You might also keep an eye out for the Lyman hand tools with mold blocks. These tools were equipped to cst a heeled bullet. Mine casts a bullet of around 87 grains. They're usually pretty reasonable, often less than a mold alone. Mine was $16 on Ebay.

MM93, does yours cast a flatnose bullet? My mold has a round nose and even after I trimmed the cases to size they don't want to feed from the magazine :? But on the other hand this little rifle has really surprised me :D The inside of the barrel is good but it still has some small pits,but they don't seem to hurt accuracy at all 8) Heck,if I ever find one of those 80gr molds I might see if I can sneak up within about 40 yards of a woodchuck 8) Also just might have to get another 1892 in 32 ,I'm afraid at this rate I may wear the barrel out on this one :)

Yes, mine casts a round nose bullet, and it feeds fine in all my Marlins. I really shouldn't say it feeds fine in all, as one is a Ballard single shot rifle, so there's no feeding involved!

No success looking for the other two molds, have looked everywhere suggested. And quite a few other places with no luck :!: Guesse this might take awhile :!:

I looked onEbay for over a year, before finding my Ideal hand tool, with mold in .32 Long. Within a couple months I saw another, and emailed a friend so he could buy it. Go figure.

I have one mold and that should be enough :!: But I would like a heavier bullet mold and a lighter mold :D :!:
