    While I appreciate the PM's wanting to purchase the mystery mold for as much as $30.00 more if I can find handles. This thread is to find out who may have been the manufacturer. When I am indeed serious about selling I will promise to put it in the...

    Construction is just like a Mountain Mold. Must be an early custom size...no numbers.

    I didn't buy the thing to punish myself. If I wanted to do that I would have purchased a S&W 500.

    I'm making a guess trying to get some idea of the diameter with a pair of calipers. The real way would be to dump some lead in it.

    Could possibly be but it looks like someone made a very nice cherry for that mold. Its dirty on the outside but I'm sure it will cast fine. I may just have to gently put it into the vice and pour some lead in it to finally see what it is diameter...

    It appears that I can't see too good. I think its roughly around .374+ something and possibly has been cherried for a gas check on the base of the bullet. Would that make it 8mm or somewhere around there? Tring to make a guess here without...

    This is an unmarked mold no maker ID and no diameter or weight. Looks to be .300-.358 or something close maybe. I don't have a small pot or handles to cast something and try it. What is it and what is it worth?

    That is a good point.Never thought of it that way but you are right. Maybe there will be rent to own starting up on reloading equipment for those not having the money for starting to load.

    I'll second that. Many people went out and purchased guns when obammer was in office fearing that they might never be able to purchase if they didn't do it right away. As a result some of those first time purchasers have dumped those guns they...

    Well I am unsure as to who might be reading this thread with respect to federal or state government. Pretty soon they will try to establish a maximum number of rounds for each gun you own and probably in the neighborhood of a box or two at most. I...

    I always thought it was worth it. My son however thinks I should have spent the money on pre-made plated bullets. I currently cast for 9mm, 38/357, 40 cal, 44mag, 45acp, and 45LC. I currently have 9K in 9mm 124gr rn bullets sitting on my reloading...

    I've read everything about the Lee, played with the Lee and purchased the Cabine Tree unit that was a heck of a lot more money. I like being able to look at the dial indicator instead to trying to guess with the Lee's paper that you try to match the...

    I absolutely never thought I would break down and buy both a SuPer Redhawk and a 629-6 44magnum. Well, took them both out for a test try Saturday. The results were as follows ....the Ruger actually had a better trigger pull than the 629. The 629...
