I love the idea of only having to buy sizer bushings, instead of a compete die for every size.... BRILLIANT !!!

A couple of basic questions....

1. Will your die fit the inexpensive Lee "C" style bench reloading press? (I have one)
2. Can I use the Lee nose-first bullet rams? (I have all the calibers I need in those)

I have a question on the push thru sizers, please.
How much trouble would it be to make a grease fitting of some sort (like a zerk fitting) to lube bullets while they are halfway through this die?
I'm proposing to lube the bullet with a hand-held grease gun, if the die had a zerk of some sort.
And still being able to lube the bullets just like a push thru, 1 bullet for every cycle of the press.
Is this at all possible?
thanks,
Ken

Yes - it should work in about any single stage press and LEE bullet rams should work too

Tried a screw in grease cup on one of our prototypes and it was a mess
It worked about the same way as a zerk and grease gun - sorry

I notice that some of your Nose Bushings are the correct size to use for Body Sizing for some Airgun barrels.... Will they work as a push through die for body sizing?....

Apparently  the answer is NO, because the Nose bushing do NOT have and taper inside them.... so they should not be used for body sizing....  8)

I agree they are pretty clear.  . . with the exception of one bit that instructs you to use the bushings illustrated  (F) for the sizing. I searched the pieces again and again but I never found them . Even called Al and he said you had to order them! That I knew, hell I had even bought a few before I got the die, but the instructions were clear that the bushing, part F in the picture, was to be put into the tube.
  Eventually I figured it out.
   So, if there's anything that may need clarification, I would vote for that.

Question? Say someone was to get a round stuck in there .310 bushing would it be advisable to heat the lead up with a torch to get it out?

Yeah it was me, and its stuck as %^ll. I just don't want to warp the bushing.
