    Custom Lee Sizer Die

    Is there anybody making (customizing) lee size dies (besides Lee)???
    I need a .432
    Can/will anybody here take my .430 die and ream it to .432 (for example) for less than $38 + S&H Lee wants for a custom kit?

    A dowel and fine grit wet or dry paper will do it. Go slow and check often. A few threads on the process.

    There is no problem so great, that it cannot be solved by the proper application of high explosives.

    I am not sure. A search for enlarging a size die might do it. The basic idea is use a dowel with the sandpaper wrapped around it and roll the die on a flat surface. Run a boolit thru it to check the size. Check it often. It will not take much to remove .002.

    Someone will chime in with where to get more detailed instructions.

    NOE has that .432 size die. But you need buy NOE sizing die system

    +1 on the NOE system. Got mine shortly after I began powder coating and it's proved to be the best equipment investment I've made in a long, long time. Works great for sizing pan-lubed boolits for my BPCRs, too.
