Star Reloaders / Re: Progressive InLine Fabrications Mount
« Last post by afkirby on December 01, 2022, 10:06:52 am »
It's been a while, but I have the press setup.  I'm trying to preserve some bench space so I mounted it all to a grinder stand.  The InLine mount is well made, and the primers and live cartridges fall freely.  There is enough room under the mount to place a akro bin to collect the cartridges.  I plan on fabricating a little bracket to hold a small tray underneath the primer hole to collect primers.  Something similar to the system the MEC Marksman press uses.

I use a .4510. If you go much smaller you will be down sizing your bullets during seating.

Hi Bruce and Lindy,

Thank you for taking the time to reply.  These are very helpful replies!
Good to know that finding a shell plate wouldn't be an arduous search.

The video is quite informative.  Yes, that looks like a straightforward process.  Very nice to see a deeper delve into the build quality and design.  Nice stuff!!

Changing between 45 ACP and 45 Auto Rim only requires changing the shell plate.   Very easy, should only take a couple of minutes.

I have 45 Auto Rim shell plates in stock.

This is my first post here.  I've been a regular lurker for about a year, but have been aware of Star machines for decades.
I understand that to switch between 45 ACP and Auto Rim, all that's needed is a change in the shell plate.  How big of a process is that?  Looks like a partial diasassembly is in order.
I'm guessing, too, that those Auto Rim shell plates are not commonly encountered.

Currently using a Dillon 650, looking to add an auxiliary press to split duties.
So, a Universal would be in order for the above mentioned scenario.  If that's too problematic, I could make due with a .38 Progressive while using the Dillon for the other.


PS: This forum is a great resource of info.

In the photos are several parts for the Star Bullet Greaser. However, I do not see the Greaser pictured.


This vintage and reliable reloader is currently set up to load .45 cal. but have complete materials to swap to load .38 cal and .357 cal with dies,  and multiple powder bars that can be switched out.  Also instructions in printed but slightly stained papers.
