    Sizing to .600 for Snider

    Hello all,

    Recently picked up a used acurrate moulds 60-480B for my sniders. Today, they casted about .606 with a mostly wheel weight mixture.

    How do you all size your large boolits?

    I do own a RCBS lube a matic but the die set screw has an inner dia of about ~.590. S&S firearms makes custom sizers up to .600.

    Should I look for a custom push through die?

    A push-through works fine in the larger calibers when you don't need high production quantity.

    Keep it to yourself.

    X-ring services will sell you a .600 sizer that fits on your loading press. When I get mine I can tell you if it's any good.

    I ended up with the same one from Martyn after posting on British militaria forums. Priced nicely, it does exactly what I needed.

    Now I just need to load them up when I can get ahold of some primers…

    Are WW's not a little hard for Snider use? I will be getting one from my Uncle's estate sometime this summer.
