For economy  i am casting bullets for the 303 (plus my range has restrictions on jacket heads being used on our range plus there is a 2000 ft/sec, 1400 ft/lbs MV on lead bullets), i am using a N.O.E mould 316299 and they are casting out at about 211 grains and using 22 grains of IMR4227. 
My question is what cast bullet combination are the forum members using for best accuracy.

Regards

Side question... your range prefers cast lead bullets over jacketed bullets? Never heard of that.

Different Country/Continent. This will be a small bore indoor range with a steel backstop intended for small bore and pistol shooting.
 
For these ranges I load a 160 gns. lead  (with 10% tin) gas checked bullet over 9gns of Red Dot.
Personally I find this uninteresting and restrict my full bore shooting to sensible distances ( 100 to 1,000 yards at Bisley.
