I have a mold that dad uses in his 40-82 I could send if you would like as well? That rifle has near zero freebore I can check the dia for you, it was designed for a 14.5 twist barrel and was designed by Arnie.

Or If you read this Arnie, would that bullet work or Wayne?? I can make some up this weekend if so.

Matt, your Dad's rifle is 14 twist. His bullet would be too long for TexasMac's rifle at 16 twist.
But, thanks for the thought to help Wayne's way into our PP World
