    If you happen to find an extra PC #10 in that assortment, I could use one for my latest field kit. :

    Froggie, I didn't luck out and find any 32-20 stuff in the mix. I'll keep my eyes open for one. The bulk lot I just got had lots of 30 cal stuff and even a set of 7 and 8 mm dies. Actually found a set of 22-250 dies too. Got enough #2 PCs to fill out every set of dies I had that use them.

    My Little 310 Kit

    Hi all. My field kit isn't near as fancy as some of yours. I set mine up for only one cartridge (.45-70) so I could reload a standard load in the field. I've already set up the dies for my load, which many of you will recognize as Larry Gibson's .45-70 plinking round with a 275gr RNFP (Rapine clone) over 8.0gr Bullseye (which is almost exactly what a 9mm case holds as a dipper.) My kit provides enough components to reload ~55 cartridges. So if I start with a 20 rd McKeever box (or Prairie Belt,) that's 75 shots. The other nice thing about this container is everything is stored neat and protected in a relatively small package (~9"x5"x2.5".) Ed

    All the components laid out. I keep lanolin in the little red cup to lube the cases, and the rag is old T-shirt material to cushion the handles and wipe off lube.

    RedLegEd,

    Yours is a very neat and compact kit tailored to a specific task. Nice!

    To: RedLegEd,

    SU-WEEEET!

    That does what I've tried to do, but adds a lot of class. Also, with that shape and size, I'm sure it packs away really well. I think I can see a similar set-up in my future. Thanks for sharing.

    So I got my flat rate box in and I'm gonna need a bigger box. I think I have a solution to hold dies, when I get it in the box I'll post a finished picture.
    I also walked through an antique mall last week when a set of steel handles jumped out at me from a case. I grabbed them up and under the freckles of rust and a thick layer of dust i figured i would find a set of cal marked handles. As soon as I opened them I was shocked to find a #1 shell adapter screwed into a small set of universal steel handles, all marked as " bullet mold 35$". I darn near broke my wrist trying to get my wallet out.
