    Check makers for .41 and .45?

    I have Freechex III tools for .30, .357 and .44 which I am very happy with.
    Have been trying to contact Charles for over a year now to get .41 and .45 tools, but cannot get any anwers.

    Does anyone here know of someone making dies for .41 and .45? I will want to use aluminum sheet .009 or .014 and calibers I will load are .41 Mag and .454 Casull.
    Shoot from a rest at 25/50/100 yards, then post your groupings. That is the only way to compare accuracy results.

    Charles is retired? Semi retired?

    Not running the business like he used to.

    For the .41 caliber..are you using the Lyman 410610 bullet? If so I'll clue you in on a "hack" that I discovered.

    Charles is recovering from major surgery he has a year to go. He is starting to make custom orders if you are not in a hurry.

    If you use thick enough aluminum stock with your .44 Cal FreechexIII, the produced gas checks will fit the 410610 base. On mine they fit tightly and shoot accurately.

    Thank you, I will try it!

    I tried a new email to Charles today and received a quick reply that he will look into it. He has not responded to my previous mail, which may be due to his illness. Now let's hope for some dies eventually.

    I'll be darned if they didn't fit just perfectly! Thank you, Wally!

    I use .014 aluminum shim stock for my .44 and these fit the .41 as well.

    The bullets here are 410610 that originally drop .410 but are beagled to .415 and sized to .414.
