Yes,   I have tons of 38 Special shell plates and dies and I offer them at much lower prices than other calibers.

As this is the most common caliber, expect you should have no problem.

Certainly can contact Bruce Williams at RBWillNJ on this board.

Hello I want to purchase a 38 special shell plate and die set and a extra seating die so I can crimp separately.

I never can get my email right on here so please call or text me.

What about dies, is there someone who makes dies for the Star sizers?

Greetings,

Original Star dies are made of Tool Steel, hardened, outside ground, inside honed, and the leade polished.

Not to mention the holes on the side to grease the bullet....

Also note the profile of the entry hole of the die. It is a slightly larger diameter followed by a taper.

They look simple; but, are a precision tool.

Lots of folks are making dies made on a lathe with no heat treat.

Only a small piece of grit will scratch/score the inside of the die and your bullets will now have a scratch on the outside.

If you mistakenly press a slightly oversize die (the 0.7500" diameter) into your press, all your original Star dies may start to leak lube at the top and bottom because the hole in the Greaser was swaged larger in diameter.

Machining a die properly is not difficult; yet, it is time consuming to do right. Especially one die at a time. Doing ten identical dies would make it less tedious.

I do not envy your quest for aftermarket dies.

Cheers,

Dave

I assume you want a flat punch like those offered by Magma.   I can make Lubesizer punches.

As it turns out, I have a bucket of unhardened expanders that use the same thread as the lubesizer punches.   They are easy to turn down into punches.   I can also do nose punches, but I need a sample bullet.

I also have the punch nuts as they are the same as the expander nuts.
