    6pt... The sizers are on the way! The .359" and .379" are cataloged sizes and you can actually buy them cheaper through MidwayUSA, Boses, etc. than I can get them from Lee.

    How much of that stuff gets under the gas check ?

    Also how much is left on the nose after the entire sequence ?
    If you do it like I do in the sequence above, there is very little on the base of the bullet. You can snap the checks on before you tumble. You will knock some off while they rattle around.

    Take a look at the last picture, there is very little on the nose of the bullets. Keep an old rag near by and wipe the entry end of the sizing die on a regular basis.

    I guess I had special order those sizers. Oh well, my inventory will grow another couple thousand bucks! They will be available when the molds are in inventory. At least they do have the .311" and .323" kits...

    Just a couple of quick questions.

    After you seat the gas check by hand and dip them, is that when you run them through the sizer?

    If so do you need to lube them after sizing like the Lee alox bottle says or are you done?
    In any type of fight, & especially gun fights, there are no winners ..... just varying degrees of losers. The only fight you win is the one you never get into.

    Yes. After the hand dip and when the lube has setup and dried, I size them which also seats the gas checks.

    I don't re-lube them. The lube grooves are full of Alox.

    As I was reading your post questions kept poping in my head as i am new to casting. My thanks to everyone as yall asked the questions I was wondering about, with just one left over:

    As you size the boolits all the excess alox is left behind on th feed side of the sizer, is this recycled like the excess from the paper? and I presume you thin it to reincorprate it in the jug.

    Can't wait for the arrival of 358-190!!
