Default 30 herrett trim die

I lent out a 30 Herrett trim die a number of years ago... never saw it again.
I would like to form some more brass one of these days so I am looking for another 30 Herrett trim die.

Thanks for the help.

That may be a tough one.... E-bay ? Gun Broker ?

I looked on RCBS site..... They don't seem to be what they used to be by a long shot..... You may have to call to find out what they do or don't have available.....

Maybe find an old 30-30 sizing die, cut it off so you have only 1/8" extra material to work with..... I don't know your procedure, form, trim, neck ream, fire form, re-size, re-trim..... ??? It may take a little messing around to come up with a procedure that works on the cheap.....

Or re-chamber to 30-30 ?? I presume your in a Contender, likely an older model ??

Good luck.....

Default Got it

I found a trim die! Kind of by accident though. Ebay provides alternate choices for a searched item, and I mistakenly 'bought one now' for a .30/30 trim die. In the midst of contacting the seller and begging off on the deal, I found out that he also had a Herrett trim die. If I hadn't screwed up I may never had found mine.
Thanks to all who read this post

Nice pick up! I had never heard of this cartridge, and had to look it up. Appreciate you posting so I could learn about it.
