Several years ago I bought a nice 03a3 from a member here. He used it to win many matches back when. His advice was use the load he used, or go off diking around. I have a very old Ideal single cavity that I 'beagle' up a tad but would like a new mold. .311 would be good, double cavity. Where to find my new mold?  ( Yes, I went off diking around and have come back to this bullet). The 308334 is accurate in the 30-06 03a3 and fits nicely in the case neck, like it should.

You might want to take a look at the NOE web site. They have quite a selection of 30 cal  molds, some of which are clones of other makers. In my “03” versions of the Lyman 311299 and 31499 work very well. And NOE's clone of the Lyman 311332 shoots very well in my old Israelie  K-98 7.62x51 military match gun.

The most accurate 30 caliber bullet that I have personally used is the 200gn NEI DD design. I've used it with very good results in several guns.

I have 3 favorite  "go to" molds for the Springfield M1941 MC 03A1 and the Rem 03A3:

Lyman 311291 purchased directly from factory, has worked Very Well in the M1941. Back in 2017, with the 311291, I shot my best MMS score with the M1941- 392-14X

But lately, I use my 311334 that I got directly from Lyman 30yrs ago back in my IHMSA Sil. days

or a later purchased (20yrs ago) Lyman 311299. They buck the wind better than the 311291 and we have had windy matches.

Issue, shot the Rem 03A3, shot my best score of 363-7X with the 311299

Last month came close to my best score with the M1941 and the 311334,  a 391-13X

Also, I am having good (for me)  results in Schuetzen with my Brg /Hart barreled 32-40 Rem Hep

and the 311299, w/o gas check.

All Great bullets.
