Bullet design help

Ok guys looking for some help. I would like to find some 600 grain lead bullets for my winchester 1886 or make them.

If anyone knows a source I'd sure like to buy some. If not I have a lathe and mill and believe I could make a cherry and then a mold. I'm not versed in bullet shapes however, but think I would want .510 diameter, about 1.37" long.....from there I'm shaky is there a book I could get to determine driving bands, olive, nose etc. Etc or anyone with any ideas. I'd sure appreciate any help toward these bullets.

Look at Accurate Molds Catalog; scroll about 2/5 of the way down this page to find four 600-grain 0.510 designs available.

I'll move this thread to the bullet casting forum where you'll likely get additional answers.

I saw that however I'm concerned the nose may be too long for the 1886
