As with many others my first was a Lee. Back in the early 70's I had just gotten into muzzleloaders and bought a .440 mold for my 45 cal. cheap, really cheap, longrifle. Still have and use the mold but the rifle has been gone for decades. Round ball molds are the only Lee molds I use. All the rest are Lyman, RCBS, or Accurate with one NEI for my 45-90. Must be over 50 molds in the shop.
