    H&G 4 cavity 358 158 gr. new to me

    Picked up this Hensley and Gibbs 358-158 SWC 4 cavity a while back with a big bunch of stuff from a guy who was getting out of reloading. Well my supply of 358 in 156-158 was getting really low so I tried out the H&G. Wow! Talk about a nice mold. Drops perfect boolits every time and with little effort. The mold has never been abused and actually nicely taken care of. Now I see why H&G molds are highly prized. I am greatful to be the owner of this one. The only problem I see in the future is trying to resist spending a bunch more money on H&G's.

    You came to the wrong place...this Enablers Every One. The place you need is Caster's Without Disposable Income.
    I wonder if a Go Fund Me site would do any good ?
    I made the same mistake buying an NOE mould....after nothing but Lee and Lyman.
    If there are better moulds .....I DO NOT want to know about them !

    Iíll have to agree with your sentiment. I started casting with two H&G molds in the box and absolutely love them. When opportunity presents itself and money is available I have picked up more but sadly that is an expensive addiction you wonít escape.

    And down the rabbit hole you go. I have 3 H&G molds & haven't come across one that I can't live without yet. I just keep looking and hoping.


    BTW what is the mold number on that mold? Just curious.

    I personally think it is a shame that with all the computer driven machinery and several generations with an answer for everything, the best bullet molds I have (H&G) are older than me.

    Good Luck with this. I got my first one a few years ago. Now I have several and I'm actively looking for at least 2 more. They really do cast great. I don't own any of the high end custom molds so I can't compare them.
