    Well rolled the dice on a old H&G mold. Needs some work on the handles and a little rust removal but other than that not bad for a hundred

    Love these big old molds. They cast as fast as you can.

    Is that a 9mm mold? Cavities don't look pitted which is a plus. Years ago I got a 6C H&G mold in 365gr .458cal for cheap. It was rusty and the cavities were pitted. I cleaned it up and it still throws a nice 45-70 plinking round.

    0000 steel wool, an electric drill, some oil and time....... the blocks will look good.

    Have you checked block-to-block and blocks-to-sprue plate alignments?

    It did clean up nice.
