Are you asking how well it does, or trying to sell the mold? I've used it with average results, but got far better results with the NOE .314 129gr bullet sized down to .311 and powder coated. The heavier 160 did perform adequately out of my CZ 527M and vz-58, but nothing to write home about. Lee also makes a 155 grain mold.
If you are looking for a mold, VERY sorry - I literally just gave this one away.

I have the mold just wondering if anybody has used it in the milsurps that shoot .312 bullets .

Are you wanting to shoot that in an AK. That’s one of 5 cast bullets l use in my 30/06 and 30/30 sized down to 310. Seems heavy for an AK.

Not really .303 enfield , 7.7 arisaka , and the 7.65 argentine are my cast bullets of choice , really looking to shoot on the cheap as bullets without shipping when available are .40 cents apiece . @ 30.00 dollars a box an afternoon at the range quickly turns into a 100.00 dollar bill when available of course.

Then it should be good but mine drops at slightly under 312. It doesn’t matter to me cause I’m sizing to 310. I have dozens of Lee molds and for the price they’re hard to beat.

Yes I’m firing them pretty hot to not use checks . I plan on trying powder coated without checks in the 30/30 cause I can’t get much over 1800 FPS with the micro groove barrel.

I am at home and can access my data - that bullet powder coated and gas checked performed well in the CZ 527M bolt action carbine over 21.5 grains of AA#1680, COAL 2.19, for an average velocity of 1871 FPS. This same load was over long for the BREN 2 MS in 7.62x39mm, when I had one. For a milsurp it should do just fine for cheap plinking.
