    The great bullet mold swap

    So all the molds from @tommygun have arrived and I have sorted them into what I want for myself and some mates who also want things.

    I'm left with plenty to move along.
    My preference is to swap for any molds people have they don't want that might be useful to me or generally get a whole lot moving around through the forum.

    So please be aware that some of these Numbers are old and no longer listed with LEE and LYMAN
    A bit of a google will help
    And after Christmas I will fire up the lead pot and mold up a few projectiles in the unidentifiable ones and try and get a more accurate idea of what they are and how heavy they throw

    1- Lyman 2260091 357/38 special 38 cal 148 grain wad cutter molds only. No handles. Brand new in the box

    2- Lyman 2660496 6mm RN GC 84 grain New in box no handles

    3- 100x Hornady round balls .451

    4- 100x Hornady round balls .457

    5- Lyman 427 098 AV 439 2H looks to be a pistol mold

    6- Lee 90405 LEE REAL bullet and ball mold .45 muzzleloader new

    7- Lee 45 200R Lee REAL bullet and ball mold .45 Muzzleloader as above but used

    8- Lee .58 cal REAL bullet mold

    9- Lee 90475 .58 Improved mini with a hollow base plus .574 and 440 grain

    10- Lyman 225 415G 439 22 cal mold

    11- Lyman 40143 869 looks to be a 38 or 40 cal pistol mold 175 grain.

    12- Lee 429 214 SWC another pistol mold

    Then there are a whole range of .45 cal ball molds of slightly different diameters for different patch thickness and barrel bore diameters.

    13- Lee 90 459 ball mold single

    14- Lee 90 455 ball mold single

    15- Lee 90 449 ball mold single

    16- Lee 90 435 ball mold single

    17- Lee 90 442 ball mold double

    18- Lee 90 440 ball mold double

    The molds I'm looking to swap anything for are any rifle or muzzleloader style .25, .30, .32, .375 / 38, .457 450 grain, .50

    I know a few guys were keen on some of these.
    If what you were looking at isn't listed that's because I wanted it also.
    But I'm happy to loan out locally

    If there is something you are interested in please quote the listing number I have given it.
    This could get confusing otherwise

    I would be very keen on:

    12- Lee 429 214 SWC another pistol mold

    I'll have a look what I have that I could swap. Don't have many though
    Identify your target beyond all doubt

    Will swap for $
    But just thought it was a way of dredging up something interesting

    I will go through the moulds a little more carefully but be curious what ones you would think would be best suited for

    I appreciate & respect differing views, I greatly value the benefit of good conversation around differing opinions & respect points of view contrary to my own, however when you’re a belligerent self-opinionated obnoxious troll like individual, +1 to the ignore list

    Well there was a big .457 I will keep for myself.
    Hopefully it's a 450 grain mold.
    I already had a 405 grain
    So when I mold some you are welcome to try some.
