    Missing seating die

    Strange things are afoot. I decide today to start loading for my m1, which I havenít done in 20 years or so. I was going through my stuff and I have several lbs of IMR4895 and some 4064, a lot of Sierra and Hornady 168 BTHP match and a lot of Unused Winchester brass and when I pulled hour my RCBS die box I found that only the sizing die was in there. I only keep my dies in the garage and only load in there and have never lent it to anyone so I canít imagine how it got lost unless alien burglars from Mars took it. I might have to get a new set. BAH!
    God is fluxing me which is good but it is not fun.

    In a press you don't normally use or have stored-away?
    Take a kid to the range, you'll both be glad you did.

    Did you store them anywhere close to a dryer?
    You know there is a window to the parallel Universe in them.

    That's why you can put two pairs of socks in one; and later, only take out two socks---
    but they don't match.
    It wasn't playing the blame game, finding fault, and complaining about every little thing that made America great.
    It was God, guns, and guts.

    Go through all your die boxes. It may have been living in sin with another caliber for all these years! I hope there weren’t three dies in that box, that would be disgusting!!!

    Check the Fridge? well before you buy another I was at an auction awhile back and bought some RCBS 30-06 dies and when I got home there were 3 seating dies and no sizing dies. They had to have been swapped around when I looked at them before sale it only had the sizing die and seating die? So if you want the one the aliens put in just PM your address and I send it home.

    What other set could you have paired that seating die with for installing bullets with one and crimping with the other, in a 3-die set? It would have to be close to 30 caliper? 308? 30-30? 300 Win Mag?

    Celebrating today I found it in the .45 acp box. I guess I did not look closely enough. A little bit of grime and surface rust cleaning and I am good to go. Now to get a good recipe and to the range.
