    Help with a mold id. Lyman 356242

    I found this mold in a plastic bag under my loading table in a box under other stuff and don't remember buying it.

    The Lyman mold is marked 356242DV and under that is 298. In the bottom left corner on the same side is 2 H.

    So, do I have a 90gr 9mm mold? What puzzles me is that this is a weight i'd never buy as I use 115gr or heavier in this caliber.

    Teemu, I went to that table for a look. I was hoping someone could tell me which from the stampings without casting some. 121gr is more likely for me but if I got a good deal who knows?

    The 121 grain version will have two lube grooves. The 92 grain will have only one lube groove.
