    Picked up three molds while in Tulsa this past weekend.

    Two used Lyman single cavity molds. They look to be in good shape and $20 each.


    308-334: Per my internet searches, this appears to be good for 1903A3.
    320-366: Per my internet searches, I might be able to use this for my 8mm Maser if it doesn't drop to small. If it does, maybe I can PC to get the diameter up.

    One New Old Stock mold:

    Lyman 457-124: Didn't really need this one but didn't have any RN molds. So, thought I would give this one a try in my 45-70 Pedersoli Rolling Block. Might try it in my Marlin's as well. Found it with a 20+ year old sticker for $59.

    After shooting my Buddies bullets, bought the NOE 250-Keith for my 44's. Wanted the HG #503 but hate the wait time and NOE had one in stock.

    Lyman 457124h from another member, it casts quite nicely. Already have a few loaded for my 45-70 for next weekend.

    I picked up a 44 caliber Lyman "devastator" 250 grain hollow point mold and a bag of gas checks. It's 112 degrees outside right now, so it will be next week before I can try it out.

    Our last “ever” group buy, MP .402, 170 grain, HP mold, showed a couple hours ago. FedEx did a number on the box but the mold looks great like all MP molds I have bought. I stripped it down and am cycling it in the over a few times to build up some patina. Figured I would try the deep pin first. Then a few penta. Going to try 16/1 pewter and pure lead with a BH of 7.5. I’ll PC it and run it in my Glock 20. Should be a hammer.

    Not today, but a few days ago received a couple of 2-cav moulds in super-nice condition from a member here; 356242 and 41032.

    I tin all my molds. I just like to run them way to hot. Figured I’d try and put a patina on my new mold this time around that’s a little more build up than some heat cycling in the oven. I used vinegar and salt mixed. I suspended the mold above the hot solution for an hour or so. Had some darker spots and a little turquoise coloring so I wiped it off with a paper towel soaked in the solution. I did heat cycle it afterwards but don’t think it made it much darker. Should hopefully keep tinning at bay for a while.

    Have you tried a brass blackening chemical? I think Birchwood Casey makes it.

    That looks about as good a patina as I've been able to get. Miha's brass is hard to tarnish.

    It isn't durable, it wears off with use. Tripplebeards patina will last.

    I finally found a long sought after Lyman 358101, baby wadcutter. Always wanted to try something like this in a few 38 Spl revolvers that reside here. Especially the S&W 12 and 37 Airwieght snubbies, that I found in the past few months. Like to make some easy/ light loads, to get these 50+ yr old revolvers making holes in paper again! Bill in MA

    Although they’ve been sitting in my inventory for years, I used two hollow point molds for the first time this week. One is a Lee 158 grain .358” SWC and the other is a Lyman 457122E.

    My 4,000th post. Only took me 15 years.
