Howdy Fellers. I just wandered in from another site, and this sure seems like a friendly place. I just had my ol' Browning B-78 rebarreled with a Badger .38-55 tube to shoot BP silhouette with. I'm thinking of using the Lyman 335 gr. 378674 mold, anyone have any 'sperience with this one? Also, do ya think 2F or 3F will be better to start with in this case size? Looking forward to making some smoke, as soon as I mount tang sights on a tang-less rifle :lol:

First Shirt,
If you are shooting cast bullets and have not sluged your barrel you should do that before you try to work up any loads. When you know the grove dia. you should use a bullet at least .001 to .003 over the barrel dia.
When you get the load the rifle likes you will not find a more accurate rifle.

Lyman Moulds

I've owned quite a few Lyman moulds over the years. Without a doubt they are, in my opinion, the worst moulds made. The cut-off plate gouge the blocks and warp. Well worth avoiding.

Recently I've gotten several new SAECO four cavity moulds. One was for my 7.65 Argentine. Another for my Ballard 32-40. Both were EXCELLENT! They also have a bullet for the 38-55 which I'm undoubtedly going to order. All are tapered designs. Didn't know how I'd like that. Worked VERY well.
