longhunter;  Although the NOE 311-165-rf is an excellent bullet the throat of my 336 was too short for them and they wouldn't chamber. If you're thinking of going that way I'd be happy to send you a couple so you could try before you buy. Gp

HMMMMMM? That reminds me that some of the 311-165's that I loaded for a friend had to be seated deep so they would chamber! Never made the connection.

I have a 308403 Pope designed mold,bullet slips in fired case neck. I'd trade for 200 cast lubed bullets. I have some cast you could try.

The 308403 is aPope design bullet for the 30 caliber military rifles, Krag and Springfield. The base band is tapered, smaller at the rear, larger at the front. The largest base band diameter is .317" or so. It is made to be pushed into the fired-reprimed-charged but UNSUZED case with the fingers, and will wedge itself in and come to a stop with just part of the base band in the case. The resulting cartridge is quite fragile, this bullet is for target shooting only. I've shot it for years in many 30 caliber rifles. With 7 grains of Unique it shoots into 1 1/2" average 5-shot groups at 100 yards from a M54 30WCF. In other rifles it has worked well as an offhand bullet.

Will think about that one.

I have several tapered molds but not one like that.

It sure sound interesting.

Thanks all for your input,

Jon
