    Lyman top punch dimensions?

    All,

    Iíd like to turn my own top punch for my new (to me) Lyman 45. I want to make a flat face punch for round nose flat point .452 slugs. I donít have another one to measure. Could any one give me some hints on how deep to make the punch? Iím assuming make the punch a few thou smaller than the die (.450?). Click image for larger version.

    Hello Inveness,

    I measured a few top punches, this should work for you.
