How much to install a new carbide ring in a .45 ACP die? .452 jacketed bullets don't got no neck tension, even with no expader employed...

Star 45 dies

Star reloader dies come with factory installed carbide rings. If you want your brass to hold jacketed bullets use GI 45acp brass that the weapon and bullets were designed for. Remington brass is too thin to hold bullets with the standard .452 diameter bullets. Their nickel plated is the worst offender. This statement is taken from my 1979 booklet "How To Live With And Love Your Progressive Reloader" That I included in the thousand progressive reloaders I sold of several brands.

I do have one two ring 2 step 45 die for .451 jacketed bullets but it is part of a new Star Reloader for sale.

I still have some lots of a thousand GI 45acp WCC77 brass that I bought and had cleaned, inspected sorted and boxed by my scout troop in new Fits lifetime 50 hole ammo boxes. Inquire for my old and new brass collection inventory. [email protected],com
