New guy here
« on: August 10, 2020, 10:45:41 am »
But not new to reloading, been running 2 single stage presses for about 20 years. A good friend gifted me a Star Universal recently. It came set up for 38 spl and a second tool head set up for45 acp. He couldn't find the shell plate or large primer parts, so I have already contacted Bruce Williams. This thing runs smooth as silk, what a piece of machinery. I'm sure that I'll have many questions in the future.
Thanks for having me.

Oh, one quick question. I noticed on the website that there was a picture of an adjustable powder bar. Anyone know if these are available and who may have them?

Adjustable powder slides can sometimes be found on Ebay.
You may also want to ask Bruce, he may have one of the older Hoags out there in his shop.

Another alternative is Rich Daniels in Ct.  On this site as    BarrelTester.   He fabricates them as needed. I have one from him and it is a quality piece.
