    Gotcha, RichardB. Looks like Maybe RCBS, since they have a round nose 230 gr. Are they ok? Which does bring up a question, why do some do a flat nose 230 gr? Is there an advantage to that I may be unaware of? I kind of like the nostalgic...

    In my quest for boolit equipment, my dad gave me, among other things, the Lyman 45 lube/sizer he's been using steadily for some 50 years or so. He's 80, so it coulda been longer... only reason he parted with it is he said he has a few of them......
