Thread: Old Ohaus Mold - 0104 38-158-R

    Question Old Ohaus Mold - 0104 38-158-R

    I did a great deal and could buy some old Lyman and Ohaus molds. They sold it only because the molds are old.

    The one mold I could not find any information here in the forum is from Ohaus. It is an Ohaus 0104 38-158-R mold.
    Double Cavity for .38/.357 Caliber. Can any one provide me with some information or experience?

    That was the Ohaus copy of the 358-311 Lyman 158 RN mold. Prior to the 1970's, the round nose service 38 Special load was almost universally The police load. Mold makers gave the reloader a chance to copy the popular service load with inexpensive cast boolits. It is still a really accurate boolit, that shoots to point of aim in most older 38 revolvers, as well as seeing some service in the 38 Super and 9 mm cartridges as a heavy bullet load.
    3.5 grains of Bullseye or 4.0 grains of WW-231 will give you happiness when shooting that old Colt Official Police or 38 M&P S&W.
