    Yes.

    Several Lee 'Pacesetter' sets (at a bargain price) at Henry Kranks were mentioned by the chap there - who I placed an order with today.

    Lee don't seem to offer a seperate Collet die in this calibre, or included in the 'Deluxe' set........ just checked the Lee site.

    If you don't fancy the Lee Pacesetter set you'll be lucky to find 7.62 Russian in another brand.

    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    Dear all, many thanks for your help! I spoke to Ian at ITL shooting supplies and he has ordered me in a pacesetter set.

    anyone have any opinions on the bullet head I should use on my 1942 B barrell? .308 or .311?

    I'm puzzled why you've ordered an out of stock set from Weybridge at a higher price when Kranks already have them in - on offer.
    You did say you need these urgently.

    Anyway I'd advise .311" bullets but suit yourself. ITL may not have mentioned that the Lee set is actually designed for .308" so if you were expecting .303 diameter then these won't be quite right.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    Dear All,

    So I slugged my barell using a .38spl lead head, and the results were interesting, i got a groove dia of .03075" and a land dia of 0.275" - that sounds extremely tight for a finn mosin?
