If you like to size your bullets nose first and have a bunch of H&I dies you might be interested in a kit I recently received from a fellow named Keith Benedict who posts over on Cast Boolits. I've pasted a couple of pictures of what was included with an explanation of each part.
Starting at the top left are the push through rods. I ordered mine in .22, 6mm, 6.5, and 30 caliber. You can order any size you want.
Next to that in a clockwise fashion is the pushrod holder. Stick a rod into the hole and then slide it into the press ram like any other shell holder.
Moving on are the guide tubes. These slide into the top of the die and as the name implies guide the bullet up and out the top. These four will cover everything up to 50 caliber.
Dropping down is the guide tube retainer but Keith also makes an adaptor that will allow you to mount a bottle on top to collect the bullets if you want that option.
Moving left are the pins to hold the guide tube retainer in place and the clip to hold the H&I die in the threaded body.
Finally on the lower left is the 7/8-14 threaded die body itself.
The bottom picture is of the ready to use die and rod.
Keith posts as theperfessor over on Cast Boolits and can be reached by email or a PM on that site. He seems to respond and ship quickly. Cost of the kit as shown is $55 shipped or if you wanted the kit with only one push rod it's $35 shipped. Individual push rods can be had for 10 bucks apiece.
The thing does exactly what it's supposed to do and the quality is right up there. Like I said in the beginning of this if you like nose first sizing and have a bunch of dies laying around this ain't a bad way to go. It takes a little more oomph to get the bullet through the die because of the longer sizing surface of the Lyman and RCBS H&I dies compared to Lees but you get used to it fast and it's not a problem.
Pete try here. It should take you to the thread where i ordered mine and then you can either PM or email him by right clicking on his name. I think he's in production mode now so there shouldn't be much or any of a wait. I know I didn't wait long for mine.
Pat, thanks for the publicity. I just joined this forum and until I read the rules I don't want to post anything here of a commercial nature. Rather not come on like a troll. I also want to read some of the posts to get a flavor for the place. So far it seems like a friendly place.
