This old jewel, Ideal 358416, showed up on my doorstep a couple days ago. I'm looking forward to putting it to work at building some .38 Spl. & .357 Mag. black powder loads.


It is not real likely that you will get good bullets from the rusty cavities. I have no doubt you can get it out with Naval Jelly but the pits will spoil the surface of the bullets.

It was just very mild surface rust and wasn't pitted. It will be alright but thanks for your concern.
