Default 16 Gauge Slug Mold

I've been looking for a 16 gauge slug mold for a LONG time. Recently I went looking for a mold for the recently purchased Cape Gun chambered in 16 gauge and 10.15x61r Jarmann, which has a bore of about 0.406". I found this place: http://accuratemolds.com/index.php

This is quite a place! This fellow does NOT use a "cherry" to make his molds. Instead, he uses a CNC lathe. What that means is:
1) The cost of a CUSTOM mold is the exact same as a "catalog" mold. There is no "set-up" fee.
2) Within his machinery constraints, there is pretty much nothing one can't have. (Have a look at his constraints. They're very wide.)
3) DELIVERY TIME IS THREE WEEKS!
4) Cost for a single-cavity, aluminum mold is $77 without handles. The same mold in brass is $90; in steel, $123. (These for the 16 ga bullet mold. Smaller bullets are less in brass and steel.)

Here's a 600-grain (1 3/8ths ounce), 16 gauge bullet:


I'm pretty jacked up about this! I've been looking for a 16 gauge cast bullet mold for a LONG time! Now I can even design my own if I care to! This a big deal to me.
