Lee 2-Cavity Bullet Molds are a great choice for reloaders looking for a quality mold at an affordable price. Lee machines their mold blocks from aluminum making them rust resistant. Aluminum molds heat up and cool down faster than iron or steel molds and good bullets can usually be produced only after a few casts. In addition, aluminum blocks are one-third the weight of iron or steel mold blocks offering the bullet caster less fatigue during extended casting sessions. To ensure the best possible bullets, mold block halves are CNC machined for unmatched roundness and size control. Weights given are Lee’s weights with suggested alloy; actual weight may vary due to the alloy mixture used. This mold will cast one R.E.A.L. bullet and one round ball bullet. R.E.A.L. bullets load easily even in a dirty barrel because of their unique cleaning action. They will not tumble in flight which makes them a perfect hunting bullet with heavy loads. R.E.A.L. bullets also shoot accurately even in greatly oversized barrels.
- Large driving bands easily stabilize bullet, while their thin size makes them easily engraveable by the rifling.
- Centers automatically when seating; easily stabilized with light loads and accurate with maximum loads.
A note from Lee Precision on their bullet molds:
Lee Precision does not recommend the use of any spray type mold release products in their bullet molds. The use of such products may result in a build-up of the release product in the bullet mold cavity, reducing the diameter of the bullets cast from the treated mold. Instead, Lee Precision recommends smoking the mold with a wooden match, beeswax candle or a butane lighter as described in their provided bullet mold instructions.

This is the perfect mold for beginning muzzleloading casters. It is inexpensive, casts two versatile projectiles, and is fairly sturdy for an aluminum mold. If it is lubed, smoked, and not allowed to get too hot, it will cast fine bullets. The REAL bullets are easy to cast, with no small lube grooves to cause bullet sticking. There is no visible mold line on cast projectiles if you keep the mold clean.Be careful not to scorch the handles (they are short) and to keep the mold cool, or the pins will come out (they can be restaked into place).
