Star Reloaders / Shockey progressive on ebay
« on: March 12, 2010, 04:59:42 pm »
Look at the Shockey progressive listed under "Star reloading."  As an item of academic interest, I'd like to hear if Ken Walters has ever seen one.  I assume it was built by Richard Shockey, the El Reno, OK. pistolsmith.

Star Reloaders / safety cam spring
« on: January 21, 2008, 10:47:49 am »
Being new to progressive reloaders, I'm nervous about a double charge.  I got tired of peering into the case every time, so I just bought a safety cam for my Star, complete with spring.  I'm trying to install, but where do I attach the (short) free end of the spring so that cam will return to counter clockwise position and block the head from being pulled a second time w/o rotation?

Loading Data & Reloading Procedures / Sticking Shell Plate
« on: October 18, 2007, 12:58:59 pm »
Just recently my shell plate has been harder to turn.  (Universal press, loading .45 ACP.)  I've tried raising the shell plate thrust nut, wiping the underside of the shell plate and thrust nut and the floor base under the shell plate.  Nothing looks scored or worn.  I sprayed a bit of powdered graphite on the floor base and on the top of the shell plate where it contacts the thrust nut.  Then I screwed down the thrust nut to a position very slightly looser than it had been.  I'm a fairly new Star user, but I've loaded some 500-1000 rounds before this problem surfaced.  I've got the original Star instruction sheet, but it seems to say nothing about lubing this area.

Does anyone lube this area with liquid lube?  I've felt the graphite is better since it will not attract primer grit, etc.



Loading Data & Reloading Procedures / Accurate Arms powder

Does anyone out there load Accurate Arms powder?  I have a OO powder slide marked 3.8 grains, Accurate Arms No. 2.  Got it with a bunch of stuff.  Any experience with that load?  (I use 3.8 BE myself.)


Star Reloaders / Star Machine Works web page

Does anyone know what happened to the web page for Star Machine Works?  I had it on my "Favorite Places" but can't get it to come up any more.

I don't know, being new to Star machines, how good a source of parts they were.  I see references to various people's names and maybe one of those is the proprietor?
