I want to keep my CRB credentials so I had to run a few experiments today. I am getting ready to reload a new caliber and by all accounts need the large case feed plate. Before I ordered it I decided to see if my small rifle or pistol case feed plate would work for the 38 special, 357 magnum cases. First I tried the rifle and it dropped the cases just fine. Unfortunately it did not orientate the brass. Well one down and one to go. I changed to the small pistol plate threw in some brass and turned it on. Surprisingly enough it worked. I ran over a hundred pieces of brass and they all dropped properly. I think it took longer to get them to all drop but not enough to bother me. $39 saved! CRB credentials intact.
