Who's got 474 cast bullets?

I'd appreciate any information on locating someone who has or can make some plinking bullets for a 470 Nitro. Bullet diameter is .474 and I tried some .475 jacketed pistol bullets. Didn't really like having to close the breech so forcefully - even the .001 difference was noticeable. I'm looking for something in the 300-400 grain range, probably with a gas check. My knowledge of bullet casting is truly remarkable just because it is so non-existent. So I'm really open to suggestion.

RCBS makes a 400 grain mold in the .475 size - can that be sized down perhaps? What do I need besides my presses? I have an old rockchucker and a new, large lyman that was needed to handle the length of the 470 loaded rounds. Could someone buy some of these oversize bullets and swage them down for me? Ideas?  -

I sure enjoy my double rifle, but would enjoy it a lot more if I could practice at less than $1 per bullet!

Thanks!

I have some sized to .476 for the linebaugh that you could try. Im sure a machinist could take a .452 lee push through sizer and open it up to the right size for you and you could then use your reloading press to size them down to the size your looking for.

I cast a 460 gr gc bullet that should be near perfect for the 470. The only downside is my sizer is .476". The mention of having lee make you a custom .474" sizer is a great idea, as you can run any commercial cast bullet through it.
