My big bullet mold auction buy came today!

Hello all,
I picked up all of these up at auction in one group. NEI 451-255, Saeco 017 350 FPGC, LBT 452-350-WLN-GC, LBT 452-360-WFN-GC, LBT 452-310-OWC-GC, LBT 452-x.920-WLN-GC, LBT 280-WFN-GC, LBT 451-x835-WLN-GC and the Lyman 452-423. Some of the nose profiles are confusing on what they were designed for. If anyone has used some of the odd one's please give me some advice. Thanks in advance. Boats

Is the LBT-280-WFN-GC a .44 mag bullet or are they all .452s?
Either way, you're gonna love casting with LBT moulds.
I've got a few and they are great and all of mine are very accurate!

The OWC is Veral's version of a wad cutter.
He believed his wad cutters should have a small amount of ogive that gives one caliber of bearing surface, so they will not lose accuracy at longer ranges and will have a nose outside the case for more powder capacity.
I've got a LBT-358-150-OWC.
It is very accurate at high velocity (.357 Mag velocities), longer ranges and hits hard.
An excerpt from his book "Jacketed Performance With Cast Bullets":
