I finally picked up a lubrisizer, and am now looking into the top punch issue for the Lee molds I use.

I'm aware of the chart at http://www.castpics.net/.

Two of the molds I'm currently using are Lee's .40 175 grain truncated cone, and Lee's .38 158 grain SWC. Both are flat nose bullets. For these, would I be just as well off to get the top punch for a full wadcutter bullet?

For all my SWC & RNFP 357 bullets I use the 495 top punch

I also fashioned 1 that was just flat from a 1/4 inch bolt , not purty but works !!

Ya can give the top punch a custom fit by oiling a bullet & fillin a top punch with qwik set epoxy & squishing the nose in it !!


:D

Thanks, GP100man, I almost got up and measured my punches. ;) Need a better one for my 452424 Lyman boolits, epoxy may just work. Spec'd punch buggers up too many. :(
