    About three times as many as when this Poll started.

    What's this need thing ...need doesn't have a thing to do with casting and moulds .

    Close to 50. That's ball park, as I'm to tired to walk up/out to my shop in the snow. I used pictures on my computer showing my casting boxes. Three mid tool boxes, one with 4 drawers, 2 with 2 drawers each. The 4 drawer and one of the 2 drawer boxes are full at 7 molds with handles per drawer, and the bottom 2 drawer has some room for growth, about 1/2 full. So that's about 50. Being real picky about buying new molds, and could - should sell off a couple.

    Just getting started and I have 5. A old Lyman 4 cav 148 wc in 358, a 158 swc lee in 358, a new as of yesterday 200 grn 358 gc 6 cav lee, and another new 310grn gc Lee 6 cav 430, and a 240 grn 6 cav tl Lee.

    Like I said, just getting started, need a few 458 molds and a couple 30 cal molds too, especially a 200 grn plus for subsonic 300 blk... Lots in my future...

    Wow! You guys with 30+ molds amaze me! Are you casting for others? To sell?

    At my age, I have trouble keeping track of 7-8 molds, lol! I cast strictly for my own use, and I don't have enough different calibers to warrant a lot more molds.

    84, I think. I keep finding more as we moved recently and haven't stabilised. I know at least three more that I loaned out decades ago.
    I now have four cavity Lymans in my favorite handgun styles, 358156, 357446, 358429, 429421, 429215, 429244, and 452460.
    All time faves, the above plus 454424, 311316, 311291, 457124, 22 Bator.

    I responded when this thread was quite young , I've 60 some now .
    At some point I had tried to pare things down to just a couple per caliber ....... It was fine for a 38 and 357 even the 9mm didn't run me over 2 but then came a 358 Win and a 380 ........
    45s , umm yeah , same thing , you can get by with 1-2 and feed most of of the pistols but add a rifle ........ I have 3 in 457 , 3 for BP and at least 5 in .452 .
