Star Reloaders / Reloading 45acp
« on: August 20, 2018, 09:21:57 pm »
When reloading 45acp today on my SU. I felt like my press was sticking sometimes on the up/down stroke.  Iím using 230gr Rainer FMJ.  Not sure if I had enough belling on the case. I did have 2 bullets peel over the case. Tamper crimp is good. Loaded up 500rds.

I did wet tumble the cases.

Case guage check all rounds, found 3x no go.

Star Reloaders / Mounting Star Universal 45 ACP

This is what I've completed so far.  Birch wood, 3 bottom compartments.  Middle for old primers, left side for casings. 

Still confirguring a ramp device.  Not done yet.  Thought of a funnel. It's working, just have to secure it.  Using 2x hooks and a bungee cord.  lol

Moon unit and ejector from Ray-Vin.com opperatoring 100% high quality. Refurb Star Press from Bruce. Awesome. The Lee collator feeder device is a must have. 

Sizing/decaping  first.  Going to wet tumble, load primers by hand and then check a few OAL with bullet seated/crimped before power.

Tim.

Star Reloaders / New Star Universal Owner

My Star Universal in .45 ACP arrived today.   I'm still setting up the press.  Next project is to built a custom mount for the Star. I do have a couple of ideas.  Wish B&G were still making their mounts.  I am one happy camper and cannot wait to start reloading. 

I would like to thank Star Machine Works/R. Bruce Williams. I am so amazed at all the literature that came with it.
