    Looking for 38/357 Mold

    I picked up some powder coated bullets from SNS Casting to try and I believe they were cast with the Saeco mold. These projectiles worked really well in my 1873. The price on the Saeco Mold seems rather high at around $110 for a 2-cavity, so I was hoping our find a more affordable alternative. Does anyone make a clone of the Saeco 398 mold (158gr TCFN)?

    They were actually cast on a Magma mold. That's what the kool kids with auto casters use.

    I use a Lee 358 RNFP for my 357. It comes in 6 cavity, although I have the 2 cavity version. Great accurate bullet.

    Good looking boolits and the FN is better for speed.

    I fell in love with a CHEAP 1 cav. aluminum LEE 358-150 WC mold, the first mold I purchased, and spend hours turning out "Little Ash Cans" one at a time. I am saddened by its handle keeper-pin backing out at nearly 5,000 casts, but a judicious drill hole, tap, and set screw should help return it to service. I do not know how WC's would perform in a lever gun, but they have GOT to "sting a might" going through.
    If it was easy, anybody could do it.
