    I have dies from every domestic manufacturer, and some who have long since gone out of business. The only carbide sizing rings I've ever had pull out of the die is two Redding dies, one in 10mm and one in .38 Spl./.357 Mag. Redding replaced both...

    RCBS tells me that only their electronics are made overseas, simply because they couldn't find domestic suppliers for what they needed. All their steel tools are made in the USA. Hope this helps. Fred

    I have bullet feeders on three of my Star Sizers. The others don't have them. I load my bullets into plastic tubes for the bullet feeders, and I've got enough tubes to handle about 1,000 bullets, depending on the length of the individual bullets. ...

    If you're talking about the piston for knocking the sprue loose from the sprue cutter, I've been using this one: https://www.zoro.com/speedaire-1-116-bore-round-single-acting-air-cylinder-1-stroke-5zej6/i/G1990152/ This is the piston that...

    I know nothing about 3D printing, but I doubt what I've seen in 3D printing posts about collators would be capable of keeping up with a Lube Master, which sizes and lubes bullets nose first at the rate of 6,000 bullets per hour. Normally, one Lube...

    I don't use a Jacket Maker die. I just use the two dies in the CH-4D set as they're intended to be used, only instead of using commercial jackets, I just use annealed .40 S&W cases for jackets. Hope this helps. Fred

    I've made a couple thousand .429" diameter bullets using .40 S&W cases as jackets, using CH-4D swaging dies. Just be sure to fully anneal them. There's a sticky above about using 9mm to make .40, and it's the same process. Hope this helps. ...

    I have Altamont grips on well over a dozen of my handguns, especially on Ruger Blackhawks and Single Sixes, but also on a Browning Buckmark. The only set I had an issue with was for the Buckmark, which required a small amount of hand fitting. All...

    The chamber of your firearm should be the gauge, since that's where the ammunition you build will be fired. I've been reloading 10mm for years and years, and for multiple firearms (semi-auto handguns, a S&S 610 revolver and 10mm AR Carbine). I...
