rifles. It’s the perfect compliment to my Lyman 311299 and 314299. With those three, I think that you would be able to cover most of the bases for your customers.

      That’s the one I have for my 303 Brit. Nice mold. Drops beautiful bullets.

      Thanks, I will head on over to the NOE site and have a look. I agree the 311299 and 314299 are my most accurate Lyman designs if they fit, and the 311291(170-RN) if you don’t need the length of the 200 grainers to reach the rifling.

      looks like Scharfschuetze offered pretty much as I would have. I think you will find AL quite easy to work with.

      I have also been looking for something similar to the 316299 that works real well in my 303 British, Argentine Mauser, 7.7 Japanese, and others with large chambers, but designed with a flat nose for deer hunting. I have killed several deer with the 316299 but have lost a few also due to tracking long distances that I don’t have with using flat nosed lead projectiles like the ones commonly found for the 45-70, 32-40 and 30-30.
