    New Lyman #457125

    Here is a new Lyman #457125 500gr mold for .45-70. During initial inspeciton I noticed there was something funny about the alignment. Thought it was caused by a burr right next to one of the alignment pins that might guide the halves off-center. I removed the burr and adjusted pins out a bit to cut all the play but still, to me, the way how the halves come together looks worse than that of my .358" Lyman molds. Is this considered normal? Thanks for any advice.

    Send it back! That's what I would do anyway. New moulds should cast round boolits and the halfs should line up!

    Agree with hunter74. That's not right. Send it back.
