    If you have a dummy cartridge, you should be able to adjust for the other load in a couple of minutes' I use 38 dies for 38, 357 Mag and 357 Max. Even If you don't have a dummy round, If you have loading notes it only takes a few more seconds.

    Water Dog was a good one. One of our labs would dive under the water, catch a fish, and bring it to us. Lost her about 4 months ago.

    I have about 3 1/2 pounds of bullseye, and 3.9 pounds of unique left in 4 pound kegs that I bought in the mid 60's. I used some of the bullseye to load some 38 sp shotshells a few months ago.

    In my younger years I was a grain inspector. Sometimes the extra grain from sampling would disappear. I had a still. I made sour mash from corn and vodka from wheat. I have never made beer, but have drunk a bunch that friends made. It is better than...

    I started reloading 12 ga in the mid 60's. Then started shooting pistols. Thought it would save a lot of money to cast. I read the lyman manual, and started. I have learned a lot from this forum. I have met many reloaders, but still only one other...

    One other problem you can have that is solved by the M die or NOE insert is the case swaging down a soft lead boolit. The standard expander will expand the case to .002 smaller than the standard jacketed bullet, or .353. You are forcing a .360...

    1965 I started 12 ga with a Texan loader. A few months later I started 38 sp and 357 mag. As I got new calibers I reloaded all of them.For many I have never purchased a single commercial cartridge.

    I don't know about the cowboy die, but the M die will. NOE also has an insert for the Lee universal flare die that will also work. It is the cheapest if you have the flare die, or will load more than one caliber with cast.

    I use the Lee 358-125-RF sized .357 for my 9's and .359 for my 38/357's. I PC some and Hi-Tek (original swamp green, and some red copper) others. Both shoot great, and no leading in any of my guns. I am using Herco powder for most of my loads.

    It is the way I do it. I add the tin, superhard, copper, etc. to make the alloy I want. If it is for pistols, I try to make at least 150 pounds at a time. I use a marker to label all the ingots.
