    405 Winchester.......or The 41 Magnum From Hell.
    I don't paint bullets. I like Black Rifle Coffee. Sacred cows are always fair game. California is to the United States what Syria is to Russia and North Korea is to China/South Korea/Japan--a Hermit Kingdom detached from the real world and led by delusional maniacs, an economic and social basket case sustained by "foreign" aid so as to not lose military bases.

    I think that is for his .405JES. I have been reading all of his posts because I really want one too.
    Hopefully when he gets a chance he will do a long write up on his new toy and put a lot of pictures in the story.

    I use my .412 for my 450/400 3" Nitro Express Ruger No. 1, except mine is the one Lyman cuts for the Win 405.

    I'm not Grmps, but I know what it is.

    It's a mold for conical balls for a cap & ball revolver. It casts a bullet just a little heavier than the RB would be, with a rebated heel to make loading easy, and a raised middle ring to give a nice clean shave as it's compressed onto the powder load. Mine casts beautifully, I hardly ever have to so much as shake the mold, let alone tap the hinge.

    I collect all things .32. If you have something you don't need, please let me know!
