You won’t need a .442 unless you have a REALLY tight Bore. And yes my .442 is a Custom Push through sizer. I need to have a .491 Made. It never ends when you have MULTIPLE Rifles, with Various Bore Diameters It’s part of the Fun for me, figuring each rifle outWell then what is the range of the haskins dies ? Minus to plus.is your 442 sizer a custom order from lee?
I am using the sizing die for PP bullets, after wrapping with paper. My Alex Henry has a .451 bore and my Shilo Sharps has a .450 bore. So far I have used cast .443 bullets for the A. Henry and .442 BACO swaged lead bullets for the Sharps. Not sure if it will be possible, but I will be experimenting with using a .443 bullet for both, sized down to fit each respective rifle.Curtis are you using this for your PP or GG. I was considering getting one of these dies for henry and a underhammer I am building now. I have several lee sizing dies but I thing my henry needs 4505. Not sure on the under hammer barrel it is a 451 tapper octagon of 4140 steel from Oregon barrel. Whant to shoot both gg and pp out of both of these. New to pp. So what size of mould do I whant lewis. Plan on going with a 550 gr.pp flat base from barco.
With PP in ML you want them to go down with Minimal effort, You don’t want them to Fall down, and you also don’t want to Push on them. My new Rice 1-24 Twist .50 Cal is an excellent example, I sized my .493 Bullets to .492, And when patched with Strathmore 300 Series Tracing paper they finish measured at .449 Which was TO TIGHT for my Comfort. I shot an AWESOME Group with them, But i was CONSTANTLY Worrying that i was gonna Push one through the Paper Jacket. I need to be able to Size my Bullets to .491 for this Particular Bore, Then Patch them. You will get a Feel for them
At most, you might end up needing a .442 Sizer
Yes, wrapping the bullet in the paper and then running the wrapped bullet through the sizer. No lube on the paper or bullet.So you are running them threw after your wrap? And if so do you lube up the paper a bit before you run them threw. And I did order yesterday a 442 and 443 push threw lee die.
Yep, I’ve seen it both ways. Hank’s precision gun parts, Hankins custom Rifles.Hank's and Hankins the same?
