Before I buy new I thought I would check here first.
Im looking for a mold for my .44 mag in a Keith style bullet or a Wide flat nose. Not looking for a top of the line mold as it will probably only be used for about 500 bullets a year. 240-260 grain.
Let me know if anyone has one laying around.

Pretty sure I have a Lyman 429421 that I don't need. I have not found .429-.430 bullets to produce satisfactory results re: leading in .44 guns. Let me know if you're still interested and I will dig it out.

Ok, what I have is an extra RCBS double cavity mold that throws a bullet identical to the Lyman/Ideal number 429244 - the Ray Thompson design gas check bullet. It will weigh between 240-250 grains depending on your alloy. Mold only, no handles. Very good condition. I have this same mold in hollow point form and it's my favorite .44 bullet of all. Let me know if you have interest.
EBay is a great place to look for/buy bullet molds. You can probably get what you're looking for in a Lee mold there for less that $50. Sending you a PM re this.
