Fingers, you are way ahead of me in both the flask and bullet mould departments, of which I know nothing. All I can say is very nice and astute. This is where you shine, among other places.



All I got to say is...WOW!

I have one mold and 3 flasks. I'm way behind.

Nice collection Fingers.

All my moulds are modern...Lyman, Lee, etc. I do love those old ones, though. Same appeal as old guns.
