Magma makes a 185 grain H&G 68 clone, I've got the bevel base version I've cast about 10,000 bullets from. I think Magma's spure plate design is far superior to the rest, its spring loaded to keep the proper tension and the wings on the plate make it easy to turn the plate with your free hand. Make sure to ask for them to be tapped for RCBS handles, only cost a dollar or two.

I have a ton of moulds. Top of the line would be used h&g 68 for 200 gr , l can't make any recommendations for a good 185.

For volume l recommend the Lee 6 cavity 200.  #90310 iirc

It looks like the San Diego h&g 68 . The other Lee 200 short point is also good, has a longer bearing surface and 2 thin lube grooves.

I have a 4 cavity Lyman that I would also sell for a reasonable prive. I have to look up the design #.

I also have a bunch of molds. Never owned an H&G but hope to find one some day. I've cast a lot of good bullets with a 6 cavity. Lee. I also have a 4 cavity NOE. Just bought an Accurate for my 32. Really nice mold. The aluminum molds heat up quickly and are easy to use.

Thank you all for suggestions.  Trying to wrap my head around information I collected before moving to the next step.

Rcbs 452-201-swc is as good or better than my h&g 68
