Mold for 470 Nitro Express

Post by TedH » Sun Apr 13, 2008 8:17 am

I'm wanting a mold for a 470 Nitro. I designed one here with a 70% meplat, .600" nose, 3 body bands and a Hornady gas check shank. I've not used this program before, so I don't really know what makes a good bullet. Any help would be appreciated.

Bullet design is largely a matter of personal preference.

Beyond that, here are some common mistakes to be aware of:

-- long unsupported nose

-- won't chamber

-- won't cycle (not applicable for a break-open action)
