Ok all you mold collectors and users: I have 2 molds made by some body named Hall. The molds cast the 2 halves of a 2-piece bullet used in a muzzleloading bench rifle. I have the rifle too. They are brass and a single piece cylinders with extraction rods and inserts for the male-female smash together swaging to make a bullet.Clear as mud?

Any way, any body know of a mold maker named Hall. These are old and just about worn out. They also suffer from rough use.

Also, any body know of a mold maker that would make a new set of molds, strictly a custom thing. I need to keep this rifle shooting, it is very accurate, weighs 36 lbs, and draws a crowd every time I drag it out.

Search for Feilding B. Hall, mould maker and reloading tool maker in the 1930's.

When I used a press like that, I make a hardened steel height gauge and brought the ram down with the die and gauge both under the ram. You can make bullets within a couple of thou's in length that way.

Not having much luck on google, is there a book I should look up? The rifle might be from the 30's also

If you can search the Antique Reloading Tool Collectors Association web site, there is some info on him. He is not listed in any book that I know about. Like many guys in the depression, trying to make some money on his machining skills.
