Accurate Molds LLC

In my search for an obsolete bullet mold, I was led to Accurate Molds in Salt Lake City UT. Seems they can custom make a mold for you at a reasonable price. Anybody have any dealings with them?

I deal with this company. Their moulds are top notch. Delivery time is good.

Sent them a check yesterday for a custom double cavity AL mould. They said up to 4 weeks to make and ship back. I will post results when I receive mold.

Followup from OP. I received my custom mould today in the mail. Accurate informed me 3 days ago that my mould was completed and being shipped. Thus 20 days for a custom mould to be delivered to my door. Accurate says they need a max of 6 weeks to make my mould, I received mine in a little over half that.

As far a being satisfied, this mould is the best finished mould I have ever seen. When the halves are together, I can't discern the split line. Their molds will use RCBS, Lyman, or Lee 6-cavity mold handles.
I strongly recommend Accurate Mold LLC if you are in the market for a custom mold.

Waited till it was cool this AM & dropped a few. Since the molds are aluminum, I got perfect bullets on the first drop. I can't see the split line. Their sprue cutter works better than any other mold I have used.

When I first started casting many years ago, I used RCBS & Lyman steel molds.
One day I needed a mold of a certain weight mold & Lyman was sold out. It was at that time someone told me about Lee Aluminum molds (AL). When I first used the AL mold, I was surprised it warmed up so fast, no rust, no grease & store, they are lighter. Not to mention for the price of one double cavity steel mold, I can buy 4 Lee double cavity AL molds and they come with handles. No handles to swap around
I sold & traded all my FE molds and use AL exclusively now. Also the price of my custom mold was very close to the price of a FE mold.

Thanks for the recommendation
