Does anyone know what this is???


I found it while cleaning up my work bench and it looks so very familiar, but I can't place what it is. Any one know? It looks almost like a firing pin of some kind, but ???

(and I'm not referring to the PENNY!!)

Looks like a shaft from a Lee case trimmer.

that's what it is .Should be a number on it. That is worth 4 bucks.

I'd take some pics of mine, but I can't seem to find it now. That's what happens when you get old and senile.

does it have a cut on the threaded part cause it looks too good for a lee product the lee case length gages are fairly rough

its not really worth anything since it doesnt have the shellholder top

can you measure its lenght precicely from tip to the flat ?

I think it's a decapping pin from a Dillon die.
