Star Reloaders / Re: J. Hoag adjustable powder slide
« on: February 22, 2015, 04:51:53 pm »
I have both an original Hoag as well as one that was made by Rich Daniels "Barreltester" on this site.
Both are well made, and both work very well. I have utilized them to determine a load. Once determined, I then convert to a fixed charge bar.

Stars Want to Sell/Want to Buy / Re: hulme case feeders (clones)

I have a Hulme on one of my machines that was set-up for .45 for loading 230 grains RN when I was pursuing distinguished. I have not used that machine since I legged out. It came on the machine so made use of it.  They are handy, but for me, I do not find it a need to have item and do not have it on my others.
I also make it a habit of looking at the brass before inserting it, (ie: small primer, other issue) and do not feel I am losing time or productivity.

Good luck with them.

Star History / Re: Star ammo?
« on: January 17, 2015, 06:01:09 pm »
They are not related. Star in Indianapolis began to provide bullets in the 1980s. I still have a few thousand of the .38 148gr HBWC, and .45 200gr SWC bullets. Both bullets shot very well.  Champions Shooters Supply was one of their distributors at Camp Perry. I always picked them up at Perry rather than have them shipped to lesson the possibility of damage. The Indianapolis Star company is no longer in business. I cannot recall the last year they could be found at Camp Perry but is was sometime ago.

Last time I was out in Albuquerque for NRA NPSC, I stopped in at Ron Petersons Guns and inquired about the Stars he was supposed to have. The owner was not in the store and the 'senior' employee I spoke with had no idea what-so-ever. I postulated that Mr. Peterson had them in his home.

Nice machine.

Only had chance to view a few in-lines, and none were any where near functional.
Good luck.

If only pistol, it should be fine.

Mike
Give the 550 consideration.
The square deal B is a good press, but think about what you may need or want to do in the future, as well as the features the 500 has.

Loading Data & Reloading Procedures / Re: double powder loads
« on: October 13, 2014, 07:09:48 pm »
Not doing anything wrong. Unlike the Dillon which does not drop powder except when a case is present, the Star will drop anytime you activate the head.

Easy way to eliminate this is to have an empty case on hand that you can insert and manually rotate with the plate so when you begin actual reloading, the powder will drop into it. When you remove it empty the power back in the tube.
If you use a primed case you can just load it. 

If you use just brass, use a nickel case and that will be the reminder. Just leave the spent primer in it t prevent leaking powder.

You can also just hold a case or small scale powder plate under it to collect the powder and then dump it back.

You can contact    FC60     on this site for dies, and     Barreltester     on this site for shell plate, and/or powder measures. The balance of the small pistol primer parts are fine.

Thank you Lindy.

This site is an excellent resource.

I have seen a few of these including some for sale at recent gun shows.  Most Star owners I know of customized their reloading bench in lieu of using a separate base, but it was a popular accessory for a while.

He can make a new die for you.

They are very clean and seem to be in very good condition.
They are pricey, but as the seller notes, they are hard to come by.
