Those dies from China are about $800 but then you'll need the arbor press and whatever else to go along with it.I've had really decent luck casting 25 cal diablo style and 22 cal boat tails from molds that I bought from NOE. rsterne (Bob) design's some fantastic molds but not any for the 22 cal diablo yet.
everyone said they were nose heavy and wasn't accurate. ....I have a smooth twist barrel

They are much more accurate that the ones with the long cylindrical "fat" waists. Especially from FX ST barrels. Wayne's cast pellets (Bob's) look like JSB pellets known to produce good accuracy from FX ST barrels.The shape of pellet you presented (below) may work with conventional rifling, but will not work very well with smooth twist barrels:
Guys hold on for a week, .22 cal (head 5.52mm) 18.52 grain 5 cavity mould is under development. Its for my own use I have a local machine shop assisting me to make it. 0.01mm tolerance is difficult to maintain on a manual milling center so they are using a Japanese 3 axis CNC for it.
