Try powder coating a #3 buckshot. or you may be able to force a #1 buck through a .253 sizing die. Or get a lee 2 cavity mold blank and drill and polish a .254 hole.

Short of finding a used mould I think this is probably about as cheap as it's going to get . $79-99 2-5 cavities . New Lyman singles are $70-80 and double RCBS moulds start at $80 . Arsenal might do one . Redding and Hoch are likely to start at $100 and then get expensive .

Ahh, another 25 Auto reloader!

Heck, I'd sell you my mold for a $1M, just could not go lower.

Be sure you slug your barrel, these little buggers can vary.

I just let one go.. a lee 6 banger.. can’t remember the number... but I will tell you The 25 auto was the most frustrating cal I ever did... I know that some have figured it out, but it was wayyyyy above my pay grade. 22 cal is way easier for me with cast.. glad to see it go... it reminded me of my many many failures with that thing.

Danny, I poked around, and I have two special order Lee six cavity molds that I would sell.

One is a TL256-50-RF which has tangent ogive for fat chambers. The other is a TL255-50-RF with a secant ogive, can be sized down to .252”.

PM me if you are interested in price and drawings.

That's too bad, a cast bullet is a wonderful thing in the 25 Auto.

I use the Load-Master.

Get a group buy together and order a custom run from Lee. They already have the design, as they used to sell a .25 ACP mold.

https://leeprecision.com/custom-service ... let-molds/
Double cavity molds are $26.00 (min. 2 mold order required) and six cavity molds are $54.00, plus Shipping/Handling.
The setup and tooling fee will be waived on orders of 40 pieces or more.
