Looking for the Lyman (or other brand) M Die for .45 ACP. All online sources, including Lyman list this die on backorder only.

Best Regards,
Oleg.

Thanks, Jim!

Alex was doing his best to talk me out of buying his parts because they are expensive for my needs! Smile
But I may have to go that route.

Best Regards,
Oleg.

Lyman shows the M die in stock. At least it goes in my cart with no warning, even qty 2.

Another possible option is the Lyman multi expand charge die (7767901). Natchez has it. But I have no idea what the dimensions of the expanders are, and Lyman has no info on it. Looks like they may have replaced it with a taller version, but there's no info on that either (7767905).

Redding makes expanders that 'look' like an M die, with the extra larger section below the flare. But they're rather small in diameter, intended for jacketed bullets. The standard model is a tiny bit larger (.4495) than the deluxe TiN coated one, with my samples.

I'll put in a plug for the PE die as well. Makes seating cast bullets so much nicer. And some or all of the pieces are still usable if you upgrade equipment down the road.

When you get the die and take it apart to clean it put a drop of blue loctite on the 2 piece stem because it will come loose over time
