Does anyone know where I might find a source of gas checks for .33 Winchester and/or .348 Winchester? I have a relative who still casts bullets and loads for them and whose supply of gas checks is dwindling.

Didn`t check Lyman but you likely can get them there too....

On the Cast Boolits website there are occasional group buys of checks in odd sizes. There is also a discussion going on about making your own gas checks:

There are some guys on castboolits who modify gas checks to make them slightly larger too if I remember correctly. (Something like a non-running drill press with a bit to just slightly expand the checks) I suspect you could buy 8mm checks and expand them to fit but that's purely a guess.

there was a guy on ebay that made a kit to make gas checks.
