    Don't know anything about it... But, throw it my way that would keep my 41 mags happy. Sure beats a 2 holer! Looks like a beautiful bullet.

    Those cavities look like they could be a plain-base version of an NEI two-holer I had a few years back. Shot so well in my DW that I had Walt make me a TC version w/o the wadcutter shoulder for sillywhets. Unfortunately, no longer have either mold: threw in the TC version when I sold the DW to another IHMSA shooter and, later, traded the SWC for something or other.

    Heres a few that were cast by the original owner. I may melt them down as they have some blemishes plus Im not sure of the alloy.

    I have never heard of the brand. The cavities look nice, the stamping seems to be angled and looks like it was done by hand. I would guess it is a small custom shop. Does the sprue plate resemble any known manufacturers?

    Have ya made any of them yet? How do they shoot? Sure looks good, would make feeding the 657's and the DE much easier!

    Grinch; I have an identical mould, but in 45 caliber,250 grain. Bought it in the early 80's from a company in El Paso, Tx, which later moved to another location, with a new name---don't know why original owner sold, nor do I remember the
    name of company. Memory starts to get fuzzy with age, 83. Not much, but a little info for you.

    Looks like an updated version of the Lyman 410032

    I'll bet that mold was made by Walt Melander. He had a machine shop in El Paso in the '60's and later moved his shop to the northwest. He also later made boolit molds.

    Familiar, yes.... I have two from C-P, both truncated cones, 6 cavs.... 1 is 358150 and the second is 451-205.
    They cast well, shoot well, and are obviously quality built.
    They dont look a lot like my early NEIs from Walt, but they could be... I would like to know more, but came up empty looking for answers a long time ago.

    Do not know the maker but it looks like a good mold. Make some good bullets with them and give them a try.
