Those are works of art. How do you make such a mould in a little more detail? How are yours different from a store bought?

The ones you buy are cherry cut and made using a mill and like in video .

The ones I make are lathe cut and I can control each band and lube groove in depth and width of the mold . Plus custom fit to each gun and the different alloy mix I use . These 3 alloy will cast 3 different size bullets in the same mold . And you NEVER size target cast bullets since the bullet band are 3 or 4 different sizes you must pan or hand lube each bullet . If you look at bullets in pics the bullet seam are super hard to see . You can't get a cherry cut that good .
