Casting and Reloading / Re: Newbie Lube Advice with Push Thru Sizers
« Last post by m-saunoras on Today at 02:32:01 AM »
I don't have a lube sizer.  I dip lube with blue carnauba, let dry and run the whole thing through the push-thru sizer.

If your going to lube the bullets in your lube/sizer then why not size them in your lube sizer?
The original push through sizers you used a pan and cake cutter.
I use a mixture off Lee's liquid lube with floor wax, I don't recall the exact mix.
It works very well. At least at the velocities I shoot cast.
It may not hold up at 3000 fps.Leo

Favorite loads / 115gr. 30 cal

Wanting a good plinker load for my '06s, I bought the noe 115gr gc mold and started playing. Standard disclaimers for safety apply. The 115 gr gc bullet pushed by 11 gr. Unique in 30-06 mixed headstamp cases proved very accurate at 25 yds and are doing 2" at 100 for me and 3" for my friend. Very pleasant to shoot and cost is probably 10-15 cents per round. I use a 3 ww to 1 lino alloy air harden. Carnuba red lube , absolutely no leading.
Ya'll have fun

The stream comes out on a bit of an angle towards where you file the notch, otherwise it still work normally when you don't pressure pour.... The angle kind of matches the angle of the rod you lift to open the valve....

Very interesting idea. I may try that on my Lee pot. It shouldn't hurt even if I didn't pressure bottom pour.

Casting and Reloading / Expander plugs
« Last post by 44MagLeo on February 15, 2019, 04:12:57 PM »
This may sound like a stupid question, but Do the NOE expander plugs work in just the Lee Universal Expander or can they work in the caliber specific dies too?
Reason I ask is the Lee set of 44Mag dies has an expander that is of .432x.429 ok for Jacketed bullets but way to tight the cast bullets.
In my Marlin 1894 I need cast bullets at about .433. For proper neck tension I should have the neck sized to .431 or .432. Such as NOE's .436x.432.
If NOE expanders fit in the expander die body I have I won't need to buy a Lee Universal Die.
