    .515 or .518 or .520 Lyman uses?

    I found I have these 3 different sized Lyman moulds. What have been found best for an
    Original 50 cal Maynard ?, a Hoyt relined?
    Original Smith carbine / Massachusetts Arms Company made? American Machine Works made?
    or American Arms Company made? a Hoyt relined?
    .50 cal. Shiloh Sharps?

    I use a .520" bullet sized to .518" in both my original 2nd model Maynard carbine and my original Smith carbine. That diameter works well in both carbines.
