    .177 pellet mold

    Does anyone know if someone makes a .177 pellet mold.
    I may just machine a couple out if nobody knows of any current manufacturer.

    I don't know of anybody making 17 caliber pellet molds.

    But, I have had some difficulty keeping the temperature up in the mold blocks casting 224 45 grain bullets.
    By cutting off a cold draft and casting quickly, good bullets could be made.

    Had this wild, untried idea that possibly a smaller than standard size set of mold blocks could be kept up to a decent casting temperature with the small amount of hot lead needed to make a few pellets.
    To lazy to chase arrows.

    kavemakel -- Coincidentally, a thread re .177 moulds is currently active on this forum -- at http://castboolits.gunloads.com/show...7-pellet-mould . Rather than rewrite others, as well as my comments -- you may wish to check this out.
    BEST!
