« on: November 04, 2015, 02:42:58 PM »
Has anyone adapted the Lee Case Feeded to a Star Press, specifically for .45 ACP?

Hi Allaces,

 Yes  I tried to adapt it and it failed with anything heaver than 185 gr bullet.
 I  was loading bullets from a H&G mould and anything heaver like (200 gr) would slip down
 the plastic feed arm and try to tip the cases over. There isn't enough adjustment to make it work.
 
 It worked well with other calibers but the .45 ACP was a disaster.

I think you guys might be talking about two different things, the Lee Case Feeder and the Lee Bullet Feeder????

I make an adapter to add Lee Case Feeder Tubes to a Star reloader.  Here is a Link to my listing in the WTS/WTB area;

I currently have the aluminum version in stock.   I also have a couple Lee Case Feeders and Collators in stock so you can do one stop shopping.   If interested please contact me directly.
