Loading Data & Reloading Procedures / Re: Loading Hi-Tek coated bullets
« Last post by Humbo on December 05, 2020, 02:40:23 pm »
I have been loading Hitek bullets on my Stars, and have had zero problems. You need to apply a little more bell to the case mouth than when loading jacketed or naked lead bullets in order to protect the coating. Here you can see me load some 44-40 with Hitek-coated bullets.

Loading Data & Reloading Procedures / Loading Hi-Tek coated bullets
« Last post by FOR_Star on December 05, 2020, 02:12:43 pm »
I have some Hi-Tek coated bullets (9MM & 45ACP) on backorder from Brazos Bullets here in Texas. When they arrive I'll enter the world of loading coated bullets.
One style of 9MM I ordered has no lube groove ("NLG"), while the other 9MM style ordered has traditional lube grooves ("LG").  The 45 ACP bullets are H&G 68 type (LG).
Anyone have experience loading Hi-Tek coated bullets on their Stars?
Do the standard Star expander plugs work well? Folks using Dillons & other progressive presses seem to favor a Lyman M type expander, according to what I've read.
Would appreciate hearing comments from some Star folks who have been loading coated bullets. Did you have to have a custom expander plug made to get good results?

It seems that commercial casters are mostly using Hi-Tek coating as their standard "lube". 

Thanks

I can always try one to see if it works better for me. Where do I get the round ball type of crank shaft handle?

I have used roller handles in the past but I prefer the round ball over the roller. With the roller you are stuck with the one position with your wrist and with the ball it seems to have more motion while making the turn so it does not get fatigued as bad.
Make any sense?

Looking for a roller handle. Preferably one that angles out like the stock one so that your hand or thumb does not contact the loader on the down stroke.

An inquiry was made about whether he had moulds. The owner stopped casting in the late 1960's, and no longer  has his moulds, only the electric lead pot. Other Bullseye related items were 2 gun boxes (1 Pachmyer, 1 other) a 60s Colt 1911 w/Bo-mar rib accurized by pistolsmith Al Dinan of Ct., as well as a couple of High Standard pistols.
Regards to all.

Looks like a good deal there!
I bought a couple of the powder tubes just like that a few years ago. Don't know who manufactured them but they are around.
Later,
