Your design looks great!  Would you be willing to share the dimensions and materials so I can build one too?

You are correct, I have loaded 41 mag but nothing larger.  I will call my machinist and get mine modified.

Thanks!

Star Reloaders / Hulme case feeder dimensions
« on: October 15, 2020, 06:57:52 pm »
I recently started reloading 45 Colt and 44 Magnum and have the shell plates, expander dies, and the case feeder adapter for the Hulme case feeder.  The problem is that the case feeder is too narrow to let either case drop into the feeder.  The rim of either case is too large.  My question is how much do I need to widen the case feeder to allow the 44 and 45 cases to be fed.  Also, if I have the case feeder opened up to accept the bigger bore cases, will it adversely affect feeding the 45 ACP, 38 special, and 40 auto cases that work now.

Star Reloaders / Powder funnels
« on: November 05, 2019, 05:28:56 pm »
Just wondering if there are different powder funnels (at least that's what I think they're called) for the Star Universal.  I have both the 45 ACP and 38 special tool heads and they both have what appears to be the same powder funnel.  I am thinking about rounding up the parts (dies etc.) to load 44 magnum and 9 mm and am wondering if the powder funnel is something I want to look at.  Specifically, is the standard funnel long enough to load the 9 mm or will powder spill given the distance from the funnel to the case.  Also, since 44 magnum takes a large quantity of powder would a funnel with a larger diameter work better?

The shell plates are definitely for a Dillon 1050.
