    Hollywood Shell Holder

    I have a Number 7 Hollywood shell holder and wondering what cartridge case is it for?
    A 9mm case slides into it OK, but does not set right.
    The case will rock in the holder not setting down in the holder. The case extractor groove
    is sitting on the top of the holder.
    The shell holder came with the Universal press. I may have to modify the shell holder
    so it can be used with 9mm sized cases.

    First, is it a real Hollywood? Redding, C-H, RCBS, Dunbar all made that style shellholder. Most of the real Hollywood's were not marked for caliber.

    If you can post a picture of yours we should be able to sort this out.

    There are adapters out there to be able to use regular shell holders.

    Search 'Hollywood/CH universal shell holder adapter' it'll take ya to some on ebay for about $30.
    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.

    Thanks for the info, I do have the adapter mentioned, but I
    would like to use this shell holder. Right now I have too
    many Irons in the fire, working in yard and painting in house.
    I'll get back when I can.
