    Found this site and lurked for awhile. Joined last week. About two years I decided to take the plunge and started reloading for a 9mm. Just used factory bullets to “see if I liked it”! Well, didn’t take too long to decide that it was getting a little expensive, so I looked into casting. I need to give a shout out (or maybe shout at!) Fortunecookie45lc for his videos on casting using a dipper. Again, I started with one mold “to see if I liked it.” That’s when the trap sprung! I now cast and load for 5 different rifle calibers and 4 pistol. Powder coat all of them also. Still haven’t found the savings because there’s always something else I “need!” Over 12 molds in about a year and a half. I was gona confess to having a problem, but compared to some on here I’m apparently ok. For now anyway 😳

    Uh, 30-40. I've only had time to cast with bout half, I like to scour eBay for old Lyman , modern bond, belding mull molds. I usually buy one a month. Lot of the time they need some TLC before they're ready to cast

    This made me cringe. One of the happiest days of my life was when I sold off my last Lee mood. The one good thing to happen after Sandy Hook was the inflated market. Nothing like selling used Lee molds for more than I paid. eBay was a lot better back then.

    Don't be sorry. Be proud of what you have that works well. I have four Lee molds that work well for me along with a couple of dozen molds from other manufacturers. I also have a couple of Lee molds that are temperamental, but can be make to work.

    Lee Precision products are where so many people started and still use.
    Yes, I like my NOE molds but I always keep going back to my Lee 6 cavity molds.

    I would buy a new Lee mold BEFORE a new Lyman mold, especially in multi-cavity.
    In my opinion, The new Lyman has gone to the birds. their quality control, warranty and customer service have gone down the drain.

    Don't get me wrong, I love (and have a bunch of) their old stuff (they used to be as good as RCBS)

    I don't mind Lee 6 cavity molds. I've probably got a dozen or more of them.

    I have put together a mix match of assorted molds since I started casting of around 20 or so and enjoy using every one of them even a 2 cavity lee for the 380 a friend picked up for 4.00 NIB for me at a little older gun shop .

    I’m just starting so am still in the 1-10 group. I was surprised to find how many were in the 30+ group. I have mostly Lee molds, they seem to work OK, but recently got an RCBS. There is a difference. I’m now getting ready to start investing in the higher dollar ones.

    I have several and they work well for me. Lee puts out equipment for those of us that like to reload or cast but don't have $100 to spend on a mold. All of my Lee molds cast perfectly well. I just dropped a bunch of 90gr 32H&R Mag boolits and they were fine from boolit #1
