Here's a description of a bullet from a site detailing all of the different Lyman bullets (molds). There are a few abbreviations I haven't figured out. PB is, of course, LEAD. I believe FN is Flat Nose. But I've never figured out what TP is. On other listings there's a number after the TP, often with a question mark.

Here's the site where this comes from: Lyman and Ideal Mold Descritions

538146. This bullet is for some of the old style rifles called .58 caliber, but is seldom seen in use at the present time. This bullet will fit the old .52 Spencer carbine. (PB, FN, 347, 435, 524 - TP is ?)

I Am enjoying this thread but being past my ” three score and ten” I am severely challenged in the modern day acronyms. My grandchildren text , I have to call them sometime for interpretation. Too many to remember. And beside that I can finish a conversation in half the time it takes to compose a text. Without acronyms or misspelled words and not having to deal with autocomplete or autocorrect.Dave

this acronym shorthand is generation CP (cell phone) …via quick thumbs on texting responses….adapt or be trampled.
That is the one that I posted and somehow shows as, What?! When I saw it, I thought maybe spell check had done its dirty deed, but when I went to edit it, it shows as I originally posted it, strange!!🤣
