Belding & Mull #311168 bullet mould box


#1

I assume it is an old ammo shipping box. Anyone knows anything about the firm? C’mon, guys, you know everything.


#2

Can’t say what was in it. Belding & Mull manufactured tons of reloading and shooting equipment.

Good luck,

Jones

Is the company gone? I tried to find it online, no luck.

I believe Belding and Mull has been out of business for some time. They made absolutely the best, most precision powder measure perhaps ever produced, in my opinion. I used one for years, until it got damaged, and I wasn’t able to replace it. I don’t believe they ever made or marketed ammunition or components, unless it was simply as a jobber for other companies, but again, don’t even recall them doing that.

SKS,
Buffaloarms.com sells B&M powder measures, etc. New stock I believe?
Your box looks like it was for either for lead bullets or perhaps a bullet mold box, the first three numbers on the box being the bullet dia… Depends on the box measurements which you didn’t list.
Would you please contact me via PM
