    Thanks, Vall. I hadn't even thought of that possibility! I just went down to the junk bench (supposedly work bench) and got out a random #7 J-type shell holder. The 9.3 X 74R feels a little "scratchy" going in, but it goes in. Success! [smilie=p:...

    Update: I got out the Pacific and blew out the cobwebs... it looks like it is ready to go, at least for the case forming phase of this project. I took a box (of the 4 I bought) and primed those 25 cases with Winchester LRPs using a dependable old...

    Good news! Now that friend Vall told us about the 9.3x74R brass and it has arrived, Iíve finally figured out how to get into my safe so I can get to my Ballard Pacific. I think I can find my Barry Darr bullet mould, and I have a bunch of GOEX and...

    Well Magnet Man, somewhere between the event horizon and the actual black hole in my basement there should be some boxed sets classified as trading material. I had the previously mentioned TL Jr boxed set for 303 Brit as well as a backup set of 310...

    Well Brass, those TL Jr die sets seem to have slipped into the black hole of my loading area. I remember distinctly having two 303 Brit sets with one going to my brother. I thought I still had the other, but it seems to have passed the event...

    Now some of us will just have to budget for two of them! My dies need organizing for sure, but Iíd 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...
