bullet mold ideas?

I'm currently loading with an old supply of 50 cal LEE R.E.A.L bullets.
I like em but at some point, unfortunately, I will look run out. I'm lookin for somethin else close, maybe a little heavier, say 350 grains? Its comin out of a 1:28 quicky twist green mountain long range hunter. Is that a good weight for such a barrel?
Comments? suggestions?
I appreciate all the help you guys can offer?

I like the 370 grain Maxi-Ball, I cast my own, but i think they are still sold under the Thompson Center Maxi Ball name. My Black Mountain Magnum is a 1:28 twist also and they are very accurate.

Many options here.

True and I have gotten better performance with the TC Maxi-Hunter and the Hornady Great Plains. There are just too many good choices out there when refering to conicals. ....

Be Safe !!!
