I gave my Lee Whack-a-mole to the guy I taught to reload on it.
He just liked it so much & we were in the middle of nowhere.
I really should replace it.

Too bad Lee did not make a kit for the .577"-.450" Martini-Henry Cartridge!!!

Mark, you can get 577/450 dies from CH4D.  Lee also made dies (not sure if they still do), but they were set up for a .458 bullet; the martini needs a .468-.470 dia bullet to shoot well.  I got a bushing neck sizer with a few different bushing diameters and a bullet seating die from CH4D; they worked great.  They are 1 inch diameter IIRC, so you need a larger press with the inserts.

The good 'ol days.  I started reloading in 1976 with a Lee Loader for a .30-40 Krag.  Still have the loader set - and the Krag.

I can't listen to the Beatles' Revolver album without the smell of IMR 4064 coming to mind. 


Rubber Soul brings Channel No. 5 to mind . . . but that's another story.
