Im trying to sock up all this information. I nevere thought Re-Loading would be so complex  To use one of these Powder Lock-Out Dies, DO you need a 8-10 station press? Or can they be used on a 5 station Hornady LnL AP?

Here is a RCBS lockout die on my Hornady Lock n Load AP. I use Hornady dies. Their seating die seats and crimps just fine on one station.

I just recently had a local gun shop get in some factory Winchester 44-40.  First he was able to get in years!  But he said to hold onto my hat $125. 






That box looks a little older than new....what is the stamp code on the inside of one of the end flaps?

I'd be willing to accept them adding $5 per bottle to give them a better profit margin to get some Trailboss again.  :)

As far as I am concerned, they can keep it and get me some Clays and Unique. I don't like it.  Clays spoiled me.

Probably a dumb question, but what did everyone switch to after TrailBoss went extinct? 

After years of Trailboss, I started experimenting with Unique. Now it is scarce. I also tried Tin Star. Good, but generally a little warm for CAS in the revolvers, at least at the low end of published loads.  So I switched to APP. Love that stuff!


I recently got lucky and got into a decent amount of Trailboss so I'm set for a few years. I'll relegate Unique to my 44 Special Skeeter loads.


Most of my shooting this year with be with APP.

Just imagine what TB will cost! Considering it's just over half a pound in the bottle to begin with. Probably right around $100 for an actual pound.

If it gets to that price l’ll find something else.
