    Don't bend the handle over this, my .501 will not size bullets if they are hard cast, I have to run them through the Rockchucker, using the Star die......I have made up a Star die holder for using star dies on my rockchucker, but this is the only time I've needed to.
    I'm only needing to size .002" or so.
