GA1103 .58 Caliber Sizing Die Reviews
Product: GA1103 .58 Caliber Sizing Die GA1103 .58 Caliber Sizing Die
From: George W. Schwartz
Date: Wednesday 28 June, 2017
Review:

Using .575213 Minnie Balls the soft lead bullet will go in to the base of the ogives base. There is no camfor on the top or bottom of the die. I may add that myself if not satisfied with results. The minnie will push in by hand to the first lube ring. The die appears to be too small for the minnies I have. I am using this for a .58 Caliber Springfield Rifle EUROARMS. I want to paper wrap the parallel sides and tuck the twist into the hallow at bottom of the mini.

I need to do some measuring before I try this die. As noted, it seems too small for my Minnie Balls. I may need a smaller size.

I will update after I see how it finishes a ball. I plan on using some cartridge lube to help it through and not gall. I may polish the through hole first as well.

No instructions with the die, but it seems straight forward enough. Put die in vise, bush ball through with wood dowel, better yet would be a Lyman Minnie Ball mould bottom piece that fits your cavity on the bottom of the ball.

I will rate this as good, and post an update after I try it.
