    6mm Tom Turkey Die Set?

    I found this set while cleaning up, I can't find any info on it though

    Any ideas?

    Is the cartridge the "6mm Tom Turkey", or is it a 6mm die made by "Tom Turkey"? Either way, that's a new on on me...

    Does the cartridge case look like a 22 hornet expanded to 6mm .243.
    Those some old turkey hunters used in early 50's before shotgun only laws were passed.

    I'm not sure. I'll double check the stamp when I get home.

    I don't have a case for it, just been cleaning up and sorting and these were in a box of dad's junk

    I have not, I can't find anything on them. I listed them in S&S figuring someone might need them.

    RCBS just has the default 55000 # on the box for a custom set.
