Still can't find anyone selling new molds (looking for lyman .490 round ball double, 54 plains bullet)  looks like there is a mold shortage, When do think they'l catch up

Try Ebay. I have found lots of nice used Lyman round ball mold blocks there. Lyman has discontinued many of the round ball sizes but they show up pretty regularly there.

I was going to suggest the Log Cabin Shop, as they usually have a good supply of molds, but they had this to say on their website. 

2021 - DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND THIS YEAR MANY LEE & LYMAN BULLET MOLDS ARE OUT OF STOCK. WE HAVE SEVERAL ORDERS IN TO BOTH MANUFACTURERS BUT WAIT TIMES ARE LONG. THE WEBSITE DOES NOT REFLECT THE QUANTITIES ON HAND. PLEASE CONTACT US TO CHECK CURRENT STOCK.

Does anyone know if Moose Moulds is still in business. Sent them an email several weeks ago regarding ball moulds, and have gotten no response.

Thanks.

I'm glad. I have a DC Lee .495 mould I could part with (keeping the Lyman DC .495) but the shipping alone from here, would be almost the cost of a new one (Lee).

MOST of the molds listed on Ebay do  NOT tell the caliber and that is no way to sell anything.
