Cast Bullet Sizing and Bullet Lubrication Tool

PUSH-THRU BULLET LUBRISIZER

 

    The bullet is held in perfect alignment with the sizing die.

    The bullet is pushed, by it’s base, square  through the die.


     Fitting nose punches are not needed.  Change bullet styles

     without changing the lubrisizer setup.


     Change lube pumps to change lubes quickly


     Mounts into your reloading press so it does not take up room

     on your bench.  No more flimsy linkages.

How it works

    The punch snaps into the press ram just as a shell holder

    would.  Lower the punch down through the press frame

     threads and it will snap into the front of the press ram.

     The die body is threaded for standard 7/8-14 reloading 

     press frames and the inside is reamed to 0.463 to hold

     most 45 caliber bullets. 

 

 

 

 

    Screw the body into the press frame guiding the punch

    into the bore of the die body. Starting the die body

    into the frame threads is easier if you raise the punch

    to the top of the ram stroke and thread the body down

    over the punch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    Be gentle. Just tighten the set screw enough to take the wiggle out.

    Overtightening can damage the parts and distort the die.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    The lube pump, made up of the reservoir, piston, screw

    and cap,  slide over the die body and locate with a set

    screw in the end of the reservoir that locates into a hole

    in the side of the die body.  The reservoir can be attached

    either to the right or left side of the die body.  The pump

    screw has a left hand thread so the screw is turned clockwise

    to advance the piston.  This  forces lube from the reservoir,

    through the hole in the side of the die body,  around the die,

through the holes in the die and finally into the lube grooves in the bullet.


    The die screws into the top of the die body and seats

    against the top of the bore of the die body to form a seal

    to keep the bullet lube in place.  Use a small hex wrench

    or similar item to snug the die in the body. After the lube

    groves have been filled, turn the screw counter clockwise to

    relieve the pressure in the reservoir and keep from lubing

    the bullet noses.  The press ram is lowered, a second bullet

    is placed through the window in the die body,  the ram is

    raised pushing the bullet into the die and pushing the first

    bullet up into the counter bore at the top of the die. The first

    bullet can then be removed, inspected and boxed.  The screw

    is advanced (clockwise) forcing lube into the groves of the

    second bullet,  reversed (counterclockwise) to relieve pressure,

    the press ram lowered and the third bullet inserted into the die

    body window.  A common 1/2 inch box wrench is used to turn

    the screw.  

 

 

 

 

    To load bullet lube into the lube pump, unscrew

    the cap (counter clockwise) about three turns and

    slide the piston, screw  and cap assembly out of

    the reservoir.  The reservoir will hold about two

    sticks depending on brand of lube.  The best way

to fill the reservoir is to melt the lube in a double  boiler and pour it into the reservoir. As with

any bullet lubricator, this method avoids trapped  air in the reservoir. Back the piston up the

screw (left hand thread: counter clockwise), carefully slip the piston back into the reservoir and

screw the cap back on.  If it is inconvenient to melt the lube, skewer the stick of lube on the screw

and mash it into the reservoir until the cap meets the threads on the reservoir.  You may need to

alternately turn the screw  a half turn counter clockwise each time you turn the cap a half turn

clock wise. Leave the cap a quarter turn or so loose to let air escape.  When the piston reaches

the end of it’s travel at the bottom of the reservoir it is no longer full engages on the screw. 

Be careful.  Applying excess pressure to try to force just a little more lube out could strip the

threads in the aluminum piston.

    Where the lube is applied along the bullet’s shank is adjusted

    by screwing the die body up or down in the press frame and locking it in

    place with the lock ring.  In the picture at left, the die body should be

    screwed down in the press frame so that the bottom grove is filled and

    the nose is not greased.  Think of the bullet as in a fixed position at

    the top of the punch at the top of the ram stroke. Screwing the die

    body and the die up or down in the press frame moves where the

    lube is applied up or down. The lube holes in the die body span

    0.4 inches longitudinally.  Position rings around the punch facilitate

    lubing bullets with more than .4 inches of lube rings. Pick out a ring

    that, as it appears at the bottom of the window, allows filling the top

grove, apply pressure to the lube pump, with pressure on, continue raising the ram to fill the

bottom groves at the top of the ram stroke.

Dies are available in .001 inch increments.

They screw into the top of the die body.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dies are available to accomidate bullets with different shank lengths
