Looking for a .315 Ball mold would like complete mold with handles
I have been looking for over a year, and could find one. Pedersoli has a single cavity mold, but it is not in stock anywhere I can find. It must be ordered from Italy.
I just commissioned a gang mold for .315 round balls, and expect it next week. If it turns out to be a good mold, I will list the particulars here. It cost $100.
Tanner can make any size mold you want($35) and Track sells the handles($15)., but the gang mold might be a better way to go. Tanner doesn't have a sprue cutter. Not a big deal for the bigger sizes, but it could be a pain on the smaller ones.
IIRC, Jeff Tanner passed away.
He did but his son is still making molds.
Appreciate the info guys. Bigfoot let me know how it turns out I am definitely interested.
I just received my .315 round ball gang mold today. It looks good, feels solid. I will try to cast in a couple of days and will share the results. Stand by.
The mold required extensive warm-up, and still only produced 50% filled out cavities. After my initial casting trial, this mold is producing .305-310 round balls; not what I needed or expected.
I have contacted the maker and will let you know the result. I have not named the maker here; if the issues are resolved positively, I will share his contact information.
The old T/C molds for their .32’s were .315. They do turn up on eBay from time to time. That’s where I got this one.
Still looking? I think I have one, not sure about the handles though. May have a maxi ball mold too. chuck
I also have handles, (just looked) the mold does not say .315, just 32 cal. pretty sure is a Thompson center mold from years ago. the balls I have in a drawer with the mold measure .315. I also found the .32 maxi ball mold. Both in very good condition.
If you find 2, I would like one.
I know one person who I will check with next week. He has a lot of old inventory.
If you cannot find one here, you might see who is going to Friendship in June and have them get you one.
