    I called Lyman yesterday and yes, plugs are available but you have to call customer service (I ordered a .310 plug myself). There is limited availability though and I wanted a .359 but that one unfortunately is not made anymore. I need to pick up...

    Catch, I concur with Beagle. I too have a couple of Lyman 45's that do most of my sizing but also a couple of 450's (w/heaters) and even a pitzer. The RCBS is a great tool too but it's a lot easier to find inexpensive 450's on the used market. ...

    I have almost chucked my RCBS swager tool for the exact same reason. I'm coming into a bunch of LC .30-06 cases soon and can't wait to try this. Thanks for the tip!!!

    My thoughts exactly....paying the rising cost to pay the minimum wage will be my tip (well, if I ever went to one of those places). Semper FI!

    Not really a help to the exact question but as a point of interest..... A couple of years ago, during a load development for a planned pig hunt with my 336, I was testing (velocity and accuracy) various powders with the Sierra 200gr RN. My notes...

    Another vote for the Lyman 358156. That's my only .357 mold and the only one I think I'll ever need. This over a suitable charge of H110 or 2400 does anything I want it too - paper, hunting, or carry. Semper Fi
