RCBS mould ID help....

I have both the LYMAN 125 Truncated Cone(TC) mold, and the RCBS 124 CN mold. I have a bunch of both cast up, sized, and lubed; just put away and ready to load. The RCBS is just a shorter truncated cone than the LYMAN design, but just what in the sam hill does CN stand for. "N" is nose, but I'm having a brainfart on the "C" part. Just wanting to put ID tags on all my little storage boxes.

The Lyman conical was the first bullets I ever cast (in the middle (60's). It worked well in my WWII P38, but I found that they were hard to keep from dropping from my fingers with that darned conical nose shape.
