    The OD of the dies might be a touch larger than the adapter for your #55. I would measure to compare them. If that is the case, you might be able to have a machinist take an old 310 body and modify it to act like a tap so you clean the threads out.

    Does anyone have any leads on where to buy a turret that accepts the 7/8-14 dies? I know some were made/sold a few years back, but I can’t seem to find anyone who currently is making them. I don’t have the tools nor access to anyone I know that could make one.

    Yes the dies are .006" larger in diameter.

    Now I got another 310 set,the steel made tong says "38 spl" and the dies fit perfectly in the Junior press turret.

    The non-fitting large dies came with a 357 aluminum tool.

    Petander, I have come to believe you've encountered a phenomenon known as "tolerance stacking." As you are no doubt aware, manufacturers have a defined range of acceptance, + or - from the specified size. If you try to fit a maximum size part into a minimum size hole, the result is a too tight or even unusable fit. In a best case scenario, big would match up with big and small with small, but obviously several decades later and half a world away, our old friend Murphy and his infamous Law will come into play, and there we are.

    Remind me please, what is your unusable die? Is it a caliber we can easily swap out for you? Individual dies can pretty easily be tossed in a mailing envelope labeled as the metal tool die it is, only without mentioning it is for reloading or gun stuff.

    Froggie,thank you for the swapping idea - but I can use these all. A full 357 mag 310 tong set is nice to have, now with the "new" 38 Special set I'm just fine with the turret press and/or tong set.

    You should be able to adjust your 38 Special dies to be able to load .357 Magnum with them also .
