That's .001"-.002" over.First thing you need to do is slug the bore on each of the rifles and measure the groove to groove dia.,bore dia. can vary widely in each rifle and you will need to cast a bullet that between .01 and .02 over that groove dia.
I use the Lee TLGC 160 gr. bullet in my Mosin M44,my bullets drops right at .313 and 165 grs. using plain old WW alloy. I apply one coat of my Lee Alox/Johnson's Paste Wax tumble lube mix let dry then apply the GC with a Lee .314 push through sizer and then apply the second coat of TL before loading.
I use the C.E. Harris load of 16 grs. of Alliant 2400 which shoot about a 1" [email protected] yds. in my M44 with factory sights,MV runs about 1500+ on the chrono. I use the same bullet with 12.5 grs of 2400 in my SKS rifles for a light plinking load as well as sizing it down to .311 for use in my Sav. 99 in 300 Sav.
The main thing is to use a bullet that best fits your bore for both accuracy and to eliminate leading,depending on your bore size you may need to go up to a .314 dia. bullet mold or larger. Lyman and several custom mold Co's sell molds of various sizes.
