    The OP was asking for pellet molds.  Lee does not offer them as far as I can tell.

    To the OP… Good luck!

    I don't know where you can get molds for pouring your own pellets.  Not only that, if you can find them, you may be stuck making pellets that don't work well in your air guns.

    A while back I looked into the possibility of making my own pellets and quickly dropped the idea because of the problems associated with making pellets.

    You might be able to make your own slugs, but then again, they may not work well out of your air guns.

    Sorry, I know I am not much, if any help.

    Again, Good Luck!

    Google pellet moulds.  I can't recall the name of the company making the molds, but they are available.

    There was a pellet mold topic just recently on new topics on the home page, check it out.

    When you get to the point of having to have dies for pellets you melt into it seems far fetched.

    You can easily buy .25, .22, .20 .177 pellets by mail to avoid having to work lead into molds for your rifle or pistol.

    Choose JSB Exacts ALL THE TIME to be sure.

    Get HN as well.

    Do NOT get Crossman Pellets as their dies for molding have changed and keep changing over time.

    I could not insert into my FWB Sport any new Crossman Premier 10.5 grainers.  The FWB has the tightest bore I've ever owned and the HW rifles (like my HW98s and HW80s and HW50s in .20) will NEVER accept a Crossman Pellet of any design because they INCREASED bore diameter and need a hammer to tap into the loading breech.

    I'd look into pellet swages instead. Molds are nice for big heavy bullets, but for a pellet a swage usually gives better quality, consistency, and accuracy.

    Depending on what you're willing to spend there are multiple options out there. I personally have the famous Corbin press, multiple NOE & MP moulds for casting, and I have GMI Swage presses also. I even have the Nomad pellet moulds. Making your own ammo makes the hobby more intimate to me. Good luck!

    Maybe you have better access to pellets than the OP.

    Yes actually I have all their caliber molds except 45. Yes the 22 works pretty good. I would suggest you slug your barrel first so that you can send them the correct sizes (OD of slug) you require.

    Good quality pellets are made thru many processes, just pouring and casting does not make for quality pellets.  Companies like JSB spend tens of thousands of dollars to make a complete tool that makes quality pellets and then they produce millions of pellets to pay for those tools.
