View Full Version : shell holder numbers?
10-11-2009, 12:31 PM
Yesterday, somebody gave me an old Herters press (Super Model 3). I also got what seems to be a nearly complete set of shell holders. Trouble is, I don't know where to find a chart that tells me what number holder goes what caliber.

Here's a chart: http://www.handloads.com/misc/shellholders.asp
Notice that several makers of shellholders use different numbers for the same shellholder. You have to know what brand you have.
I found this on another site. Ain't complete, but it's a start.
# 1 - 270/30-06, 45 ACP
# 2 - 30-30, 32 SPCL
# 3 - 30-40, 303
# 5 - 222, 223, 380
# 6 - 38 SP, 357 Mag
# 15 - 30 CARBINE
# 18 - Belted Magnum 300 Weatherby
# 19 - 9mm Luger

I sure appreciate your help. My shell holders are all Herter's, so I'm still looking to fill in the blanks.

Us old folks use to fondle the Herter's Catalog nightly. Oh how things change.
