Ther are too many variables in bullet diameters to list. Alloy is the first culprit with mfg. differences being the worst. I try to use older Ideal/Lyman moulds if that's the bullets I want. RCBS and Saeco are way more consistent, but both have some smallish diameter if the alloy isn't right. Trial and error is the rule here- try some with your alloy and mike them. More antimony will make them bigger and harder. Some undersized moulds simply have to have the bands opened up. There is a place out west that can open up a small mould and his repair work is pretty fairly priced. He also offers HP conversions and Cramer style HP work.
