    Belding & Mull

    Combination catalog, reloading information, cast boolit book. They were loose leave and can by found in any number of configurations. Apparently the factory sent them out based on what type of information the person requesting one inquired about.
    This one is from 1928.

    Wow! Never saw one that early.

    I count myself lucky to have found one early enough to list the Belding and Mull bullet mould designs. After they stopped making those and went to jobbing Lyman/Ideal moulds, the reference value went down considerably.

    If you have a B&M “Visible” powder measure, the charts definitely help to get you close on the settings, although of course a lot of the powders are obsolete.

    I treasure my letter from B&M circa 1980 that said, Sorry, no more parts available for the B&M Straightline reloading tools. Still has my tearstains on it.

    Bent Ramrod, I feel your pain at not being able to get straightline parts, my B&M 28 is on my keyboard slideout under my computer screen, I like to charge 06 and Krag cases and seat bullets with it while watching WW-2 movies and westerns on U-tube.
