Lyman made the scope, and most of the accessories in the Lyman Centennial set. Dies, cleaning rod, etc. I think the only non gun item in the cased set they didn't make was the ammo, but even it has their name on it. Guess I'll have to retake this picture with the new camera!

Almost forgot! Yes, I have no self control, so I have fired the Ruger. Actually the previous owner said he also couldn't let it sit, and fired a box of ammo through it too.
It's a great shooter, and extremely accurate, but as neat as the Lyman scope looks, it's small diameter, and 4x magnification makes it somewhat less of a scope than your typical Lyman Targetspot, or Alaskan. Still it makes a nice package.

Nope, the mold casts a 500 grain flat point. I'll never use the mold, as I've got 4 molds for the .45-70 from 300-550 grainers. The mold in the set is a commemorative marked to match the set. I can hold off using it.
