    Check with Lodgewood; they usually have used moulds for sale. But they also sell a double-cavity aluminum custom Lee mould for a 350-grain .50-cal Smith-Maynard bullet that looks a awlful lot like the now obsolete Lyman 515139.

    PS. The mould comes in a Lee mould box so must be a Lee mould, and is a .518 diameter, so it is just slightly larger in diameter than the 340-grain 515139 and 425-grain 515141, and is a wee tad longer than the 515139. Indeed, the design is such that a bullet cast from the 515139 fits neatly inside the .518 mould. Midsouth didn't list the 515139 in their 2010 catalog though they did include the 515141, and takes the #191 top punch just as Lyman recommends for the 515139. If you are interested in a heavier bullet, Larry Romano sells a .519, 395-grain bullet with a single grease groove, much like the CW period Smith bullet, except being flat-nosed. It's much longer than the 515141 at about 3/4" OAL. It's also a little more pricey at about $152 (with no handles), and is the same bullet recommended for the .50 Maynard and .56-50 Spencer.

    Lodgewood's mold even comes with hanldes and I think the price was only $45 bucks for the two cavity mold.

    Their number is 262-473-5444

    What they sell is a LEE mould correct?

    They're not obsolete: Lyman is still making them. Midsouth has them, check link below.

    Bill has his mold made by Lee. It's not one you pick out of their catalog.
