    Randal,

    Steven has one that casts a semi wad cutter, with adjustable depth hollow base. RCBS I think

    520...

    Maybe .520 would work sized down.

    Is there anyone out there nowadays that can do a good job enlarging the bands' diameter in a mold?
    A Lyman #445599 would be a prime candidate if someone can do the work.

    By the way, if you're using it in a venue where paper patching is acceptable, taking a #445599 out to a straight sided configuration should be easy and relatively inexpensive. I used that in a shallow groove green mountain barrel long time ago. Reminds me, I want to have that adjustable length plug make a deeper hollow, longer bullet and thinner skirt so I don't have to jack up the powder charge.

    50 cal mini hollow base

    I have a .520 RCBS hollow base N-SSA mold & it works very well.
