Notice it has the indicator for elevation, 3 mount holes, and the target aperture.
It's not a 41 R sight, but the one for straight sided receivers.

Lyman # 45 REcvr sight

Got a #45 Lyman sight, anyone need one? It's the same as a FBI receiver sight with a flat base. Not for 8-81s.
About 80-90% finish, comes with target screw in disc aperture. Sorry, no mount screws. :cry:

I like this mould, but take a look at the #32-175T on this site. Pope style bands, tapered, not gas checked,(expensive) this configuration should provide excellent accuracy with a serious wallop when loaded to velocities that minimize bore leading.
Sadly Lee doesn't make any close to .320.
