How would you compare C&J 240 vs. 341 or 318 lasts?

Do you wear the same sizes for these lasts or do they differ?

I only have one of each, but here's my take:

240 - pure rounded toe, not elongated, conservative, I would not be surprised if CJ said they used this last 100 years ago

341 - slightly elongated, slightly sharper point, flatter toe, modern but still classic-looking.

I would prefer 341 usually in most cases

Thank you Tarmac for your contribution. The thing is that I am trying to see whether or not a person who owns shoes from both lasts wears the same size or not.

For instance, do you wear, say 10.5D for 341 last but 10D for 240 last?

Oh sorry, I somehow missed your question. I wear the same size in both, although they are both US size conversions (one BB Peal, the other CJ Barneys).
