.311" 160 Grn RNGC Lyman 2-Cav. Mould #311672 DISREGARD GOING TO WAIT TILL I TRY SOME SAMPLES
Trying to find the best deal I can get on this mold. I can currently get it for $95 cash and carry new, with spru plate.
Would like to find it used at a bit less if possible.
Already Have Lyman handles.

I traded off one last year as the bullet nose was too small and was inaccurate in my Rem 700 .308 Win & .30-06....if I were you I'd buy something else.
I thought I would get one as my savage runs a little tight. It was suggested by someone else with an Axis Since I have not tried any out, and someone is sending me some sample bullets maybe I will wait a bit. Thanks.

Glad you decided to wait on some samples. I would highly recommend saving your money till you can purchase the 308 hunting or 30 silhouette from MP molds.
A good bullet design saves you lots of headaches.

What is so funny....using the Lee 150 RF-GC I get excellent accuracy with my .308 Win & .30-06. I know many don't think that Lee bullet molds are all that good, but I am not of that persuasion.

There’s nothing wrong with lee molds as long as the design fits your rifle. I use several lee molds and they work out great.
The lee 310gr 44 bullet shoots better than anything else I can find in my super blackhawk hunter.
If we could get Mitty to make a pound cast of his chamber and throat area we might be able to recommend a lee mold.
The molds I recommended are made to self align which hides a lot of problems. The bullet either has to fit perfectly and not have any room to get out of misalignment during firing or be designed to self align.

After I tried the 311672 I tried the RCBS 165 SIL-GC .30 caliber... Same deal, the nose was too small. This time I Beagled it and and I got excellent accuracy with it in the .308 WIN/.30-06. I suspect had I Beagled the 311672 it would have been quite accurate.

Was kinda jumping the gun.
460 May gave me a couple hundred, 170 grain bullets he cast. Shot some at .312 .313.Ok less than stellar accuracy, but fiver says I have a tight chamber, recommends me sizing.310 to.311.So I aloxing tonight and using my new sizer on them tomorrow. We will see how the run thru the 06.
Then I believe Fiver has some samples coming for me, after he had me take measurements on my once fired brass.
So I probably best wait till I get those and lush them thru my Axis before I go buying a mold.
you guys have been very helpful.

Hard to go wrong with Lyman #311291 in 30-06. Its weight is in the 170 grain range, and has done well for me in 30/30 WCF and 30-06. My example (from 1981) casts .301" on the bore rider and a 'fat' .311" on the drive bands.
