    Now some of us will just have to budget for two of them! My dies need organizing for sure, but Id hate to get pepper juice (capsicum) on my dies, and sizing lube would give my pepper poppers a very strange taste! ;) Froggie

    Hey Mag-man, I think I still have a Tru-Line Jr set of dies for the 303 Brit, NIB. Any interest? IIRC, they are the same as the 310 dies... a CMR that decaps and a DA die. All in the pretty flat box (assuming I can find it.) Your Phriendly...

    I probably could put together a set if you can't find one elsewhere. I need to keep a set for my 310 and one for my TruLIne Jr (dedicated) but if there are enough left over parts I'll let you know. Would you be interested in a couple of the dies...

    The first gun Dad "got from me" was a Remington 870 in about 1974, IIRC. Just before he went into the hospital for the last time in January of last year, he made a list of his guns and how they should be distributed. Lo and behold I got back every...

    I’ve got a couple of 450s from Lyman as well as a old Ideal #1 I will only use for very soft lubes. As for push through, size only dies like the Lee or old Lyman types, whatever press has an empty hole, but usually my RCBS Jr. Froggie

    One financial aspect no one has mentioned is that compared to buying the 310 Tool rig (which I have and love to use) or the Classic "Whack-a-Mole" Lee Loader (which I also have but use rarely) is that if you buy the basic Lee Hand Press (with or...
