Lyman Rifle Bullet Moulds

Lyman bullet moulds are the standard by which all other moulds are judged, regardless of price. Our standard offering of proven, popular designs are the widest available. The designs picture gas checks where appropriate. Bullet weights listed are nominal and may well vary from bullets dropped from a given mould. Variations between listed nominal weights and actual as-cast weights have absolutely no effect on accuracy. The bullet illustrations are artist renderings. They are for general reference only and are not intended to be precise representation.
