Thread: Lee .459-405-HB mold

    Lee .459-405-HB mold

    I bought a lee .457-340 F B mold starting out,not realizing it was too small in dia.
    If I had been reading this site before I would have known.but as I say just starting in45/70. Realizing now I need a larger bullet. Probably .459.460, has anyone tried or using the lee .459-405 -HB mold. I have read the threads on increasing dia. Of molds but I really don't have the time or patience to go there.

    I have the Lee .459-405HB mould and it works great for .460-.462 diameter boolits.

    Yooper003: the 459-405HB is a great bullet for 45-70s. My Henry loves it. Don't give up on your 340 mould, it isn't that much too small. Powder coat up a few to gain a little girth and see how they fly. Gp
