Mike and GP100man, Although the wider front band is what Keith wanted in his Keith-type semi-wad cutter design, many of the mold makers have not Incorporated all the features in the "Keith-type" molds they make. For instance the center bullet in the first post shows the wider front band, but Elmer Keith specified that the grease groove be flat on the bottom to hold more grease and to his (Elmer's), mind, retain the grease better. I know that RCBS Keith molds that I have had all have the flat bottom grease groove not rounded like the early Lyman 429421 (.44 Keith type).
