Hi,

Can anyone tell me about a L.L. Parker mold that is marked 451 with a 2 underneath? See pictures at end of posting.

It looks like a paper-patched bullet but for what, a Volunteer Rifle or a .45-70 or some other caliber inbetween?

Any info about this mold and the maker would be greatly appreciated.

Another mold not pictured is a L.L. Parker mold marked 451 with a 1 underneath. It is a straight cylinder diameter with a hollow base pin. Any info about that mold would be appreciated as well.

Thanks,
helenajoe

I can't tell you about L.L. Parker but that mold is for a paper patch bullet and would be suitable for a Volunteer rifle or any of the other target type muzzle loaders in 45 caliber if put through a sizer of the correct size. It may be just about right as is for a 45/70 after the thickness of the paper patching is added to the cast diameter.

If you want to sell it, you need look no further.
