I have an RCBS Lube-a-Matic II, and the space between the top of the sizing die and the top punch is inadequate for some long .45 bullets for my .45-70, like the Lyman 535 grain Postell and the Lee 500 grain 3R. I've been using it without a top punch, but that puts a ring on the nose of the bullet. I've been thinking of just turning a thin, flat pad with a stem on the lathe, to fill the hole.
I really need a second lubrisizer for harder lube for my pistol bullets, as I've been using SPG for everything, and it gets very soft during the summer.
But before I buy another one, I wanted to find out if the Lyman has a bigger opening? I don't want a Saeco, as I already have a good number of sizing dies for the RCBS/Lyman. Am I missing something?
Is there another solution I'm missing?
