Greetings,

I think a custom 44-40 plate has been made, also.

Cheers,

From Bruce's recent post regarding shell plates:

Quote
NYKenn's list above is correct except that 40 S&W does not always fit in a 9MM/38 ACP Shell Plate.   For years I used a 9MM shell plate for 40 S&W, but I have since encountered a number of 9MM/38 ACP shell plates that would not work with 40 S&W.  The specs for the two shell plates ARE slightly different and Star did make separate 10 MM shell plate.

Add #12, a separate 10 MM shell plate to the list.

Gerry,   The purpose of the shell plate is to hold the case in the proper position for sizing and other operations.  In addition to the dimensions of the cut out for holding the cases, shell plates for each caliber are a different diameter which allows you to ensure the cases are fully seated in the shell plate by adjusting the shell locator straps.

Just because you can fit a 44 case in a 45 ACP shell plate or a 30 Carbine in a 38 Special shell plate doesn't mean the shell plate is functioning as it should.

Several years ago I purchased a collection of reloaders that included a Universal in 38 Smith & Wesson.   If even included a Lifetyme carbide sizing die marked 38 S&W.   The rest of the dies were made by Star.

When I was putting together my collection, 32 S&WL was the most difficult caliber to find.   It was certainly a caliber that Star produced, but I think there just weren't that many Stars sold in that caliber, so fewer were in circulation.   Since buying Star, I have rebuilt and configured quite a few machines in 32 S&W Long.  It's a relatively popluar caliber among Bullseye shooteres these days.

I have seen a 32 S&W long, I have yet to see a 38 S&W that was original Star.
