paper patching .38-55


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Gentlemen...

It is 110 degrees F outside and windy...both unpleasant conditions after acquiring a new rifle. I just picked up a High Wall in .38-55. I have had great results in paper patching the .45-70s, and I thought I might try it in this caliber as well. Herein lies the problem: I want to size the cast bullets to .366", and patch it up to .376. Now, .366 is the diameter of bullets for the 9.3 x 62, but I've not been successful in locating a sizing die that size in the usual literature.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Cordially,
Smith

You would be better off using a custom LEE push thru sizer. They cost $25 from LEE Precision. If you use a standard Lyman/RCBS die, the nose will expand unevenly if using a soft alloy ( which you should be using with PP ) and sizing down alot.

45 2.1,
I want to buy one of those custom dies from Lee.I checked their website for the cost. I wonder if 25 dollars includes shipping,or just what should I include for shipping.
Can you help me out?
Thanks,
Frank

I've bought several customs and I just told them I wanted a custom sizer to 0.xxx size and sent them a check for $25.00 and got my sizer within 3 weeks in the mail.
