    Does anyone know the email address of LEE in America?

    I have looked on their website and it seems you can only contact them through it which prevents me from attaching pictures.
    It also states they will only replace one item. I have three faulty ones but I'll settle for one good one!!!

    I have three new style ball moulds and all three are defective.

    I bought one in May 2020 off that auction site and the sprue cut off is too deep and it leaves a lip on the ball. There were no others available anywhere so managed with it.

    Kranks got a new stock of them in so I sent for one in January of this year.. The two halves do not line up and the sprue does not cut off flush with the ball. I sent a sample of the cast balls to Kranks and they sent me another mould. That one is defective as well
    It is not as bad as the second one I bought but it is not really up the the usual standard of LEE moulds.

    So now I have got three .390" balls moulds and all of them are defective.

    The other option is to write to them if I cannot e-mail them.

    I could not find the email so I had to send a letter by air mail to them. I included pictures and invoices to show it was a genuine complaint.
    I have returned the moulds to Kranks, who will also take this up with LEE.
    Kranks have reimbursed me in full and I am grateful that they dealt with this problem so quickly.

    Ball 1 is the first mould I bought in 2020 off that site.

    The other pictures are of the new mould I bought from Henry Krank.

    If anyone has a an old style Lee 2 cavity .390" ball mould they would like to part with I would be interested.

    My, apologies I should have updated the thread.

    I wrote to LEE on the 18, March 2022 and I have not had a reply.
    In the meantime Kranks have reimbursed me for the mould and the postage.

    Thanks for posting.

    I wrote to Lee and sent pictures as well.
    I have not heard anything from them.

    So far I have had four defective moulds, two were returned to Krank's the other two I have to use.
    I will never buy another new style Lee mould.

    They're clearly having quality issues with rushing production to try and keep up with immense demand. I've got a few Lee moulds and only the ones from the last 2 years have issues. The cheap 2 cavity ones and even a damned expensive 6 cavity one i had shipped over from the US, all are worse than the older ones. I'm burnt at this point. I think in future I'll be spending the extra to get reliable moulds from another maker.
