Any way to use the lyman style with conventional press?

Not really, it would be easier to take wooden dowel and emery cloth and modify a Lee 0.401" sizer to a larger size.
If you have a heavy duty type Cast Iron press you might be able to shove them through the 0.401' die if it has good leverage.

I wouldn't attempt that with an aluminum or die cast press...  ???

I have done crazy stupid things to my RCBS Rock Chucker.

Like sizing a 40 S&W case down to .401 in a single "pass".  To do this I would have to set the sizing die high, and "walk it down" so I was using the maximum leverage.

The threads I saw said it could be done either way. I looked for a die for .406 but couldn't find one. Can anyone recommend? Looks like they make molds in that size.


I am the one that started the .41 cal bullet thread. I bought a standard Lee .401 die, and then sanded it out to .406.
