I just looked at lymans web site and was shocked to see the price of a dbl cavity mold @ 81.25$ then buy handles and top punch. Guess I'll not buy anymore lyman molds. I cast primarily because I enjoy the hobby but when the price becomes that high it becomes a situation in which I cannot enjoy it as much as I'd like. I know the price of materials is going up but I also haul steel and other items for a living, the price of materials has not gone up so much as that to raise the price that much.
I'm sure someone will try to justify the price increase but as I said I haul all kinds of steel, iron, copper, and aluminum and often see the invoice and the price of the materials has not justified that size of an increase over the last time I bought a lyman mold 61.95
