Does anyone make a 45 gr .22 mold? With .22 rimfire being scarce...thinking of casting some bullets for .22 Hornet and just loading to .22 LR velocity.

All I have found are 55 gr molds.

I just checked Accurate Molds. The smallest they make are 270 cal.
Iirc Lee has a .224 mold . but I'm not sure what weight.
I know Nosler has some really light 22 jacketed bullets @ the Shooters Pro Shop.


Phil Shoemaker : "I went to a .30-06 on a fine old Mauser action. That worked successfully for a few years until a wounded, vindictive brown bear taught me that precise bullet placement is not always possible in thick alders, at spitting distances and when time is measured in split seconds. Lucky to come out of that lesson alive, I decided to look for a more suitable rifle."

Today I started with the 22 Hornet and a little 40gn plain based bullet from MP molds.


Bad Ass Wallace says MP - Molds makes one...but I can’t find it on their site.

Just about everything is out of stock these days. My Lyman mould after the GC weighs out at 62G.


Never mistake motion for action.

check NOE and Arsenal.
I know arsenal has a plain base 22 cal mold that comes in at 38grs.
it was designed for the 218 BEE, but does just fine in the 223 at 1200 fps.
