Mould/bullet recommendation for 28-30, Stevens

Looking for ideas, fixed cartridge or breech.

This will be in a model 44, so would like to either keep the weight down or a bullet that does well at lower velocity to keep pressure down.

Any thoughts or if you have something available appreciated.

It would help a lot if you could give the groove diameter. There are a lot of new 7mm molds, most are in the .288 range and I think some as large as .290.

There are a few that will cast .285-6 though.

Bore slugs at a fat .285 and can not feel any loose spots, feels pretty consistent.

I'm assuming a standard 14 twist?

I thought it was a 13, but probably confusing that with the 25-21. It is the standard Stevens twist compared to the catalogs but would have to double check but memory is questionable.

Appears Frank can be of more help with his assumptions so its probably best to just let him work with you from this point on.

Don't be such a jackass. I asked a very broad question and both of you called me on not having enough information to get the help I am looking for. He may know Stevens better, but I don't think he holds the only useful knowledge that can help.

I've posted before about certain people getting in the way of helping less knowledgeable people because of their issues with each other. Bow out if you must, but your opinion is valued by me.

I will verify twist when I get home as that will make a big difference in he possibility of shooting a slow heavy bullet.

Was not trying to be a Jackass I wanted to help you with your needs and why I asked you what the twist rate was in the first place. Having a bit of a real hard and challenging day, not thinking real straight, have had better and just wanted to back out of the conversation. Frank is very capable and has the knowledge to help fullfil yours needs I just felt it best for me to back for now. If I see something here I can help you with after the information has been shared and if can then be of any help I will jump back in and do what I can. I Apologize for the attitude it was only going to get worse along with my day.

If it's a 14 twist or faster, this bullet mold should work and it's in stock:

One other thing, if your thinking of buying that mold, check your bore diameter, to make sure that the bore riding section of the bullet, will be within .002 of it.

No problem sir, probably should have included the smiley face or something. Bad days suck enough having some knucklehead piling on.

Twist verified at 1/14. Slug is 279/285

I have actually been looking at that mold and I think it would work. Should be stable at lower velocities, so reduced loads would work.

Any other thoughts?

Frank has recommended a bullet that should do well.
It is gyroscopically stable for your twist.
I generally shoot bullets .002 wider than my groove-to-groove diameter.

Caliber      0.287      Inches                  
Bullet Weight      154      Grains                  
Bullet Length      0.951      Inches                  
Barrel Twist      14      Inches/turn                  
muzzle velocity      1470      fps                  
Temperature      50      degrees Fahrenheit (59 is standard)                  
Pressure      29.92      inches of mercury (29.92 is standard)                  
                             
Sg =      1.64

This is one from Accurate that I thought about. It is on the edge for stability, making downloading less appealing. It would need to stay around 1500 fps.
