    Lyman 313631

    My Google-Fu skills are failing me today. I thought I remembered seeing a reference to a currently available copy of the discontinued Lyman 313631, perhaps from one of the boutique mould makers. ...

    I cast on my workbench in the basement. There is a window directly behind the casting area so when we started casting over 45 years ago Dad devised a system whereby we could remove the lower window...

    Used properly the Lee Loader can produce excellent ammo. The only real “weaknesses” in some sets were/are the lack of full length sizing. For rounds that thrive on neck sizing, the former is moot,...

    I would first put a little Break-Free or PB Blaster on the edges of the disk and center post and let it soak a while. Then a couple of light taps on the disk should free it up. It is spring loaded,...

    I was always impressed with the versatility, by design or coincidence, that allowed Skeeter and others to make 357 mag rounds using 38 Spl cases and seating the 357156 bullet out one groove higher. ...

    The old small block single cavity Ideal 3118 throwing a 118 gr bullet was originally my baseline bullet design for 32s in general, especially 32-20, 32 S&W Long, and 32 H&R. At one time I had two...

    The ones that will accept an expander button were probably intended for use with a TL Jr.

    This is my own WAG and worth what you paid for it. The Martini type rifle may have started out as one of the common and cheap (back then) Cadet Models and was somebody’s economy project to...

    Making a 22 Hornet or a 222 R out of it? Either way, it should be a winner. Many years ago I had a high block low wall in 32 RF. We bushed the block and rechambered it to 32 H&R. Bore was kinda...

    I think for the dies to “decap only” they would just put in the rod that would be appropriate to the bullet diameter. The ones with a muzzle expander were (supposedly) only found in the TruLine Jr...

    With a large enough mill or lathe and a way to hold it, a couple of passes with a good cutting tool should take care of that. Of course a nice bushing to make the hole suitable to take 7/8 X 14 dies...

    You can tell it’s a correct high low wall block because the back corners are more rounded than those of a regular high wall. The early low wall receivers I’ve seen all had the flares like yours, and...

    If I’m reading your question correctly, Scott has your answer. I believe there were only 3 lengths of expander die bodies and only the piece in the middle changed.

    Then again, I could be wrong,...

    It’s a shame that you got “timed out” on the 45 combo BH. It would have been worth owning, and at that price would have been a bargain, IMHO.
