Hit the press jackpot

I traded a friend of mine 500 rds of 45acp 230 grain hollow points. In return i recieved 2 MEC presses 2 RCBS single stage presses 1 Brown Bair H press and the best....1 Star Universal press and 1 Star lube sizer. My question ... do they still make dies for that Star lube sizer ?.... it only had 2 dies one .358 and one .3565.

Any help would be welcome

Star is out of business. Magma Engineering makes dies for them now.

Good god, man. Jackpot is correct!
If he wasn't a friend, I'd say you stole most of that.


There are several guys on the castboolits forums that make custom dies for Star/Magma sizers. They're usually cheaper than Magma's prices, and you can customize to your heart's content: diameter, lube hole locations, spacing, number, etc.
