Custom bullet casting servies?

So I was shooting today… Playing around with some TT-33 (7.62x25) loads today. Love that zippy round. Anyway, I was testing some .311" bullets. Some I DIY, some I bought. The DIY shot well, Lee mold: 31-93-1R.

Now… I am not super excited about casting, I can shake and bake hiTek (also not super excited about that either, I much rather buy), but casting this little fuckers - I am not super into it. So does anyone know if there are bullet casting companies out there who will do custom runs on specific cast bullets; and whether molds are interchangeable or do machines use custom molds? I’d be looking at around 5k projies (peek into my shooting habits lmao).

5k is a few…if you could find someone with a Magma casting machine thats easy done…but you will need a different mold, as they dont run with Lee molds, only RCBS, LYMAN double cavity from memory. I tried to buy a Magma 3yrs ago but missed out on it. I could ask the guy who has it for you?


Yeah, that would be awesome, thanks!

Have you tried contacting the companys in Australia that do cast projectiles?
There seems to be a few of them these days

Yeah, got in touch with one so far - no luck. Will try a couple more, but I suspect I’ll hear the same answer.

Have a chat to Les at HRBC - I got him to swage some .32 78gn Round Nose projectiles down to (IIRC) .310 and they worked pretty well. Not as well as the Sierra SportMaster .308 85gr JRN projectiles I got got the gun show a while back, but well enough to participate in Service Pistol matches.

That’s exactly what I did @Martini and that’s the ones I don’t like compared to my own with the Lee mold. I don’t like how deep you have to seat them. Just looks poop and sometimes they get caught on those protruding ridges.

They will definitely do in a pinch and I had him size them to .312 actually. Good to have, but the one Lee mold throws imho is better.
