OK, now that I have my Baby Dragoon in .31 cal, I need to get a mould for it. I measured the chambers at .320. Does anyone have a particular mould make or size they would recommend for this gun?
Most of what I've read indicated .321 is "standard" but I can't located any RB moulds in this size. I have handles for Lyman mould blocks and the rest are Lees, which come with handles. Open to suggestions....

"0 buck" shot measures .32.

That product has been discontinued by Hornady but some outfit should still have some in stock. I believe that Kwhi43 recently called Hornady and bought his direct from what they had left in stock.

Here's where kwhi43 recently posted about obtaining a lifetime supply of 0 Buck direct from Hornady and how uniform they are in weight.
Good luck. :)

Thanks for the info. As much as I love this little booger, I doubt I will put a lot of rounds through it with 4 other "manly-sized" C&B pistols around, so a hundred RBs will probably last me 10 years. I just hate not having a mould in case I can't buy RBs.

If you are like me you will shoot it a lot more than you think you will now.

Could be...it's growin' on me in leaps & bounds already.
It's cute!
Compared to Big Daddy Dragoon, that is!

It may be crude but you can re-size a round ball by drilling a hole and finish it to the size you want in a piece of 1/4 inch steel and pound a ball through it. What you wind up with is an elongated "conical" bullet the size you want.
I did this to resize some .457 balls into .440 bullets to test my new .45 rifle while I waited for the proper mold to show up.
