    Top Punch Chart?

    Way back in the dawn of time, when I started casting, I had the current Lyman cast bullet book. Not sure but I think it was the first Lyman, glossy cover with a white plastic binder strip. It seems like I remember that either there was a chart of molds and top punches or they listed them by mold number with a picture and the G number.

    Is there anything available online that would give the mold and G numbers for molds going back 40 years or more.

    I've been digging through 40+ years of reloading "stuff". Some of it is going down the road as I see no reason I would ever use it again. Some is kind of like meeting an old friend. And some is even coming in under the heading of "Where the hell did I put that?"

    I found a .243 sizer that has been used but I don't remember ever casting a bullet that size. I have a .457 sizer but have never owned anything in that caliber. I had a .41 mag back when but apparently I never cast for it as I haven't found a mold or sizer.

    "Is there anything available online that would give the mold and G numbers for molds going back 40 years or more."

    Don't know about on-line, but Lyman's Cast Bullet Handbook, 3rd edition, was first published 30-years ago and has a comprehensive listing of moulds and their corresponding top punches and seating stems.

    Just another little reason why...

    Cast Boolits is the best site on the planet!

    Thank You!
    "The rifle is a weapon. Let there be no mistake about that. It is a tool of power, and thus dependent completely upon the moral stature of its user. It is equally useful in securing meat for the table, destroying group enemies on the battlefield, and resisting tyranny. In fact, it is the only means of resisting tyranny, since a citizenry armed with rifles simply cannot be tyrannized."
