What size do i need to order, how do i measure the bore. I would really like to get the i bullet mold for it? Any thoughts would be appreciated, ty..

Shorty, probably get a good set of calipers, the digital calipers aren't very pricey, and very accurate.
If you are looking to shoot conical, you also have a rifled barrel, your conical is probably going to have to be something like .541/.543.

Shorty here are some instructions: I'll also put under "Off Topic":

HOW TO ADD IMAGES/PICS:
1.) Click on "Host an image".
2.) A window will open. Click on "Select Files".
3.) Go to where your image is stored.
4.) Select all the images you want to add.
5.) You will see the images in the window that opened.
6.) Click "Send All"
7.) Click on the middle URL for each image that says "insert this image in editor"
8.) That's it your image will be added to your post.
This is just a detailed instructions: After a time or 2 you'll find it easy as pie!
