Single Stage Powder Thru Die Login/Join

Not sure if this is possible...

Looking for a powder thru expanding die to mount a Uniflow on my single stage. Hoping to bell and drop powder in a single step to minimize a step in handling the cases. Not looking for a case activated set, manually working the Uniflow is fine. Any ideas on where to get a setup like I'm describing? RCBS Rockchucker if it matters...

Thanks!

IMHO you would be better off and safer if you used a loading block and do it in this manor.
less chance of squibs and kabooms in finished product.
You want production there is always Dillon 550 or 650's

T=You may be able to use the Hornady case activated powder die. The only requirement is the inside of the Uniflow be threaded which it is. If you don't use a PTX you would have to get the different spacers used for different calibers.

You could used a Lee die, and plum it to work.

More chance of me making a mess removing the charged casing from the shell-holder.

I just use the ol' loading block under my L-n-L powder drop in a powder stand.



pardon any typos...fat fingers and smart phones don't always play well together

You want a Lyman multi expand powder charge die. Been using one for many years.

You could get a Dillon RL450 Powder Die, Dillon Powder Measure Adapter, and the appropriate funnel.

Allot of Lee's stuff is cheap but I have to say the pro auto disk on an expander is great. Best 30$ I ever spent.

RCBS just released a linkage kit for the Uniflow.
Looks like it’s powder through expander.

When I was using my single stage I processed a lot of cases to the point of charging. When I needed ammo I would charge the case then seat the bullet. Never used a loading block. I just felt this was a safer way to load.
