    Default Group buy for 5.45x39 reloading dies

    The group buy is a go, here is the pricing as received from Lee. The reloading dies for the 5.45x39 are $46.98 plus shipping and if someone wants a resizing die for .224 to .221, they are $34.00+shipping.

    At least 25 sets of reloading dies are needed to get the $46.98 plus shipping price (With at least 25 sets, Lee will waive the setup fee for a custom run). There is no minimum quantity needed for the .224 to .221 sizing die.

    I won't accept any payments until after the order is sent to Lee and I have confirmation that they are done and being shipped here. Shipping from me to those that are part of the group buy will be via usps priority mail with delivery confirmation (flat rate box). Payments that will be accepted will be USPS money order or paypal (+3%).

    Lee made a custom run of 5.45x39 reloading dies in 2010 for a group buy that bolt2bounce did at that time. This run will be made to the same dimensions as the dies made in 2010.
    If any questions, or if you would like to get in on the group buy, let me know.

    This is also cross posted at the AKfiles with permission of a mod there, and is also posted at theakforum with permission of a mod there. This will help to get the required numbers faster.


    Thanks.

    I'd be down for a set in the $40-45 range.

    I am sure a significant element of not stocking the dies:

    1) Large quantities of 7N6 cheap surplus.

    2) No brass 545x39 cases, let alone boxer primed.

    3) The giant ammo shortage of 2013 and the following reloading equipment shortage

    guys get in on this, don't pussy foot around. some of us now have a few years experience making these

    I love my dies from lee from the group buy run by Bolt to bounce, can't thank him enough and heck i bought a left over set, also make sure to get the resizer for resizing .223 projectiles to .221. ( its extra)

    get ahead of the game and get those 5.45 blemished hornandy projectiles if still around, and start looking for .222 remington brass or start collecting that 223 commerical range brass

    good luck
    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.

    Well for an update, I contacted Lee and here is the response I received today.
    Hey ****,
    We are currently not accepting custom orders for full length sizing dies.
    To view our available services for custom work, please go to:
    Custom Services - Lee Precision

    Sincerely,
    Raquel

    I had asked about both 5.45x39 reloading dies and about .224 to .221 resizing dies. I sent back a response looking for clarification, so hopefully some better news will come from that.

    C4HD is still making customs. Their onesie prices are higher than Lee, but it wouldn't hurt to see what they'd do on a group buy.

    Get them on the phone; they're not real good at replying to email. Ask for... uh... the guy who does the Africa hunts. My mind just entirely blanked out on his name.
