Thanks, Bob. Steveoh sent me a message about this yesterday and I thought it was a .313 only option. It seems that it's available in a .309 so I'll give a shot. Can't beat the price. Maybe it will shoot better than my similar Lee mould.

Yes, you can specify the diameter (within reason)….

Received this little baby in the mail over the weekend and got a chance to cast some today. A ordered a three cavity .309 gas check. Using the material I have they are dropping out between 109.5 and 110. I poured a few dozen, sized some through the .309 die (barely touched) and did a quickie test shoot.

I have had mixed results with light weight bullets, but this one shows great promise. I took two shots at 75 yards and had basically touching impacts on steel. I had similar results at 100 yards with a about a 1" group of three. At 150 yards I was around 1.5" and I shot the last three at 175 yards and took a quick pic of that (below)  My first two shots were basically touching and the last was about 1 5/8" (center to center) to the left. Fairly good wind blowing today, but I'm really happy with what I'm seeing so far.

On a side note, one big difference between a quality mold (NOE, Arsenal) and a budget mold (Lee) are the set screws for the handles. I tried to back off the tiny set screw of the Lee molds and both stripped out. The afore mentioned molds have larger size set screws and don't have that problem.
