You know, after you have cast a bit, you will probably end up with 8-10 molds L@J

I thought I had them all shown, but later found a couple more, plus the antique round ball "bag molds" and a box of molds needing attention, like sprue plates, screws, etc  that I didn't take pictures of.

I think I've still got about 10 after giving some away that I didn't think I'd need anymore. I sure do wish I'd kept that 452/255 grain Kieth tho.

I've been reloading for a while now Chris. But I never did any casting. Until now that is.

Buy what Mark? All the stuff I got? Or the lead?

I'll go check it out.

This is the "knocker" I use 99% of the time, open the sprue plate or tap on the hinge pin if a bullet/ball hangs up. I made this probably 25+ years ago out of scrap and a spare handle.

That's a nice looking knocker Em.

I received my shipment from Midway today. And this is the knocker I got. We'll see how it works out.

Heck, I could have sent you mine. I made it and never used it! Looks very similar.

Just a suggestion, but if you want more Lee stuff, order from Titan Reloading. They are located in the same town (Hartford) and have the best prices, charge only actual shipping. I get a discount from Lee, but Titan's prices are less than my discounted price!
