I inherited my 1960's Tru-Line Jr from my dad. I have have looked over the web to try and fine a shell holder chart and replacement parts but, to no avail. Any wisdom and suggestions on Jr, would be appreciated. Thanks

sure, numbers for "J" shellholders are the same as modern lyman numbers --
There may be a couple of exceptions --
There is also an adapter available to allow use of "new" button style holders --

I have that adapter for the button shell holders and the 7/8-14 die plate for it. That will allow ya to use the newer dies. PM sent to ya.

Forgot to ask -- what parts are needed ?
The tru-line uses both tru-line and 310 dies --
With those dies it is limited to neck sizing only -
I do think a few straight wall pistol dies full length size.
I know there are conversions to utilise 7/8 dies and is perhaps fine for some smaller cases but I don't feel the press has enough horsepower for large cases --
A site called "310 shop" deals in dies for 310 and some truline -- they are rather expensive now so finding dies on the forums is probably cheaper --
If you are looking for dies I have a couple sets availale.

I apologize for taking so long to reply to you. I wish had brought this up sooner. I am in the process of buying a new Lyman T-Mag II Press. I will use Jr to load the dies I currently have. Your right about how good it looks setting on the loading shelf.

The T-Mag II is a good press. I went to that one when i stepped out of the single stage press. then went to the L-N-L now. but still use that t-mag!

When I started to buy my Lyman T-Mag II, I located a Lyman T-Mag earlier version. Does anyone have one of those first versions for sale?
