I'm always looking to add various reloading equipment to my collection. Extra dies, scales, manuals, presses, brass,ETC. It does not matter what caliber, make or model. Let me know what you have that your willing to sell. Thanks!!!

Dave sounds good, however I have three models of that type all ready Two Daughters 12 and 9 and a son thats 3. He helps me sort brass.LOL. But if your step son cares to visit the USA he is welcome to stay with us.

I was cleaning the primer pockets in the normal way......take a case, use the little black Lee jobbie and blow out the debris before putting into the loading block ready for priming. My 2 year old watched carefully then started taking cases from the unclean pile, blowing the primer pocket and then handing them to me. I had to laugh! He really is very cute.

My real scores have been little ones that have paid off. I was given a Simplex 303/25 FL sizing Vice type die by a complete stranger on an Aussie hunting forum I'm a member of. He saw my wanted ad and sent it to me even paying for the postage! How cool is that!  

It's excellent for forming cases from 303 British brass and consists basically of the die and a little rod that goes in a hole in the top of the die to knock out the re-sized case. Since it sizes slowly in a large bench vice it virtually never wrecks cases. In addition it actually sizes the cases a little smaller at the shoulder than standard 7/8 dies for a press. Since there are so many different 303/25s out there in Oz often with quite different chamber sizes it's an excellent thing. I'll have to post a pic of it actually.

The other good score was a an old 2 die RCBS 303 FL sizing set for $20. It's a little knocked around but the dies are fine on the inside and should be good for any 303 stuff I have have to do in the future. I will eventually buy a 303 Lee Loader however because they're such an excellent tool and neck size the case.

Actually I've been looking for a 303/25 Lee Loader. I saw once that belonged to a mate just after I bought my '25 and have been searching for one since. He had one in 303/270 as well but the only way you'd get them off him would be by prying them out his cold dead hands!

BTW, if anyone has a Lee Loader in 8x57 or 25-20 give me yell. They neck size and can assemble a new round anywhere. What more could you ask for?!!
