ATTENTION MOLD BUYERS IN Alabama, Iowa, New Jersey, and Washington State!
My sales platform will be forced to collect sales tax for these four states. It looks like it will start around June 17th. I have no control over this, unfortunately. BONANZA will do this automatically on checkout, and the amount will vary with each state.
If you live in Alabama, Iowa, New Jersey, or Washington State and plan on ordering a mold, I suggest you do so in the next few days before this goes into effect. Other states may be affected later. I'm afraid this is the future for all on-line purchasing.

Eras Gone Bullet Molds was began for a simple reason. I wanted an authentic conical shaped bullet to shoot in my Civil War black powder revolvers. The only other option for the cap & ball shooter is round balls or modern conical designs.
Set up fees for custom molds are expensive. So, to get the single mold I required, I had to buy at least 30 from a prominent mold maker to make the project affordable. I figure I could keep one, give one to my buddy who did the mold design drawings and sell off the other twenty-eight. When I announced the idea on the Black Powder Revolver Enthusiast Facebook page, the response was overwhelming. Many folks were also looking for what I desired, and in many other original designs and calibers too. So, the idea of selling molds for 19th Century muzzle loading bullets was born. I chose the name of my history and archaeology blog, “Eras Gone” for a company name.
