Lee 452-200-RF bullets for sale?




Hi,
Re. my prev. post. It occurs to me that somebody must produce this bullet commercially and I could buy some to test in my 1911. Anybody know of a bullet maker casting this bullet?
Thanks,
C.

I doubt that you will find a commercial caster using a Lee aluminum mold. If you could find an idividual using that mold might be your best bet.

I may be wrong, but I have never seen Lee molds used on Magma casting machines.

When I lived in Orange County a friend in Fullerton had a Magma. So I have a little experience helping him. I think it was RCBS mold blocks that he converted for the Magma. It took Eight double cavity blocks to run the machine.

I must ask what are You wanting the Lee? is it that you want it for 6 cavity's? Or is it a 2 cavity and you want it for price?
I like Iron moulds best and have a few brass ones
I am not made of money but do know that good moulds last a life time.
I am not pushing you not to get it just asking?

You will be hard to find anyone who casts commerically with that aluminum molds, let alone that mold. That bullet design is an oddball and aluminum molds aren't as durable for mass production as steel molds are.

Unfortunately I don't think I have any left at the moment, I'll check when I get home.
