    I have a lee .379 250 mold. Not sure if this helps. Round is for a 38-55. I can be emailed at caspiker85@gmail.com.

    The .38-40 round actually mikes ~.401", so projectiles for a .38-55 would be too small.

    I still cannot believe that nobody has posted that they have one of these.

    I really must be looking for a unicorn to feed my unicorn....(Winchester 92 saddle ring carbine w/octagon barrel) ((lettered by Winchester)).

    I find a very rare rifle, dropped on me by a stroke of luck, and I cannot even find someone who even has the mold for it.

    LOL, I bought a Lyman mold similar to it, but the Real McCoy would be nice.

    Maybe you need a Lyman mould. Lyman moulds are not usually unicorn teeth!
