Star Reloaders / D. NO. 6 Powder Bars
« on: October 10, 2012, 09:59:28 am »
I have several Powder Bars marked D. NO. 6

Does anyone know what powder that is?   I'm not familiar with it.

I have a collection of Star BE powder slides all marked on their sides with the weight of Bullseye powder that the slide actually dropped.  It has been my experience for the past 10 years or so, since I started reloading with Stars, that BE powder slides always drop 0.2-0.3 grains more BE than marked on the slide...........until now.

I just bought an 8 pounder of Bullseye, and now my BE powder slides are giving me the exact charge Star stamped on the slide.

I have four original Star 38 Special Taper Crimp Dies.  Selling for $40 each plus shipping.

I have a 40 S&W taper crimp die that I bought from Bill Cunningham many years ago.  I think it is original Star, but I can't be sure.  The price for this die is $35 plus shipping.

Star Reloaders / Yellow Star Decal
« on: August 15, 2011, 01:44:55 pm »
Anyone ever see a Star decal like this one?   The original owner, a Bullseye 2650 shooter said he bought it new from Star in 1966 or 1967.
It's the only one like it that I have come accross.

Star Reloaders / Angle Lever Cam 49/49U
« on: April 04, 2011, 05:11:32 pm »
I little while back a question came up about the difference between the Angle Lever Cam for a Progressive and a Universal, 49 and 49U.

The difference is that because the steel base of a Universal is slightly larger in diameter than the steel base of a Progressive, the 49U steps out further from the tool head than the 49.   See attached pictures.

Stars Want to Sell/Want to Buy / WTS - New Primer Magazines
« on: October 18, 2010, 11:23:35 am »
The standard Star Primer Magazine is 13" long.  Star also made a 15 1/4" long version that easily holds 100 primers.  I produce replicas of both versions.   I also produce Primer Follower rods.   If you purchase a 15 1/4" version you will need a Primer Follower rod to match.

The price for Large or Small Primer Magazines in either length is $35 plus shipping.   Primer follower rods are $15 each.
