Stars Want to Sell/Want to Buy / Re: need Taper Crimp Die in .44mag

Thanks for the advise.
I'll be shooting heavy loads out of a revolver so I'll go for the tighter roll crimp.

When I set up the extra head for .45 Lc I'll use a taper crimp as they will be light lead loads.

Thanks,

Greetings,

The Taper Crimp die works well for light loads.

For heavy loads consider buying a second seating die to use for roll crimping at the last station.

Cheers,

Dave

Bruce is your best bet for the TC die. 

this may be of interest to you. I have a 1/2" star bar for 8.9 grs of 700-X pwd. a 2pc star 3/16 spacer bar set, and the 00 pwd housing base with the proper length screws,  can ship the 3 items to your for $60 by  small flat rate box within the US.
All are in pristine condition.
If this will get you started,let me know.

I have a 44 Taper Crimp Die in stock.   I also have a beautiful Redding Profile Crimp die with the Star 11/16-24 thread.

1/2" or 5/8"?  depends on your charge, but you can probably get by with 1/2" for 44 Special.  For 44 Magnum I would definitely go 5/8" unless you plan to shoot powder puff loads.

Setting up a new to me machine in .44mag. It came with .44 special dies so I should be close to what I need?
Can I use a 1/2" powder slide or should I plan on getting a 5/8".
Any other problems I might run into?
The hole for the taper crimp is the star threaded type.
Thanks

Star Reloaders / Re: .357 on a Progressive ?
« Last post by rbwillnj on March 28, 2018, 08:24:06 AM »
Yes, you can load .357 on a Progressive.   

You will probably need a Magnum length Expander (shorter).  The 38 Special Expander will probably interfere with the powder slide when raised enough to load .357 Magnum.  Depends on the machine.

If you will be loading full Magnum loads, you will want a 1/2" powder slide and either a set of spacers or a 1/2" powder slide housing.

If you have a case feeder, you will want an M3A top plate for the Magnum length cases.

You may want a different seating stem for you seating die depending on the bullet.

I can help with all of the above

PS  The powder slides I offer use interchangeable bushings, so I can do pretty much any charge you like.

Folks.
I just acquired my first Star press . Itís a Progressive in .38 Special . Can I load .357 magnums ?

If so what must I change and how do I go about it . I know Iíll need a new powder bar as the one in my press is for 3.5 grains of Bullseye .

If anyone can inform me where to get a different powder , and what sizes are available Iíd appreciate it .

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
