    Mold Identification

    Can anyone identify this mold? The only markings are shown in the photo. Approx. diameter is 0.59". the point(or lack of) is what has me puzzled.

    Maybe it's a hollow base wadcutter. They are not pointed.....Maybe it's to big for that Shotgun slug? Only guessing......

    It's a Minie mould for a .58 cal. muzzle loader.
    Could be an old Shiloh mould. Ohaus also made this type of mould, but they usually stamped their name on the blocks.

    Are you looking to sell/trade it?
    PM me.


    P.S. (Forgot to mention)
    Please don't open and close a mould with the sprue cutter closed, it's a quick way to damage the top of the cavity.

    What mass caster said! (I'm thinking it's a Shiloh though.)
