    Not actually counted but over 20. Since I have found affordable custom guys like Accurate, I seem to keep finding something else I "need". Compared to commercial bullets though, molds are cheap.

    if you actually know how many you have, you do not have enough!

    New to this, so two. Problem is one is not even in a caliber I own (357446 mold). Bought it for the handles. Both are ideal/lyman two cavities so the plan is to clean them up, cast a few bullets. Might trade/sell the the 357 to get the 10mm mold I actually need or hold onto it as an excuse to get another 357.

    5 years ago my answer was around 50. Now it would be "hundreds"

    Enough to keep shooting the calibers I shoot- but I need more.
    I look at every "WTS molds" that gets posted!

    I like molds. Steel. Brass. Aluminum. And some I made from graphite.

    I've only been casting for 5 months maybe less so right now I have 4 molds all .358 for my Blackhawk and .35 Marlin. All are 2 cavity Lee right now but I can't wait to upgrade when funds allow.

    Two. A Lee 6 cav 158TL and an RCBS 44-250-K. Pretty sure I need a 9mm Lee 6 cav for my Springfield R.O. and perhaps a rifle mold in 8mm Mauser or .308. I think 1 new mold a month is reasonable? But I also need a new Henry .357 carbine to help consume all boolits that Lee 6 cav is producing. And now that I think of it a 172 gr. .357 mold might be useful.........
