Works Like a Charm

by Westcoaster, from Canada, BC Written on August 6, 2014
This tool from Lyman is well thought out.It's built tough and will last a very long time.
It comes ready to size and lube right out of the box.The lube heater is simple but effective.
One easy stoke of the handle and you've got a sized and lubed cast bullet to be proud of....

Quick & easy

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on May 21, 2013
There is a youtube video that I found that really made the alignment of the locking screw for the die a breeze to set up. Lower the handle, after inserting the die and putting the screw on top, just to the point of meeting. This will align the screw so it goes in straight, and doesn't get cross threaded. Easy to change dies. I cut my lub sticks in half so I don't have to wait till I'm all the way at the end to insert a new one. I just back off the screw, remove the cap, and insert half a stick, and keep on cranking out those boolits.
Pros: Quick, easy to change dies and top punch.
Cons: Getting the cap screw, that holds the die in place, started without crossthreading...

Save your money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WA Written on April 19, 2012
This is a piece of junk. Optics Planet doesn't have it in stock - Even though they will tell you that they do. It took three weeks to arrive, when it did it was obviously a return from someone else. The throw bar was bent the instructions were rumpled dirty and torn and it had half a stick of lube already melted into it. I contacted lyman and they sent me a NEW undamaged one.I wouldn't waste your time buying from here.
Pros: None that I know of
Cons: This is a piece of junk...

It's a good machine

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, OR Written on May 29, 2011
I was sizing 9 mm hollow points from a M-P Molds mold in it and discovered that the extractor was not pushing the bullet all the way out enough for me to get a hold of it. I put a shim in the u shaped part at the bottom so it would push the extractor further and it works. These are the only bullets I have sized, so I don't know if this is unique to these bullets, or if it will happen to other bullets also. Only a minor problem easily fixed.
Pros: Easy to use, easy to set up
Cons: The pusher that pushes the bullet back out of the sizer is not long enough....
Would recommend: Yes

Lyman 4500 Lube Sizer

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NV Written on April 27, 2011
After heating the harder lubes this is a fantastic unit. My only issue is the return push rod is about 1/8 of an inch short so if you are doing short bullets you need to put something between the rod ad the lower loop bracket. I called Lyman and they said they had a couple of customer calls about this but didn't have a solution.
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: Return push rod needs to be a little longer...
Would recommend: Yes

Lyman 4500 Lube Sizer

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NC Written on March 17, 2011
I have been a hunter and shooter since boyhood and a reloader for several years. I am fairly new at casting bullets. This is the best package deal to be found--lube sizer, lube heating rod and gas check seater all in one. Good product.
Pros: compact, easy to use for a beginner, heating rod is a plus
Cons: small caliber gas checks awkward to set for beginner...
Would recommend: Yes
