Has anyone received a mould from Veral since he's been back in business? I'm getting ready to order one and would like to know if everything is as it was.

Grady,
Keep me posted on how this works out for you. I'd be ordering a 41 as well, but a bit heavier.

Thanks.

Good bullets

I got my first really good bullets yesterday- he recomends if you dip --I do --to pour it in the mould never actually touch dipper to mold -- so I am having to relearn -- and find a way that suits me and gives consistent results -- I have just past the 100 or so break in -- the few that I shot since begining have shot well at 40 yards under 2"-- the bullets look good and I figure that once I get my method down it will cast good bullets easily- I knew I do not like Lyman style gas checks and I still do not but I guess that they work. any thing else? Mine is a very well made mold

They also specifically state that they don't want to be called on the phone, like I did, in the catalog they send out.

One good thing about Veral being back, the prices of LBT moulds and tools it back to where us normal guys can afford them. I once saw a new LBT 2 cavity mould for 45 Colt go for over $300.00 on ebay. An LBT lead tester went for over $450.00!! Some people have too much money. ==Bob

I agree with you about the prices of LBT molds __ I tried to get a couple off of E-bay and the prices were way too high - -- being avaiable again will change that

What is the price of the new LBT catalog?

Also, does anybody know it copies of Veral Smith's book are still available? If so, what is the price of the book?

Thanks,

The catalog, it's really a flyer, is free. The book, hardness tester, etc is all available. Write them a letter and they'll send you their flyer.
