    Lee case feeder tube size

    What’s the outside diameter of the Lee Case Feeder tubes?

    Hoping they are 5/8” (0.625”) to use on my RCBS green machine.

    Checking before I order those or bulk polycarbonate tube

    Just use a poor mans calipers, check with an open end wrench by putting the jaws around the tube, whichever size wrench fits around the tube fairly snug is what size it is. Ore use a Crescent wrench and measure the jaws with a ruler.

    Just go to a hardware store and match up some pex tubing. You wind uppaying about two bucks for 4 foot of it. If by any chance the outside diameter is a little too big you can always sanded down.

    "Perforate" them...
    and not trying to steal OP's thread but does anyone know how to adapt the smaller tubes to the case feeder turret? I thought you just dropped them into the big tubes but they fall all the way down to the slide...

    Greetings,
    I made two 4 tube case feeder wheels and used Lee tubes & collator for my Green Machine (RCBS are 5 hole wheels #86532).
    I wonder if RCBS Pro Chucker 7 case feed tubes would work (part# 20000211)?
    Tube outside diameters per manufacturer:
    RCBS = .625
    Lee = .562
    Dillon = .720
    Star = .650

    Hope this helps,
    Wes
