Hi All,

Can you recommend a plug to buy for the Lyman M Die Expander for 38 special.  I would like to load accurate 148 WCHB.  Is there a preferred plug for this die for that bullet?

I just got the die and it did not come with a plug.  It just looks like the shaft with a female tread in the end.  No plug.  Is that normal?

Best,

Joe

You bought the die new? It should have a two step expander plug with it.

Did not come with one.  I think I need to return.

Did you specify which expanding plug you wanted?
You may have only ordered the body.

Would you guys suggest 0.360 expander if I am going to use a 0.358 bullet? I tested a few bullets of different shapes and diameters.  The one with the greatest potential is the Zero 0.358 WCHB.  So, I would want to load that.

Would a 0.360 expander be the best for that 0.358 diameter WCHB bullet?

Also, should I get the short or the long stem?

I would first try a .360" expander, and one that would expand to about to the depth the HBWC will extend down to where the base of the bullet will go.
