After many many years of experience casting smaller pistol and rifle bullets I recently got geared up for the .500 S&W. I bought a Lee 440 gr. mold that to my surprise work pretty well. I also got the Lee sizer for a standard press that works O.K. with the liquid Alox stuff. The Lee sizer works O.K. also but is slow and requires the use of the Liquid Alox or pan lubing - both slow and messy.
For lube-sizers I have a couple of old Lyman 45 sizers and a SAECO that really work great. Since SAECO diesn't make a .501 sizer die I bought one for my Lyman 45 lube-sizer. Unfortunatly the Lyman just doesn't have enough leverage to size the big .500 bullets - I need more brute force to size these big hard bullets.
So the question is: do the current Lyman and/or RCBS lube-sizers have enough leverage and strength to size large hard bullets like the 50 calibers? If so - between the two which is a better choice. My collection of Lyman dies and top puches will work in either so that isn't a consideration.
Thanks in advance for help and info on this one.
