    This Armory mould is for the 50 US Army cartridge. The one pictured above maybe for the Krag, I will need to look up the numbers in the Ideal handbook to verify that.

    A very well made, and unidentified lubricating press.

    With all the brass freshly shined, it sure is pretty.

    In reference to response #10, would that be a Meepos Speedlube? There's a similar looking one on page 239 of Keith's "Sixguns"

    No, the Meepos design is very different than this.
