    Old Ideal, 310 tools.

    Picked up an older steel 310 tool, and an ideal tool at a gun show and I'm curious as to what their value, or worth is.

    the 310 tool is steel, seems to be in good shape, the only numbers I can discern is " 11" or possible " 44". I'm going to measure the hole to get an idea of the caliber . Can't seem to find anything about this online.


    The ideal tool is a 32-40, with mold. Seems to be in decent shape, could ne cleaned up but ive left it as is. No decaping pin.

    Pics would help.

    An 11 die code indicates .23-35,
    a 44 die code is .38-55

    Hey, thank you!
    Im in the process of acquiring several calibers of 310 dies and some handles. Ive got 30-30 and 45 70 dies, and large handles. They are a hoot to put up ammo with, and I enjoy using it more than my Dillon.
    these I picked up in hopes to sell/trade for the tools and dies I need..plus just to study a bit before letting them go to someone else.
    ill try to get some pics up.
    is there a reference for the Ideal tools? it would be good to read up on them

    I assume this is the same set of handles discussed over on "Casting and Reloading Hand Tools." Did we finally decide it is one of the handle sets drilled and tapped to the larger size 310 dies, such as 348?
