    Not talking just components but tools of the trade.
    Mine is shell plates for the pro 2000 I bought and I really want one of those 3 way cutters for my trim pro 2. It’s my biggest want these days.

    You'll get sticker shock at the price of the RCBS unit. $71.95 + tax at our local SW. I bought mine three yrs a go for under $60 including tax.

    Bill, I was able to order one from cabalas’s Canada web site, Canada dollars will get converted to US dollars.
    It came out to be the same price if I bought this in US.

    Maybe 243 Win Lee dies? Otherwise, I'm set.

    These pop up on Midway, if you join the wait list.

    A good way to trim 1/4” off of 16ga hulls. I’m thinking about a spring loaded razor blade on a pedestal and using a rubber stopper pushed into the shell with a bolt through it with a drill turning the bolt. Haven’t felt like going to Lowe’s to get a rubber stopper or it would have already happened.

    I think I am going the opposite direction. Since it is frigid outside and I am bored, I will be sorting through my bullet molds and organizing them. It is possible that will come across something I need, but I doubt it. More likely I will end the sorting session with 4 piles of molds: rifle, handgun, black powder, and sell. The ones in the last pile will go up on ebay. I suspect there will be more than a few in that pile simply because I went on an extended mold buying spree and some worked out while others did not.

    Well, dug through my mold collection and there are a few that are surplus to current requirements, but I guess I am not all that eager to part with many. I probably have too many black powder conical bullet molds since I tend to mostly shoot round ball, but I don't really want to let any of those go. I do have one that I am really not sure why I bought it, a Noe 315-115-RF. Maybe this was meant to be a plain base replacement for the lee 309 soup can bullet I like to shoot? Hmmm...

    Some sort of device to clean brass with no mess, no fuss and no complications. In other words, get somebody else to do it.

    Thanks but the .30 is for in store sale only while the .45 was available for online sale.

    I have an older Dillon 550 I acquired a year or so ago and haven't used. The primer system is not in good shape.
    I'm going to use it like a BL550. I'd like to get the base plate items to load for .44 special and magnum.

    Also, I'd like to upgrade my press. I have an RCBS Reloader special that's fine for short handgun stuff, but the opening is pretty small. I load my rifle stuff on a Lee Challenger Breech Lock press. I'd like to replace it with a Redding Big Boss or Big Boss II.

    I'd settle for some 40 degree weather...doesn't need to be warm, just enough to melt off the snow we already have before we get even more. Then I could actually shoot some of the ammo I have loaded up.
    I could always use some more Hornady LNL bushings.
