A while ago I bought a set of 3 two step expander plugs threaded for the Star machine from LSP.  They came in .452, 453, and .454 diameters and they advised the hardness was 50 Rockwell.  I have two Star machines, one dedicated for lead and the other for jacketed.  As the seating die is way in the rear the 2 step expansion allows me to start the bullet into the case by feel with no guesswork.  Works good

Does LSP still make these? Didn't see them listed on their website.

I use the .452 for jacked athe .454 for lead.  Call their office, when they turned mine I think they made about 20 sets
