Making a powder charge slide?
« on: April 08, 2015, 12:45:46 pm »
My generous Uncle gave me a Star Press to load .45 ACP.  The only problem is that it is set up for 3.7 grains of Bullseye, which is not enough to cycle my guns.  I have been bypassing the powder charge station, and manually pouring in 5 grains of Bullseye, which is frustrating and messy.

I haven't been able to find any powder slides for sale online.  Has anyone ever tried to have a machinist make parts for their Star Press?  I'm thinking that if he could duplicate the powder slide I have, and just make the hole a little larger it might work….. Or, I could just drill out the hole in the one I have…. I'd hate to screw it up though.  Any thoughts on this?

I make powder slides and have them in stock.  Call me at (908) 750-6321. That's the number for Star Machine Works.  I'm a little surprised that StarMachineWorks.com didn't show up in your search.

Bruce made my powder slide and it drops exactly 2.8 gr BE. And he's a great dude to do business with.
