A friend just gave me three of his dad's moulds. My friend said he wanted to give them to someone who would use, enjoy, and appreciate them. Needless to say, I am delighted and grateful.
What are your thoughts on these moulds?
(1) 358432 wadcutter mould, 2-cav--boolits inside weighed around 163 grains.
(2) 358439 hollowpoint SWC, 1-cav--boolit inside weighed around 152 grains.
(3) 429421 hollowpoint SWC, 1-cav--boolit inside weighed around 230 grains.
Two sets of handles came with the moulds, although one is missing the screw attaching half the block. Any idea what the screw size is?
I've got all three moulds soaking in Kroil right now. In a couple days, I'll clean up the moulds. It'll be a couple weeks before I can begin casting with them.
Ive been casting just since January of this year, all with LEE moulds, so using these much heavier moulds will be new for me. I'll have to check into the standard maintenance and care for them.
By the way, thanks, guys, for all the information you share. I can't express to all you folks how much I appreciate all the knowledge I've gained here.
