    The upper die (punch) is held in with a 5/16 fine thread bolt 2 1/4"long. Do you have the threaded piece that fits in the top of the press? The CH uses a 1 1/16" dia shaft threaded 18 tpi in the top of the press. The Luger press uses a 7/8 14...

    I use a Lyman 75gr cast with 4.5 grs of W 231 for a low velocity 22lr replacement round. I use the same boolit with 13.5 grs of AA 1680 for 2010 fps. I don't know of any 55gr bullets available in .258. Hornady makes a 60gr but they are not easy to...
