    Lord, make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. Grant me victory over my foes and those that wish to harm to me and mine. Let not my last thought be “If only I had my gun”; and Lord if today is truly the day that You call me home, let me die in a pile of brass.



    I am out of town, enjoy your holidays.

    A recent Google search showed this little treasure of reference material.

    Just curious why the mold I have with 582515 on it isn't listed? Any Idea's It is a single and looks like a 454424 a HP with 3 bands and the bottom is flat. T43950]he handle isn't a lyman nor a lee. Just curious if anyone might know something about it.

    That looks like a shiloh mold from the handles. And based on the hollowbase design, I'm fairly certain it is not an Ideal/Lyman mold.

    Also have a "mystery". Single cav round chamber (like small buckshot) with 360 and 49C stamped on it. Anyone know what size/weight it is? Can not find it on that chart or on their site.
    ETA--it is a Lyman

    I can't tell you how many times I've used the Ol'Buffalo Mold chart when buying or selling molds. A big thank you!

    Great chart. I added the top punch when I was first getting into casting about 10 or so years ago. I put it in an excel spreadsheet and did a boat load of copy/paste of pictures of the molds and then added the top punch. I found a similar chart in my wonderings around the internet, it looks like it came from three-peaks. Here is an example of what I did. OOOPPS Where it shows "bitmap" there should be a picture of the bullet, but for some reason it didn't copy from my Excel chart and I don't know why. (computers) There are probably errors but I spent quite a bit of time to get it as accurate as possible and has been a reference for me. Maybe you can show me how to copy the bullet pictures to here.
