    I run onto this quite some time ago. It is a great referance and use it often.
    If it doesn't shoot an ounce of lead, its a wimp load.

    Bookmarked - thanks!

    I'd love to find a Lyman 436218 - didn't know it (had) existed until now.

    Thanks for the nice compliment. I created that webpage as a reference to help me identify molds I see listed on eBay, etc. I welcome any photos and mold info not listed so I can make the page even more comprehensive and useful.

    An amazing resource there, I refer to it frequently. You did us all a favor, similar to why almost 5 years back I started CB, as a resource to myself but in the process helped a few other folks along the way.

    I welcome you to this board and hope you find it as helpful as I find your research and hard work.

    Another 'thank you' for this reference/resource.
    Just wondering if it would be possible to tweak it into a printer friendly format. It would be nice to be able to print hard copies of pages we're interested in to write notes on .

    It prints out for me pretty much as it appears on the screen if I set the printer to "landscape." Maybe, however, that isn't what you mean.

    BTW guys, in case you didn't know. Wiljen has some FREE software called Reloader's Reference that is easily downloaded and contains among other things a reference section that has a mold look-up that also includes Lee, NEI, RCBS, and SAECO as well as Lyman. It is super handy for loading and the reference section is astounding with the info it has.

    I have found it extremely useful.

    Gee and to think nobody asked if they could copy the chart directly from the PDF on castpics. I at least did get permission to reproduce it from old buffalo for CP.

    I actually downloaded a copy to my computer and saved it as a "Word" document. Every once in a while I go back to them to see if there are any additions.

    They are a great resource and I truly appreciate what they do for us all.
