View Full Version : Hoch mold handles

08-15-2010, 06:39 AM
I bought a Hoch 377 350 BPCR mold from Midway for my Ruger R! 375 H&H last winter. No mold handles were available at the time. Midway lists 2 sizes in their catalog but doesn't show fitment. The Hock website is not of much help either. Does anyone know which size fits this mold?

after looking at Midway and Hoch...

$33.00 - Standard for Small Blocks
$33.00 - BPCR for BPCR Blocks
$45.00 - Modified for Large Blocks

you need the BPCR handels for the black powder cartridge rifle mold

hopes someone elese agrees with me

The ones that sell for $33 on the Hoch site are the ones needed. If you want to hear it from the horses mouth then call Dave Farmer who is Hoch molds in New Mexico where that spaceship landed back in 1947. They still have look a like models in the windows of the stores in town.

Thanks for the info guys. I guess the solution would seem obvious, but my previous internet search last winter, was "clouded" by one individual who reported that the smaller handles was the way to go.

if you have Lyman old style 2 cavity handles you can notch them for the sprue pivot and they will work fine.new style may work,but i haven't tried it.
