    WTB Ideal 291379 for Ross 280, also 375 Ruger brass

    Reasonably sure the title says it all.

    Need the mold. And brass to form into 280 Ross.

    Got one?

    Want to sell it?

    Want to trade it for something?

    I got lots of something.

    Let me know what kind of something that you want.

    Thanks!

    Got to be one of these on someone's bottom shelf way in the back that you would like me to own.

    Maybe a Lyman # also, I don't know when they stopped making them, if it was after Lyman bought the Ideal company and started putting their name on the molds.

    Sent you a couple of PMs. Can't help with the mold, but I may be able to help with others.

    Might PM BCall [https://castboolits.gunloads.com/sho...-Lyman-291379] as he recently acquired that mould.

    Thanks, I did PM him yesterday on the long shot he still had it.

    Unfortunately the post is from 2010, not quite recently, but what the heck, I figured I'd try anyway. Haven't heard back from him yet.

    Got my fingers and toes crossed.....

    Still looking for this mold, groove diameter on this rifle measures at .290.

    I've got a NOE 137 grain .290 mold on the way, supposed to get here today.

    Figure I can beagle the mold to get a little fatter boolit, going to be Ben's Liquid Lube until I get a sizer die made.

    I've got concerns about feeding with the NOE boolit though. It's got a wide meplat and I've had feeding issues with this nose profile in other rifles.

    What doesn't help feeding is this a Mauser, not a true Ross. Bolt face is a little different and I'm using 7mm Rem Mag brass. Rim diameter is a little small.

    Tried Quality Cartridge "correct" brass, (@ $6 each!!!) it has the same too small rim. Apparently it works in a true Ross but not in a custom Mauser built in England.

    The 7 Mag feeds ok with a NOE round nose 7mm boolit. Extracts if you hold the rifle above 45° when working the action.

    Long story short, still looking for THIS mold.

    Anybody?

    The guy with the mold is only an occasional visitor, hasn't been on in a over a month, still holding out hope that the mold is on the back shelf and he'll find it.


    Anyone else got an old weird mold they want to get rid off?
