Lee Precision Mold Single Cavity 459-405HB
Made for heavy duty volume production, this Lee Precision Single Cavity Hollow Base Bullet Mold produces .459 diameter, 405 grain, round nose bullets suitable for 45-70 Government Caliber Rifle and similar cartridges. This mold, like all Lee Precision molds, is made from aluminum and so is completely rust resistant, lighter, and heats up and cools down faster than other brands made from iron or steel. As a result, this Lee mold is easier to use, causes less operator fatigue during casting and can produce more consistent bullets than other molds made from iron or steel. Lee's 6 cavity mold blocks are machined from aluminum and assembled with steel bushings and alignment pins for lasting precision.
The bullet weight specified is based on using Lee's suggested alloy, your results may vary depending on the actual alloy used.

- For best results, bullet strength must be matched to breech pressure.
- Black Powder guns require Pure Lead.

- Use Wheel Weights for very light rifle loads.
- High Pressure Rifle loads use Linotype.

- DO NOT USE magnum primers unless using a slow burning ball powder
- Greatly oversize bullets, excessively hard bullets or cases that are too long will cause higher pressures
- High temperatures or cartridges that were stored in a hot car or trunk will produce higher pressures
