A question for those that use a Star sizer/lubricator

Post by JLK on Mon Aug 06, 2012 1:08 pm

Have any of you that use the Star sizer/lubricator found any 50 yd accuracy advantage
by sizing the bullet base first instead of nose first?
Thanks!

With the correct top punch. Base first.

If the bullet is properly sized, then no. Any issues with sizing technique will probably affect the bullet's acuracy.

For .45 H&G 068's and 130's.
I have always used "NRA Lube", 50/50 beeswax and Alox. For years
in my Lyman 450 and now my Star Lubrisizer.

I have two Star lubrisizers - one with Alox 50/50 for smokeless powder loads and the other has SPG lube for black powder bullets. The difference isn't so much for accuracy, but the SPG helps to keep BP fouling to a minimum.
