    I use an RCBS die. I've moved to the hot glue method for just about everything if the current seat plug does not fit. I used to make my own to fit all sorts of bullets, but the hot glue method is so much easier (easier than a CNC machine) I've just...

    BOY HOWDY !!! That 6.0grs of Unique in a .38Spl case, under a 168gr SWC is definitely a .38/44 or a +P+ load.

    At a Gun Show a few years back I bought an MTM 100 rd box for 44Mag/45Colt, just for the color - Tan. It had 100 R-P .41Mag cases in it. I haven't had a .41Mag in 30yrs. And I have a fair number of 2cav & 4cav Lyman/Ideal molds for the same...

    I have the N.O.E. mold in a 5cav aluminum. The bullets that leap out when the mold is opened are things of Great Beauty. Shoot good too.

    No Thanks. I shoot the #452423 in mine over 4.2gr Bullseye in mine. Drops at 246grs from My Lyman mold. N.O.E. drops 255gr, use 4.0grs for it. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    I won't use them. I use a light Taper Crimp on .32ACP, 9MM, 40S&W and .45ACP. All other handgun get a roll crimp . All crimping is done is done separately from seating. I use a roll crimp on .38-40, .44-40 & .45Colt when using the old style...

    Insult me if you will. My experience of Lee dies will not change. Lee is a INEXPENSIVE way to start. I've even bought a Lee die set in the past. A set for .32S&W, they were a mix of .32ACP & .32S&W Long. They were too long to crimp a bullet into...
