Star Reloaders / Super Star reloader
« on: February 09, 2012, 12:59:47 am »
I purchased a Super Star reloader in 223 Rem Caliber. It arrived yesterday and I've loaded over 400 rounds on it to test it's performance. It has RCBS neck sizing die, RCBS seating die and a Lee "factory crimp" die in it. The powder bushing in the machine is for 26.7 gr Win 748 powder. After the initial cleaning of the machine, testing the powder charge, primer feed ,etc. I loaded nearly 50 rounds of 55 gr FMJ without even clamping it down to the bench. All my cases had been cleaned, sized and primer pockets swaged ahead of time. I could have loaded twice as many on my Super 1050 in the same time frame, but this is a STAR. This makes seven stars and two Phelps for me (we  old kids need toys too). Got my first Star in the late 60's and love them. If any one out there knows where I can get extra bushings for this machine please let me know. I need one for 25.3 gr H 335. Anyone wanting a picture, or pictures of this machine, send me your e-mail and I'll be glad to send them. This is the first super Star I've ever seen outside of pictures. My e-mail is   dstraitwell at Thanks for looking.  DD Straitwell
