    Very kind of you Prime. I will think on it. If you come up with a price it would interesting to know if it is worth my while.
    Thanks again.
    Regards, Keith.

    Many thanks, now at least I know what is available & the cost. Too expensive, not that I can't afford it, but I don't think it is worth it. If I decide to make my own pellets, I think I will make my own mould.
    Regards, Keith.

    if you do some internet searching there are some tutorials in how to make your own using a pair of pliers as the mould; generally they would be some form of solid cylinder with a domed head so not as accurate as properly waisted diablo pellets but probably good enough.

    The pellets need to be swaged and trimmed after they've been cast to make them fit the bore tightly. I've not seen any moulds that will produce waisted pellets, I would be interested to find out if you know of any.
