Using M style expander for cast lead?

Post by Gary Wells on 11/8/2017, 11:05 am

First topic message reminder :

Will using the "M" style expander die have any detrimental effects when loading cast lead bullets?

Many thanks, Chris, I looked on his personal postings, but didn't see it. Many thanks again, everybody, for all of the responses and great info.

The reason I prefer the Lyman is because the Redding had excessive brass shavings as seen in time mark 9:55 - 11:09 in the video listed above. 

If you are willing to polish the expansion part of the Redding, you can reduce the amount of brass that is shaved off, but you run the risk of the expander no longer being evenly concentric around its axis.

Still looking for Jerry Keefer's reloading notes. I've looked under both his personal thread & the FaceBook Bullseye Group postings"

I am, a member, Ian, Rob added me a while back. But because I don't use facebook very often I am not used to it. Many thanks for the info, Ian.
