    My big bullet mold auction buy came today!

    Hello all,
    I picked up all of these up at auction in one group. NEI 451-255, Saeco 017 350 FPGC, LBT 452-350-WLN-GC, LBT 452-360-WFN-GC, LBT 452-310-OWC-GC, LBT 452-x.920-WLN-GC, LBT 280-WFN-GC, LBT 451-x835-WLN-GC and the Lyman 452-423. Some of the nose profiles are confusing on what they were designed for. If anyone has used some of the odd one's please give me some advice. Thanks in advance. Boats

    The Lyman 452-423 was the 2nd mold that Elmer Keith designed back in the late 20's. While originally designed for the .45 Auto Rim cartridge, this bullet works well in both .45 ACP and .45 Colt.

    Reminds me when I scored on a bunch of LBT moulds for 41 and 44 mag. I had never cast with LBT moulds before and it was an eye opener. I was amazed how well they cast and really like the sprue plate design. You sure got some nice ones, ENJOY!
