WTB - Lyman bullet sizing dies


Recommended Posts

Howdy folks. New shooter here who picked a fine time to start burning a lot of ammo!  Anyway - looking for some sizing dies for my Lyman 45 and always seem to be a minute late when you guys post em. 
 

Looking for .356, .358, .430 and .452

 

PM me with any feedback, please!

Do some research for yourself,  but I think RCBS will fit the Lyman 45.  This will double your chances.

Fits RCBS Lube-A-Matic-2 Bullet Sizer/Lubricator and the Lyman 450/4500 Lube Sizer.

Thanks Warden!  I do believe you’re right. The catalogues always mention the 450/4500 for interchangability but not the 45. I recon ‘cause they haven’t made the 45 for about that many years now!  I think they’re all the same dies though. My 45 has a set screw to hold the die in place.  Thanks again for your thorough advice and links.

The 450 and 4500 dies will work in a 45. I have a few extras at the house. I'll PM you with what I have this evening.

JJ,

 

Here are the sizers (and top punches) and lube I have available if any of them work for you:

 

The first picture shows  .358 and .452 dies with three different 45 caliber top punches. $55.00 plus shipping for these items.

 

Good luck in your search and happy casting!

Major, JJ Reb bought them, but thanks for the offer! Did you notice that there is another .358 sizing die on the far left in picture 4?

I may have something available. I do have a Lyman 4500 with a heater available. I have several versions of 45 sizers. I'll confirm which I'm still using (I've gone to powder coating and size larger than .452).

btw; I have a lot of lead and bullet alloy available including linotype and 'magnum' mixes.
