    Looking for full diameter round ball mold for 12 ga (.732) & 20 ga (.625)

    Looking for full-diameter round ball molds in 12 and 20 gauge. Source? Manufacturer?

    Would like something in the area of .732. (12 ga) and .625 (20 ga).

    Not looking for .690 or .600 molds.

    Thanks in advance.

    Mihec had a group buy on 0.732" brass moulds. You might check his site to see if there are any left.

    Jeff Tanner in the UK will make what you want for RB mould so he'll do both for you. I don't think anyone else does 0.625".

    Lyman makes 0.735" which I have and it works fine. I've shot them in smoothbore of 0.734" and rifled gun with 0.727" groove diameter.

    Thanks. Just ordered a Lyman .735” round ball at optics planet.

    The search continues for full-sized 20 gauge round ball (.625” ish).

    Smoothbore or rifled for the 20? couple of good full bore options for rifled 20 gun. The .575 in shotcup works in 20 smoothbore.

    Jeff Tanner in Essex: he has made several RB moulds for me. http://www.jt-bullet-moulds.co.uk
