    Walks replied to a thread LYMAN 452630 Mold in Cast Boolits
    The Lyman #452630 is bevel base. I just sold My 4cav and replaced it with a 4cav from MP with a flat base. The RCBS #45-201-SWC or KT has a flat base too. But they're only 2cav

    I have a Lee 2cav .451 RB mold. Only Aluminum RB mold I've ever used. Drops as good a RB as any iron/steel mold I've ever used. Good Luck to you, and Remember to always take extra caps to the Range.

    Used them for years without problems, until they switched to non-nickel plating in the early 2,000's. Then about 1 in 100 needed 2 hits to go off. The next 5,000 and everyone since has worked just Great.

    Walks replied to a thread Lee Mould Handles in Casting Equipment
    I modified an RCBS set of handles for My OLD 2cav Lachmiller molds. I also modified a Lee set last year. I think I prefer RCBS handles over all others.

    Of course there are times when you do catch a deal. Sold my last H&G about 10yrs ago. It was a 10cav #50 with handles. Bought it for $40 at a gun show in 1979. Just hadn't cast a 38 wadcutter in the 20yrs before that. Made $100. And some folks...

    1cav - $35 2cav - $50 4cav - $70 Then it depends on MANY factors. How bad do I want the mold ? Condition of the Mold ? Has it been abused ? Does it have rust on it ? Rust scars ? Any strange screws ? Do I have handles to fit it ? Do I...

    I grew up on it. My Dad loaded it in just about every cast bullet load with the exception of His Bullseye Competition Loads and Hot .357Mag & .44Mag loads. And that is a lot of .380, .38Spl, .44Spl , .45Colt, .45ACP Hardball. And a bunch of rifle...

    Wouldn't that be .327 Fed Mag. And It's a light cartridge. If you're going to put it in a heavy rifle, you might as well go with a bigger cartridge. I think the 1st batch of 1894CL's in .32-20 were Great Guns. Wish I still had mine. And...

    I will put You in My Prayers tonight. I know how hard it is to watch a Parent suffer until the end. We had to do it twice. My Wife and I are hanging on by our fingernails too. Prayers help sooth the Soul.
