I tried a few older Lyman/Ideal moulds designed for the .30/40 Krag, .30-'06, etc. most had a large, round nose and feeding was iffy in an AR. I bought one of the Lee/AAC tumble lube molds and it has shot very well in my AR and Stevens bolt gun. I believe it's designed to replicate the 220 gr Sierra. Match King.

Have the NOE version of the Ed Harris 155 grain SP he designed for the SKS/AK47
NEI and LEE also have a version of it.

Am tempted to buy
Lee's TL309-230-5R - the boat tail is sized so you can crimp on a gas check
