    If anyone can help me identify these bullet moulds, I would appreciate it.

    Ideal stamped 875; 358; 242 Single cavity
    Ideal stamped 358; 495; 049 Single
    Ideal stamped 358; 439; 285 Single
    Lyman stamped 52389; 788 2 cavity
    Lyman stamped 357; 446; 64 2 cavity

    If you know of a reliable resource to aid me in identification, please let me know that as well.

    May be something like this:

    875; 358; 242 should be 38/357 in 92 or 121 gr. round nose.

    358; 495; 049 should be 38/357 in 141 gr. wadcutter.

    358; 439; 285 Are you sure this is not actually 358 429?

    52389; 788 should be 45 cal (handgun) 185 gr RN

    357; 446; 64 should be for 38/357 and 162 gr. swc.

    Best way to be sure is cast 'em, mic 'em, weigh 'em. Or you can write to Lyman. They know the Ideal moulds too. The Lyman Cast Bullet Handbook is the reference you need.
