Ordered on the 26th, shipped on the 30th, arrived today. Not too shabby. Comforting to know I can easily get a RB mould in whatever size I want. Mold cost (the brass part) was £36 or whatever it converts to in dollars. Figured I'd order the handles as well because I've been having a hell of a time finding things stateside. I think those were £20

It is a Tanner mold, Jeff Tanner makes them, I ordered an undersized .526 mold the other day to try a smaller ball in one of my very tight bore .54s, It arrived in a couple of weeks. I already had a .700 mold from Tanner for my fowler, and found them to be well made.

I'll take your word for it. I've never heard of Jeff Tanner....does he own BallMoulds or something?

That is correct. You can't go wrong. Even being across the pond service is surprisingly fast.
When I got the "we got your order" email, I noticed I missed the "did you account for shrinkage?" part, so I asked if I could change the mold size from .65 to .655 and I had what amounted to a "no problem" response within the hour.

This is off the Ball Molds website;

The business continues since Jeff passed away in October 2018, with James Tanner (Jeff’s son) now making the molds. James has been working with Jeff and Chris (in the background) for the last 15 years and has been involved with making molds throughout this period. We carry on, knowing how pleased Jeff was that the business was going to continue.

Sadly Jeff died a few years ago but his son still makes the great moulds to whatever size you need and Jeff's wife is still supplying pre-cut patches in different diameters and thicknesses and they both go under Ballmoulds.
