    I took a chance on a 429-225-rf, and C314-140-SP.

    I wonder how they managed to get 430 grain bullets in a 35 caliber mold, as per #106 C359-430.

    What is the 462-250rf intended for?

    Not much of a sale, anything I was slightly interested in was 'coming soon'. Its a sale as its apparently all the stuff nobody wants.

    With Lee, you get what you pay for. That said, I do buy a lot of their stuff!

    If nobody said it yet, "coming soon" means it's already sold. I bought mine just a few hours after I saw the post, and all but one was in stock. I got both my molds today. The 314-140-SP is not what I expected, but the 429-225-rf looks like a good design. Much better than the 429-200-rf Lee stocks. Both are Lee new style molds, nothing visibly wrong with them. Both have a name on the box, so I assume it was group buy where somebody didn't pay.

    I received my mold today and it looks good. Has one small flaw in one cavity I saw before buying it.
    I'll cast some next week when I have a few days off and see how it works.

    Bought two of these one is the 431-160 this is a nice looking mold and a 311-100 this mold also looks good but all the cavities are cut for gas checks so I’ll see how this works TL in my 32-20 revolvers. The 44 will be used in my Charter Arms Bulldog. Tim

    Got mine today, one is used, or they are now smoking them. Two others are the same despite having different descriptions on the order list.
    Maybe that's why they were $25.

    Got mine. The 429-225. I really like the profile. As stated above I think its a better shaoe and weight vs their 200g round flat. The box mine came in also had a name on it and “cast boolits” written on it.

    I cast some from mine the C358-260. The nose came out the same diameter as the driving bands.
    My Whelen has a long lead but I will still need to seat deeper than I like. The weight was close to 300 grains (don't remember right now).
