I have five of them that will be available in the near future.   I'm in the process of cleaning them up.

So you mean something like this?   Standard product, but not all that common.

Ok so I recently got into the 500 magnum world and have done extensive reading on castboolits.gunloads.com regarding the subject.  A member by the name of John Ross  showed a picture of his set up and his star lubers all sport a extension which I would say hold 2 to 3 sticks, he said star made these for him at some point.

Does anyone know about these extensions?

Man I thought I was doing well with four Stars and a Camdex.

The makers of Kroil make a phenomenal preservative that sprays on. Drys almost like plastic dip but can be removed with a degreaser.

To be honest any material would work for the moment and most likely 100,000 rounds, I just want this fixed right for who ever gets it after I am done using it and I have walked into heaven's gates.

I have a 7 dillon rl1000 presses and rarely use my 2 two star progressives or universal, however I like knowing they are in tip top shape and are fully utilized. I gave thought to preserving them in cosmoline type preserver and setting them in a stash similar to the story sun down at coffin rock.

4140 prehard would probably work.

That was my thoughts the more I stared at the plug, I always maintain a healthy supply of 0-1 and w-1 tool steel so I will make a replacement when I get time.

Greetings,

Aluminum will work for a temporary setting.

I use a piece of 0.750" tool steel and machine it to length. No need to harden it.

Cheers,

Dave

I am in the middle of modififying a star progressive to have separate bullet seating and bullet crimping capabilities.

I made a plug from aluminum for the hole in the base I created,  I am curious if this choice of material will last and provide uniform results as the rounds are crimped and downward force applied?
