I have a single cavity mold marked Lyman and 511484 which I have not been able to find any information on.  the mold seems to be a recut mold. The mold numbers are crossed out and resampled 511 484.  The cavity looks like a black powder mold style with deep grooves, Loverin style.  Anyone know of a mold of this number?

You are correct! It is a recut mould of .511" and weighs 454 grains of unknown alloy. You find these a lot around the black powder shooter events as there are not many designs for the 50/70 and 50/90. p.s. this is sized for modern barrels, not the old originals.

Thanks, Rick,  I was not getting the nomenclature, thinking it was a Lyman design.  I see it is diameter and weight, which makes sense.
