I was told that they will not work in the Star sizer.

AFAIK, Saeco (Redding) dies and punches don't work in anything else. But I think maybe Herters had a press that used dies like that?

Lyman and RCBS are interchangeable.

Greetings,

In the old days, SAECO did make greaser dies for the Star.

I have one in 0.314".

Proudly stamped "SAECO" on the flange.

Cheers,

Dave

You can get any size Star bullet lube/sizing die you need.  On the Cast Bolts forum, there are vendors that will hone smaller dies to whatever you need:

He does an excellent job. I've had him make several "off" sized and standard sized Star sizer dies for me.
