What does that have to do with a Model 94? Let me try to guess at your meaning... Wad cutters have no provision for gas checks. SEMI-wadcutters are available with such a provision. The model 94 is most often chambered in .30-30. Semi-wadcutters are not normal in .30 caliber. I use a 150gr round nose gas check bullet for many .30 caliber applications including .30-30. Before you atempt to load cast bullets in a rifle, you should first get and read the Lyman Cast Bullet Handbook. There are things to consider like alloy hardness. f you are going to send these down range at or above 2000fps, you will need a very hard bullet. Wheel weights are probably not hard enough. You will want at least 50/50 Wheel weight/linotype and a gas check.

Back to the original question, wadcutters may give trouble feeding through the action even if you can find an appropriate mold.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
