Star upgrades almost done
« on: September 22, 2017, 02:20:53 PM »
Been making some upgrades on my Stars this year. I have now equipped all four of them with Hulme case feeders with a Dillon collator, Ray-vin case kickers, adjustable powder bars (two still need them), all mounted on an Inline Fabrication Ultramount with quick change capabilites. Just need to add Moon indexers and possibly new powder measure tubes and I'm pretty much done.
Big thanks to Bruce at SMW, Dave, Z4lunch, Dan at Inline and Ray-vin for helping me making this happen.

Pictured is my press set up in 44-40 Winchester.

Greetings,

Nice looking shell plate.

Did not know they came in 44-40!

Cheers,

Dave

Good day.
I was lucky to come by one, it doesn't have any markings so manufacturer is unknown. As long as it works I'm happy.
I haven't done any serious reloading on the Stars until recently, they sure bring out a lot of nostalgia.

Hi Humbo

Set up looks real good. Glad to see Dave has QC plates to fit the Star reloader.

I want to get a couple of the finished round chutes for my two Stars. Did you buy them, or make them?

Thanks,
-Harold

Hi Harold,
thanks. I'm not sure if they are a stocked item, but there was no problem getting 4 of them with the correct hole pattern. But I had to drill new holes anyway, I like my Stars to be oriented a little bit sideways for easy bullet seating.
The chutes are 100% home made.
