    I had posted an ebay link to it, figured it was Ok since the auction had clearly ended and I already had the item, but I guess not. I'll try to get a picture of it back up without using the ebay link.

    Just so happens I have a couple of them, but they're in pretty poor shape. Gonna need to take the time to soak everything and clean them up to see whether I want to mess with them or not.

    OK, I see. I got it needing an over size 8mm die. I slipped it in the 450 and managed to size a few with it, obviously it's not gonna lube them. I was thinking a guy could turn that flange off somehow and it would work in the 450. Gotta check...

    OK, I always thought the 45s used the same dies. I was wondering if this is a Herters?

    does this die go to? There's a flange on it that keeps it from really working on a Lyman, but otherwise, it seems dimensionally correct.

    Nice! Not sure why, but I've had the itch to get an Arisaka for a while now. I don't want a serious collector, just a shooter, but I would like it original.

    I got bored Sunday and the weather sucked, so I made some 8x57 cases out of old GI .30-06 brass. It was easier than I thought and since I haven't managed to scrounge any brass yet, it'll do. I got a .328 die for my Lyman 450 in the mail today. ...

    The problem is the same part on them is what breaks on all of them. I know I have one out there with the thumb lever busted, but that's probably the part you need. I'll look around for it when I get a minute, it's yours if you can use it when I...

    If you have a big bore that hurts, try stuffing it with trailboss. Lots more fun then. But.......back to your question, you could look at maybe a 50-140. I decided a few years ago that if my 9.3x74 was not sufficient, I would pull out the 450/400...

    For me Mike, I have to limit my recoil due to some neck surgery I had a few years back. downloading that JDJ cartridge to recoil levels I can handle really isn't worth going past the 357-44B&D levels in a light single-shot gun. Bruce

    I could have sworn someone on this site had been working on a 30 caliber wildcat built of a 357 Magnum case that they were calling a Bobcat. If you run a 300BLK sizer die over a 357 Magnum case you probably would come up with a nice looking...
