Loading Data & Reloading Procedures / Re: 357 magnum load data question
« on: January 16, 2021, 12:47:03 am »
Mike
Your Question: I don't recall ever loading 7 grains of Bullseye for The 158 gr LSWC in 357 mag, I think that would be a little to hot.  Never had to get to 7 grs.
When developing a load for 357 mag using Bullseye I normally start with the suggested start load in "Alliant Powder reloading guide" and work up.
4.8 gr of Bullseye behind Your 158 LSWC should give a velocity of around 940 feet in a 6 inch barrel. Use Your 5 gr powder slide, load a dozen and give them a try. check for over pressure signs, check for leading, leading near the forcing cone  will indicate you need to increase the amount of powder, leading near the muzzle indicates high pressure. and then start tweeking the powder charge for accuracy.
I bought My first Star loader in 1956 "still have it" and a few more.

Using the 148 grain SWC You have on hand, I suggest a starting load of 4.8 grains of Bullseye, watch for leading near the forcing cone, if it leads, try increasing the powder by .5 grains until leading stops. Don't exceed  7.0 grains.
Use this suggestion at Your own risk !

Try using a .38 Shell plate. It should work for 10 mm.

Bill Cunningham lived in the very small city of Pioneer Ca. About 50-60 miles from My hometown of Manteca, Ca.
I've driven through Pioneer many times and regrettably didn't have time to stop and chat. Talked to Him by phone
mostly, or by massaging over the years.

Star Reloaders / Re: M-A Systems Roto-Ease and Eject-Ease
« on: June 12, 2020, 12:07:30 am »
I have Used both the MA Systems ROTO EASE and EJECT EASE,  My 2 is that they are hard to keep in adjustment and not very reliable. the ROTO EASE must be attached to the same surface as the Star reloader which is not very handy if You want to move the star reloader.  it has a hard rubber component on the flex arm that gets brittle and breaks easily. I would suggest the MOON UNIT instead.

The Eject EASE is a little more dependable but is made from bent wire and one small bump to the wires may cause malfunctions.

Sorry to be so negative about these two items, but I never really liked their performance.

Loading Data & Reloading Procedures / Re: Primer seating problerm

KYKenn

The depth of primers is easily adjusted by screwing #44 primer punch push rod up or down on the tool head. this adjustment should come after You have adjusted the Shell plate thrust nut to eliminate up and down movement but still rotate without binding. one other thing You want to do while loading is make sure the crank case handle is rotated all the way down on the down stroke.

Pure speculation:  I've heard Star made sprinklers of some sort of cast metal, could be a relationship
