Default Old House - Clean Up Find!

A good friend of mine and his dad are moving out of Kalifornistan and moving to Nevada. While helping them move i found two bins full of original early 1900 Winchester bullet molds.

To my surprise my buddy told me, "Any doubles in there, take em! I don't need two"

So i came home with 6 original molds in 32-20, 44-40, 45-Gov(70), 40-65, 40-82, and 45-60.

What to think of that find TRAPP55 and BIGBOSSMAN??

Awesome find -

I have been looking for original single, double and gang molds for my collection.

Those are some nice older models, time to melt down some old pipes.

Nice find with the handles intact! I can see something at the top of that pic that caught my interest. What else did you find?

What, no 25-20?

Pretty cool items to have. I don't cast bullets, I pay to have other people do it for me. But still..... if those fell into my hands I'd be thinking about it!

I wouldn't get too excited myself.
Bullets cast from old obsolete molds will just bounce off cardboard targets at 50 yards.
What you need are the modern day bullet molds that include words such as 'Magnum' on the side and are imported from countries such as China.

Well the attraction to me really is not to use them so much. They are just cool to have and display.

They would look great all displayed on the wall. And they do have a fairly significant monetary value also.

I have only one gun that matches one of the bullet molds. They are more for collecting. I would try to use them once i get my reloading station set up in my shop.

I do plan to display them in a case that i have full of Winchester memorabilia.

Those are extremely cool. We have some old tools out as decoration in our house and I'm working on getting the lady Ok with some antique firearms around. Love the patina on stuff like that.

Those bullet molds are totally cool. I was just teasing. Price was sure right. Those molds would sure complement a rifle in the same caliber.

The molds are a last ditch effort for the excuses needed to buy matching guns. Baby on the way, he knows the gun fund is doomed.
Manny, Congrats to you and the better half!

Thanks Dave! She'll be here any day...

Yes, I know the gun fund will disappear. My last purchase is to match the 45-60 mold. I've got a decent chunk down on a "special" model 76.
