    After finally gathering all my dies, primers and supplies I stand ready to make my first load of ammunition: 148 Grain Copper jacketed with Universal Clay powder. Set the auto disc measure to .37 like the manual says. Next step. Hrm. Let's check the instructions... hey where the heck are they?

    Does anyone have a copy or know where to find the instructions for the .38/357 Lee Carbide die set? I seem to have lost mine.

    That's helpful, but I'm looking for the actual instructions that came with the Carbide die set. It's a sheet that comes packed in the red plastic cylinder.

    Thanks though!

    The Lee web site, has 2-3 minute videos, on die set up. And just about anything else.
    Click on the "Instrution" tab.
    It's a great site.
    Have fun.:D

    Reports form the Range:

    The Wadcutters worked great! My sister loved them, i love them, they were absolutely wonderful.

    The .357 cowboy loads, however, were a total dud. I fired one and it barely recoiled and the bullet hit the target on the next lane from 10 feet away. I'm thinking I must have done something wrong:

    CCI Primers, 4.0 Grains Universal, 158 Grain unjacketed lead bullet. I miss something here?
