CS Richmond Bullet Mold

Post by VenisonRX » Wed Sep 11, 2019 12:45 pm

Anyone use the Eras Gone bullet mold that copies the original .54cal CS Richmond bullet profile? Got a Shiloh 63 carbine and was looking to try it. Curious if anyone here has any experiences with it yet.

I have 2 molds from Eras Gone .36 and .44 conical for the revolvers. They are aluminum from Lee Precision and the cavities are cut very nice. I soot them with a wooden match and they drop very nice bullets. I can not see any reason why these would not shoot very well. Let us know how they work out.

I went ahead and ordered a set. I’ll post my results once I can cast some up and shoot them.
