I would get a .395 double cavity from Lee, then shim the mold with cigarette or receipt paper.

On their website under FAQs they discuss shimming a mold. They say you can go .010 before concentricity becomes an issue.

I have shimmed two 58 cal minie ball molds with excellent results.
I used receipt paper and lube to hold the shim in place.

Good luck.

I have a Lee double cavity .390 ball mold available. I bought it new but have never used it. Will ship it to your door for $25. (They are around $30 shipped from Track of the Wolf).

Thanks for the offer, but I have a .395. Got a Michael Hayes built 40 caliber with a Goodoien barrel that prefers .400.
