    searching for 44-40 brass and bullet mold

    I have recently acquired a 44-40 Henry and I have been to the sutler sites looking for brass, primers and possibly a bullet mold. The only site that even lists them is S&S, and the majority of their items are out of stock. I have found a Lee mold, LEE90285, .429 Cal at 200 gr. it states that it's for a 44-40, will this work? Also, where can I find 44-40 brass for a Henry?
    Thanks in advance.

    For the primers try americanreloading.com they have large pistol primers @ 2000 for $199.99 & 5000 for $349.99 on sale.
    I signed up to get emails from them & the primers are on sale at least once a week.

    I would wonder if the Lee mold would carry enough lube. I bought a mold from NOE instead. I forgot which mold.

    44/40

    Ernie Rowles with Old West Bullet Molds sells the proper bullet mold as well as the precast bullets. Be careful of scammers on the brass. You`re not likely going to find brass in stock. It is virtually unobtainable through normal channels You`ll likely find some listed on Gunbroker at scalper prices. I have and shoot 3 44/40 rifles and have a goodly supply that I got years ago. I have a friend who is planning on attending the Nationals and will be happy to send you 100 or so. send me a private message for contact information and I`ll give you a phone number for me and we can talk price (reasonable). By the way I live in Gastonia, N.C. Wayne Spears aka Wormey

    I have some new 44/40 brass that I am willing to sell. Not sure how much or what I paid for it. Can bring to Nationals. Let me know if you are interested.
