Lee Precision Mold 6 Cavity 358-140-SWC

Six Cavity Commercial Quality Molds

Made for heavy duty volume production, this Lee Precision Six Cavity Bullet Mold produces .358 diameter, 140 grain, SemiWad Cutter nose bullets suitable for .38 Special, .38 S&W, .38 Colt New Police, .357 Magnum and similar cartridges. This mold, like all Lee Precision molds, is made from aluminum and so is completely rust resistant, lighter, and heats up and cools down faster than other brands made from iron or steel. As a result, this Lee mold is easier to use, causes less operator fatigue during casting and can produce more consistent bullets than other molds made from iron or steel. Lee's 6 cavity mold blocks are machined from aluminum and assembled with steel bushings and alignment pins for lasting precision. All Lee Precision Mold Blocks are made from aluminum because of the exceptional molding qualities. Lee molds feature trochoidal venting on the mold face and sprue plate mating surface.This unique venting allows consisstent and effortless fill out. The mold cavities are CNC machined for unmatched roundness and size control. Most bullets from Lee molds can be used as cast without sizing.

A sprue plate is included but Handles are sold separately. The bullet weight specified is based on using Lee's suggested alloy, your results may vary depending on the actual alloy used.


Includes:

  • (2) aluminum Mold Block halves (mold handles NOT included)
  • Hard anodized Sprue Plate with handle

FEATURES:

  • Produces bullets that fit 38 Special, 38 S&W, 38 Colt New Police, 357 Magnum and similar sized cartridges.
  • Bullet diameter: .358 inches
  • Bullet weight: 140 grains (with Lee's suggested alloy)
  • Bullet overall length: .643 inches
  • Distance from nose to first lube groove: .295 inches
  • Bullet shape: SemiWad Cutter

  • 6 bullets are produced with each casting.
  • Mold block halves are machined from aluminum.
  • Assembled with steel bushings and alignment pins for lasting precision.
  • Cam operated sprue plate to eliminate the pounding common to ordinary molds.
  • A tangential cutoff helps reduce the nip at cutoff.

NOTES:

Lead Information:

  • The following lead information is from the Lee Precision Modern Reloading 2nd Edition Book, Pages 119 & 120.
  • For best results, bullet strength must be matched to breech pressure.
  • Black Powder guns require Pure Lead.
  • Target handgun loads should use Lead with 1% Tin. Tin makes bullet alloy more castable & harder.
  • Lead with some wheel weights used for high pressure handguns.
  • Use Wheel Weights for very light rifle loads.
  • High Pressure Rifle loads use Linotype.
  • Beware of Zinc! One part Zinc in 10,000 parts of Lead Alloy will ruin it's castability.

WARNING: Melting lead and casting lead objects will expose you and others in the area to lead which is known to cause birth defects, other reproductive harm and cancer.

USE STRONG VENTILATION

Lead contamination in the air, dust and on your skin is invisible. Keep Children and pregnant women away during use and until clean-up is complete. Risk can be reduced, BUT NOT eliminated , with strong ventilation. Washing hands immediately after use of these products before eating or smoking. Careful cleaning of surfaces and floors with disposable wipes, after lead dust has settled. Use lead-specific cleaner with EDTA or high phosphate detergent (such as dishwasher detergent). Bag wipes for disposal.

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF YOUR LOADS

FACTORS THAT WILL INCREASE PRESSURES. SOME WILL BE DANGEROUS:

  • DO NOT USE more powder than recommended
  • DO NOT USE a heavier bullet than recommended
  • DO NOT SEAT the bullet deeper than normal
  • DO NOT USE magnum primers unless using a slow burning ball powder
  • Greatly oversize bullets, excessively hard bullets or cases that are too long will cause higher pressures
  • High temperatures or cartridges that were stored in a hot car or trunk will produce higher pressures
