    Good Luck with Lyman. Three's years ago it took me two trys to get Lyman to make it right with two new undersized molds. Why I bought a N.O.E. 4cav mold. It was so nice I bought a N.O.E. version of the Lyman #452423, the bullets fairly Leap out...

    Walks replied to a thread Lee Mould Handles in Casting Equipment
    RCBS has made the same handles since they bought out Lachmiller/Ohaus. Lyman just changed over to the Saeco type. And as far as I know Lee handles fit all Lyman 2cav and RCBS. N.O.E., MP and Accurate too. So what is your question ?

    I hear about .44-40 cases getting crushed all the time. The other Cowboy Shooters at My old club complained about it all the time. I consider myself Very Very Fortunate to have a set of early Lyman All-American dies from the 1960's. The sizer...

    I too have a Nickel 27-2, it's a 5 inch. Bought it some 30yrs ago, a former Florida Highway Patrol Revolver. It came with a set of Pachmayr Grips though. It came with an action smooth as glass, 3lbs on single action, 11lbs on double action. I've...

    My Condolences on your loss. If you have a copy of the Reloading Die set instructions, read them carefully. That may help solve your problem. They may also be found on Lee's Website. I would concentrate on seating the New bullet to the...

    When I seat the last bullet in a batch, I empty the PM. Forgot to do it once on My first progressive, that TiteGroup is BAD JuJu.

    I started wearing one right off. I suffer from an allergies to house dust & tree pollen. Started wearing one doing yard work when we bought our first house. Wear one when casting too.

    Chamfer & deburr all cases BEFORE loading. That way there are no sharp edges to catch on Anything. Bullet depth looks good. Taper Crimp .472 is my way too. Do a "plunk test" on at least the first 5 out of each batch, I load in Batches of...

    JimKirk, that's a great idea. Back when I used one, it was simply a matter of a "light touch". Got to where I could trim to a repeatable one thousands off. For the last 32+ years it's been a Lyman electric or a Forster. Old RCBS is still...

    I use the old #429251, which I believe was the original bullet for the .44Spl. It's an old small block 1cav. I also have a old Lee 2cav that drops an almost identical bullet. Both work well in both .44Spl & .44Rus cases. For Cowboy Shooting I...

    These days it's 8.0grs of Unique/250 #429421 or RCBS 250KT for Me. In the past I shot 1,000's & 1,000's of a little heavier load of 9.5grs of Unique under a 250gr #429421.

    I'm quite a bit like you. I tumble only the same caliber cases together. Then sort and rebox them. Decap and clean primer pockets. Check length, trim as needed. I have a powered Lyman trimmer and a Case Express behind it. So I can process a...

    Was just given COWW's for the 1st time in Years. Only about 10lbs. So I'm gonna have to go through this process. It'll be a learning experience. But as always, I find the answers here.
