I still sell them, but the brass version is out of stock.  Hope to make more this winter.   The aluminum version is in stock.

PS  I have sold a lot of them, so maybe more will show up on eBay.

Isn't that one of the ones Bruce made/makes to adapt the Lee Case Collimator to a Hulme Case Feeder?  It looks familiar.

Figured it was related to a case feeder, but not sure.
You confirmed it.
Thank you!

Greetings,

Looks like a home made bracket for the Hulme Case Feeder.

It would attach to the Gooseneck at the top of the tool head.

Cheers,

Dave

Found a Star Adapter listed for sale on Ebay.
Not really sure what it adapts.  Maybe a case feeder?

Tried to upload a picture but file size was too large.
Link may not work, but copy and paste in browser should.

Loading Data & Reloading Procedures / Re: Loading Hi-Tek coated bullets

Hi Warren,
I made my expander out of A10 tool steel.
There are members on this forum that make parts for sale. Hopefully one of them can help you out.
I used Brazos 160's at 25yds last season. My 50yd load with 180's actually had less felt recoil.
Hope this helps,
Scott

Thanks for all the responses/info.  Will be interested to see how this works for me.

Scott, what was your source for the step expander?  And, thanks for the feedback on the 180 gr SWCs.  I saw some positive comments on their website and thought about trying some.  Maybe short line, maybe for both.

I used Brazos coated 180gr 45cal LSWC and had great 50yd slow-fire groups. The Ransom Rest produced consistent 2" to 2-1/2" groups [no e-mail]@ 50yds.
I'm going to order more for next season.
I have a custom step expander in my Star, so I can't address your expander question.

I too have loaded coated bullets. Specifically S&S. I found they loaded the same as jacketed heads, without having to change the belling. (It is slightly larger than loading lead) Whether it changes for you would depend how much of a bell your original setting was.
Otherwise loading was without any problems or issues, and finished rounds were of expected Star quality!
Good luck shooting!
