    I like that ER32 collet set up. I have a whole set of ER32s I use on the wood lathe for making duck calls. I have been using 5C collets with a collet closer on the mill. I ream nylon emergency collets to hold jackets for trimming. Will need some...

    1browski: Go back to post #7 in this thread. Click on the link there. The site doesn't have much on it yet. There are 3 bars in the upper right corner. Click on that and a small drop down menu will give you a few choices, one of which is...

    I too started jacket trimming with a 35 cal pinch trim die and was never happy with the mouth of the jacket so I made a set up using a 1/2 in carbide end mill on the milling machine. I have been trimming some long 25 cal jacket derived from 1.15...

    I'm going to find out how Richards new system works. I emailed him yesterday to inquire if an item was in stock and emailed back today saying it was. I said I wanted it and would he please send payment info since I have only used his old website in...

    I spent time today drawing Sierra 30 cal jackets to 256 and trimming them to one inch. I'm trying to make a 100 gr bullet that will stabilize in my 14 inch twist Savage model 20. I have a 2S and a 6S point form. I made a few 103 gr 2S bullets. A lot...

    As soon as I said 358 Walnut Hill rifle die sets are hard to find, Richard puts a 4S set up on eBay. I would watch eBay. This is the second set I have seen in as many weeks. At least I am assuming its Richard cuz its located in Phoenix, OR. I...

    358 die sets for rifle bullets are very hard to find. I was lucky enough to find a good used set a few years ago to feed the 35 Whelen. Bob

    I do this all the time for 45 ACP. Using the "ultimate cannalure tool I knurl the bearing surface and lube with LLA or 45-45-10. There are some pics on one of the "ultimate cannalure " threads. I'll see if I can find it. I uploaded pics of Kevin's...

    I'm sure he will do custom punches because it requires almost no labor. He probably does as I do. I made up a couple dozen blank punches for Walnut Hill, "S" dies, and "H" dies. Then I just have to take a few minutes to turn down the tip to the...

    It appears Richard's old website is gone for good and is replaced by the one we see now. In it he says he will be slowing down and will no longer be doing custom orders. He makes dies for stock and you must email him to see what is available. He...
