    Lyman Tru-Line Jr.

    Was given a Lyman Tru-Line Jr. today. Will mount it on a shelf in my gun room as a display. Funny the things we collect.

    I learned to reload over 40 years ago with a 310 Tool. Still have one with dies.

    This came with the 310 handles shown in the picture and dies for 30-06, 222 and 38/357.

    Those things are very good for the less vigorous operations.
    I have 4 of 'em, and I use 'em for seating & crimping, and each turret has a No.55 powder measure on it as well.
    You can keep it for display,but you can do some of your work on it.
    I use a stout single stage RCBS for resizing pistol brass; I wouldn't recommend full-length resizing Straight sided cases on a TruLine Jr., but case mouth and flare-neck sizing on bottle-neck rifle brass would be all right.
    They were not the ruggedest equipment, but they were excellent quality, and very popular back in the day.
    I am trying to narrow down some of the dies and whatnot, to accommodate just the calibers I reload, so there will be some TruLine and 310 surplus in my pile.
    If any of you are interested, PM, and I will post in the WTS section.

    There is company that specialized in the 310 dies, The 310 Shop iirc. They bought the dies I had listed on eBay.

    One of my LGS's just got a bunch of dies in for those tools. Was very neat seeing them
