    I am looking for dies for this and any loading information that I can find for this cal. A friend has the gun and asked me to research loading for him to see if I would be willing to get set up for it. The only dies I found were on Midway backorder for $160.

    Thanks for your help guys
    Mark.

    445 Supermag

    I have had 3 Dan Wesson 445 Supermag revolvers. I actually wore the bbl. out of one. I settled on the 220gr. FPJ Sierra., WW296 powder, & I feel Fed 155 lg pistol primers are a must. I used standard 44 mag carbide dies with no problems. Today we have Lil'Gun powder which I would use if I were to use heavy bullets. My 445 Supermag days go back to when you had to provide proof of purchase of a pistol to get 50 pcs. of brass headstamped "445 Gates".

    Thanks for the infoe, Do you ever have problems not being able to resize all the way down? How about with crimping?
