    Merry Christmas! Lyman 450 Sizer/Luber with dies & top punches!

    Tumbleweed Christmas was even a bigger success than Brassy Claus dreamed of!
    Brassy Clause has 19 Helpers!

    This will start out as a drawing and then I will decide if the person drawn has been Naughty or Nice.
    If Naughty, then I will draw again until I find someone Nice!
    Naughty and nice will be determined by your activity on CastBoolits!

    Your post number will be how I draw, so don't post if you are not eligible to win. Limited to 100 entries or when I decide to pick a winner. I won't wait too long.

    Who is eligible?
    Active members of CastBoolits who do not have a nice Sizer/Luber such as a Star, LAM 1, Lam 2, Lyman 4500, or Lyman 450.
    You are eligible if you have only the older Lyman 45, Ideal, Lee push through, etc style of sizer.

    If you are chosen, immediately reply back via PM with the calibers you want to size and the moulds you will be using for those calibers and I will likely send a few sizing dies and top punches to match your moulds.
    Note: it is sometimes difficult to match top punches to non-Lyman/Ideal moulds.

    Thumbs up

    I'd like to enter this as my #450 bit the dust some time ago (have all the parts, just not the body casting). Thanks, BrassMagnet!

    I have a old Lyman 45 that's worked very good in the past but a 450 would be a great addition. Don't know how naughty or nice I've been (much improved since I had the Pit blocked), but I'd like to be considered.

    I don't have any of the fore-mentioned type sizer's but would be very pleased to be considered for this. I have no molds as yet but I will be eventually, hopefully really very soon!

    It is very kind for you to offer this BrassMagnet!

    I’m a Lee push thru guy, currently, so I’d love a shot at one of those.

    I too use the LEE sizers, don't know any different way.

    Thanks for the generosity and the suspense.

    I've got the Lee sizers, so I'm in, but I'm a naughty boy, so maybe I'm out.

    I've rebuilt my old 450 twice now, it's doing ok at the moment. Not sure of the next breakdown. If I qualify, cool if not , no worries.

    Hi, This is the 1st time I have ever won or been chosen to win something in my life.

    All I can say is a very huge TY to BrassMagnet, for his great generosity and a wonderful Xmas present(s) under the tree!!

    As to photo's of the sizer/luber and the provided accessories and supplies, I will do my best to do this.
    But first, I have to go find my camera upstairs amongst all that is stored up there.
    Of course that will please my better half for tearing into that mess!

    Slownsteady22 was kind enough to inform me he had bought a Lyman 450 and he wished me luck in finding a new winner.

    My thanks to BrassMagnet for his generosity. I look forward to learning to use my 450.
    I can see new molds in the near future. When am I going to save money?
