Hello guys, I'd like to ask you a question. I have a rifle Zastava M70 in 9.3x62 Mauser, with twist rate of 1:14.2. As I said before, I'd like to cast bullets for my rifle. Recently I have tried to extend in diamter a LEE mold .358 200rf to get .368 but I lost a lot of edge sharpness. My question is what mold in original version should I purchase. I'm open for any suggestion. P.S. I've read a bit of paper patching and I'm also interested if I can use that Lee mold .358 200rf for paper patching .368 because I haven't destroyed every cavity. Thanks in advance.

For my recently acquired JP Sauer 9.3x62 I have obtained the NOE 368-285-FN, an Accurate 37-250B, and as of yesterday the  Arsenal 368-280-RF in both GC and PB. My shooting to date is primarily with the ACC 250B. My load experimentation and casting is on hold right now due to the arrival of winter weather and medical priorities

This collection of molds is fairly representative of what is currently available. I hope that a 200gr. bullet mold might be offered soon inasmuch as 280gr and even 250gr bullets rapidly eats up my lead supply, considering that I am just punching holes in paper.

The NOE  285 gr. bullet works fairly well in my 9.3x57 Husky.  I haven't found the perfect charge for it yet, but I think 4895 and 3031 will help me there.

I have three bullets that I would recommend. I have a few others but don't have any history with them yet. All three shoot really well out of my CZ-550FS 9.3X62MM:

Lyman 366408 (245gr FN GC)
NOE 368-280-FN GC & PB
Hoch 368300 300gr FN GC
