    I sold off a ton of misc dies about a month ago, wish I saw this page first....would have had trade stock for ages.

    Anyways looking for these dies for the tong tools

    30-30 seater die and appropriate cartridge guide for the handles, #6 I think.
    .44 mag/spl set either the whole set or everything minus the primer seater.

    Have a few bits for trade stock (complete 38/357 set and misc) but would mostly be looking to buy.

    I have 2 small alloy handles, 1 large alloy handle, dies for 308, 30-06, and 45-70. I was going to list these on Ebay but does anyone here have an interest in these?

    I may be interested in 308 dies. Not sure if I already have a set though. I'll try to look tomorrow. May be able to use a small handle.

    Not sure if they still sell parts, but Ive bought 310 individual dies and parts direct from Lyman a few years ago. They had different diameter expanders for 38-55 I think, and different seating punches for different bullet types, just like the top punches for sizers. I had several sets of Tru-Line dies that I bought priming dies for and made into 310 dies sets.

    32-20 and 32S&W are very different - 32-20 is a necked cartridge. I have both sets. Can't give you the numbers cause I'm at work, but I can tell you they are not interchangeable.

    You can load 32 S&W Long with the 32 S&W dies.

    Both the 32 S&W and the 32-20 dies for the 310 tool are long discontinued and AFAIK they haven't offered any replacement parts for years. It might be possible to make some substitutions and cobble together a set of either caliber as needed, or you might just check with the 310 Shop about getting a custom set made. It is worth keeping in mind that a 30 carbine set will do fine for 32-20 except for the priming die which is unique to the 32-20 family. I had the devil's own time putting together a set of each for my own use.

    Frog, a Lee hand primer tool would get past the priming die problem. Not as nice as a complete set, but makes ammo.

    Malamute, don't let this get out but I prefer the Lee hand priming tool to the priming chamber of the 310 set, so I agree completely with your assessment. When I get (or put together) sets of 310 dies for a given caliber though, I like to get the whole set if possible... I'm OCD like that, don'cha know!

    Froggie, just about two years ago I got a complete set of 32-20 dies in box off eBay. After that I got a set of 32S&W dies the same way. They are available, you just have to be patient and persistent.

    Wayne,

    I found a complete TL Jr set for the 32 S&W at OGCA a few years ago for less than $20, then got a 310 set for even less at another show there a couple of years later. I had owned a complete 310 set for the 32-20 for many years but let myself be talked out of it (thinking I still had the odd parts to assemble another) then lo and behold, I ended up taking a year to gather that "extra" set! I guess if I were using them more often I'd keep up better.

    I don't have what youre looking for, but may be interested in your die set. I don't own a 44-40 gun, but may one day.

    I believe I have a complete set of 270 310 dies.

    And a complete handle and die set in the box I think, for 375 H&H. Iron handles.

    And a complete 30-06 set with aluminum handles.

    Need a set of 348 handles.

    OOOh, 25 cal stuff. I just had a 25-06 barrel turned into a 1903 action, I have no 310 stuff for 25 cal. Looks like you have the majority of a set with the Roberts dies.

    What would it take to get the 257 Roberts stuff from you? Guessing the length should be close enough to work. The dies would just have to be set out a little more

    Will a 44 mag expander work for the 44-40? I have a spare expander die with a .429 plug.

    Thanks

    I really want to get the real set of parts. Have enough makeshifts already. I'd be willing to settle for the "DA" Tru-Line Jr. versions, and shell holder, but that's as far as it goes.

    I need to go through my Stuff and see if anything else is incomplete (or surplus), but I'm too busy now. The .44-40 was the chief thing that came to mind.

    I could use a few orphan Bullet Seater Stems for loading flat face Wadcutters, if anyone has some they do not need. Or, any Orphan Stems which I cluld re profile for use in seating flat face Wadcutters.



    Also, a fast question ~ Were the old "310" Crimp Dies for .38 Special and .32 20 usually a Taper Crimp or a Roll Crimp or could one order them either way?

    Mine seem to be taper crimp, and I would prefer to have Roll Crimp if possible.

    My 4 and 5 die 38/357 sets are both roll crimp it seems.
