    .500 express dies and cases

    Wanted to buy or borrow

    500 3" express die set and 500 3" related reloading items like a shell holder or any good 500 cases etc

    I have 5 new Bertram 500 3 1/4" cases which are easy to cut to 3"

    Bit of rocking horse shit!! You can get Bertram brass thru Dead Eye Dicks, not badly priced as you will only need 20?

    @Maca49 any clues on a trailboss load or BP load under a 450 grainer?

    the trailboss is piece of piss to work out...and blackpowder loads should be easy enough to find in old load listings.

    you probably already know it but take VOLUME of any other powder load listed and go 80% of that VOLUME of trailboss to give you starting point.
    LEE spoons are awesome for this.

    @Maca49 Gunworks and reloaders have the 577/450 in stock $210

    Outdoors supplies can get the 500 nitro dies in 4 to 8 weeks for under $200

    @Maca49 yes 3"

    But I'm in the process of getting some in from off shore which will only take a week or two.

    I realised the one die set will reload my 500 Express and a friends 50 Eley and 500 nitro double. Neither of which have ever been fired and now that I'm getting the Hollis Martini ready to shoot he's got all excited and wants to send a few bombs down range from his also
