Ive heard that using a .357 mold is the best bet because of selection of molds.

If I plan on Powder Coating/ Hi-Tek coating them, would you recommend a certain featured bullet mold to aid the coating for suppressed subsonic shooting?

Also, what weight do you think would be admirable for this goal?




Lastly, I know there are casting sites devoted to this endeavor, I just thought I'd get a good answer on here relative to suppressed/subsonic 9mm.

Thanks in advance.

Pretty sure that powder coating, while good to reduce the amount of leading in the barrel/suppressor, the coating also adds to the overall thickness of the, already slightly large diameter bullet.

Are you planning to swage the bullets?

Im sorry to be asking but is swaging and sizing (running the bullets through a sizer) the same thing?

Yes, if that is what you meant.
I've been reading that a .356" mold would be better but I was thinking that a .357" would be fine, and better in case for whatever reason, the .356" wasnt actually .356 but smaller.

I dont know anymore haha.

The PC-ing does add a little to the bullet and will require sizing.
