    Does anyone know if Lee makes one? I think they make molds for the .32 ACP, but the bullet diameter might be different. It also occurred to me that the little brass .31 molds might make a suitable conical, I know that the .32 caliber Magtech bullets I've got will fit in the cylinder of a 63' Rem pocket nicely.

    My guess is with the heel and larger diameter that could be a decently accurate bullet, with that cone shaped point it would be rather lethal perhaps. But it can't be to heavy or it will keyhole. My 98 grain LRN's tend to keyhole a lot. When I clipped the tip off the pill it brought it down to 75 grains. The key holing stopped and I was left with a nice SWC style bullet. Surprisingly, when loaded with blackpowder, these rounds really ain't half bad! :D

    Does anyone know the diameter of the bullets a .32 caliber repro mold will cast? I am thinking about trading my pietta .31 Remington pocket cylinder for one.

    Any mold advice would be appreciated! :)

    Lee has molds in .311 that are 93 and 100 grains.

    Lee also has a .314 mold that is 90 grains for $19.49

    Jaymo, I think a Lee mold would be the best option. Lee usually has good stuff, I like their molds.
    Now this, looks promising: https://fsreloading.com/lee-mold-dc-tl314-90-swc-90311.html

    The only problem I can think of is I don't know if these 90 grain pills will tumble. The rifling in my Iver Johnson isn't too fast.
