Loading Data & Reloading Procedures / Re: WST loads for 38 wadcutters
« on: January 11, 2012, 01:54:53 am »
Go to the Hodgdon site at and follow the directions.
It just about every load you might want.  The new Lyman 49th Reloading Handbook would also
be of help.  You can't cook without a cookbook and you can't reload without a reloading book.

Short answer...Dave, fc60 this forum can make you a new one.  He makes replacement dies for the
Star reloader that are outstanding.  Magna makes the Star lube sizer and parts.

I found an M2 on one of my Stars set up for 45ACP.  I compared it to an M3 and they
are Identical.

Star Reloaders / Re: .30 M1 Carbine seater die question
« on: July 23, 2011, 11:51:02 am »
Hello all,
The eternal question, to use or not to use lube on carbide dies.  A little lube just makes it easier
to resize.  Attached is the star directions.

Star Reloaders / Re: Primer Feed Bolt
« on: April 19, 2011, 10:57:21 pm »
There are two bolts holding the primer slide housing to the side of the steel floor base.
They are a socket head type that takes a 3/16 Allen wrench and are 1/4"x28 tpi.  Mine
measured just over 1/2" long to the base of the head.
Hope this helps.

If you look in any reloading handbook you will probably find a list of
cartridges and their respective shell holders. The Lyman 49Th edition page
457 has pistol cartridges listed. I use the RCBS numbers as I use their
shell holders on other presses.
Hope this helps.

Star Reloaders / Re: Drill JNig For Hulme Case Feeder
« on: April 02, 2011, 03:15:25 pm »
Hello Dave,
Attached is the Hulme installation sheet.  I think the jig could be made by someone
with your expertise.  If a 5/16-24 bolt had a point ground on it, the placement of the guide hole
on the jig could be found using a newer machine as a guide. I have one older Star without
the hole drilled/taped and someday I was planing on making the jig.
Just a thought.  Keep up the great work.
