    In the past 6 monts I have been gradually acquiring .45 and .44 molds.

    First a New old stock Lyman 452374

    Then a Saeco #420.

    Then I propsed a slight design modification to the Accurate 45-195T. Tom was kind enough to accept the modification and the 45-185O ( the O for my son Owen, hopefully a future shooter and bullet caster but right now he is just a precocious 4 year old) was born. I now have an iron 3 cavity 45-185O awaiting its first casting session.

    I got a new to me, 2 cavity Ideal 3118 yesterday. Today on my lunch break I cast up 63 sweet, 120 grain pills. After a proper heat up those little beauties just fell right out. The previous owner either rarely used it or treated it like it was gold plated. It is a very sweet mold. I have a Ruger SSM chomping at the bit to send those babies down range.

    Well, I really lucked out today. Went and bought a box full of odds and ends of shooting stuff that was advertised locally for $40. There was mixed bag of .22 rimfire, old .38 S&W ammo, 12 gauge, .410's and 3 1/2" 10 gauge ammo. There was .38 Special brass and .44 Mag brass plus a bunch of pre-cast bullets in .44 some raw and some lubed and sized. The find of the day for me was that in that box was an old Lyman single cavity mould c/w handles in #429438, the 180 grain .44 calibre full wadcutter target bullet. I've wanted one of these for my S&W 624's in .44 Special for a while. Had a bit of surface rust on the mould and handles, but the cavity is clean and looks to be perfect. Happy, happy, happy ...

    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!

    New never used Lyman 280473G. Never had a steel or iron mold before. It cast beautifully today. Unbelievably easy drop, perfectly aligned blocks. It heated quickly and I could maintain a quick pace with no overheating.

    sigep1764,
    Some of the 280473 molds drop pretty large and will shoot in 7mm.
    Had a rifle it shot great in while silver plating the bore with gobs of moly lube. Go figure.

    Just bought my first brass mould from Old West. I bought a dual ignition Ballard in .44 rimfire a little while ago that came supplied with an adaptor cartridge to shoot black powder with .440" round balls using the percussion nipple. I thought I would go one better and I bought this .440" x .418" heeled .44 Henry rimfire mould to try in it instead of round balls. (The Ballard I bought slugs at .440" groove.) Hopefully this will give me better accuracy than with round balls. I'll make up some more cartridge adaptors so that I have more than one to work with and then I will get this old girl up to the range and barking again!

    Not today but Wednesday of last week was a big day.

    The postman delivered a package of 5 molds from Accurate Molds and a mold from NOE.

    The Accurate molds are all 2 cavity irons. I really love these iron molds as they are fuss free.

    They are:
    31-170E for my.30-30
    31-200L for my .303 Brit
    38-250B for my .38-55
    38-355CG for my .375/444 Marlin
    43-220C for my 44-40


    The NOE is a 360-183-RF GC for the .357 Maximum.

    Being in Australia, shipping is expensive so i try to wait until i can spread the cost over multiple molds.

    Picked up a NOE 359-172 WFN RG4. My third NOE. I’m used to Miha’s Cramer style so there’s always a bit of a learning curve for me with NOE’s HP molds. Delightfully I had zero issues with boolits sticking in the mold.
