    Left Handed Mold

    Does anyone make a left handed bullet mold that cast a bullet similar to Lyman old style minnies? A friend who just joined has trouble using my mold because it is designed for a right handed person. TIA

    No Big Deal......Just make a Left Handed Sprue Plate and install it on the other side of the mould blocks.

    I am waiting for someone to make a mould that produces bullets that never miss!

    After the lead cools in the mold just turn it upside down and the sprue plate will be on the bottom with the extension on the left side.

    Ditto Jim...

    I'm a southpaw but have been casting my whole life as a righty.

    Don't overthink the problem, just use what you got.

    John Bly has the answer

    John Bly has the answer.

    I picked up a mold from someone where the mold to me was upside down and it was hard for this RIGHTY to use it.

    I turned it over and it worked fine.

    Seems the easiest way to do it to me...
