Default Mold Needed

Do any of you guys have a Lee .440 round ball mold you're not using? I need one.

I don't know Van. But it won't be until May until I find out! If I do you can gladly have it. But you'll likely get one by then.

Does it have to be LEE? I may have a spare Lyman... I'll have to dig a bit to find out...

BPS/Bronko, I just found out my brother-in-law has a Lyman .440 mold. I'll be using that for now.

Our hunting season ends this coming weekend. So the first nice weather weekend we get in February and March I plan to have my first shooting session with the .45 Hatfield flintlock I acquired a few months back. The poor thing appears to be a virgin.

Assuming I keep the Hatfield, I'll be wanting a Lee mold for it sooner or later. I prefer the Lees because they cut the sprue flat against the ball and don't leave a little nub as do the Lymans.

I'm with you on that Semi...

Let me know if you still need one, I'll take inventory. The Lee molds do produce a better ball IMO... even though I may have both the Lee's get the thumbs up!

I agree. I like the Lees better.
