Case Kicker for Star Reloading Presses
The Case Kicker mounts directly to your Star Universal press.
The spring loaded fork accepts and holds the case in the shell plate at the taper crimp station.
On the down stroke, the ejector is set and when the die clears the case on the up stroke,
the case is ejected from the shell plate.
The fork returns to accept the next case before the dial indexes.
No modification to your base ring is required. This device was designed for use with .45ACP where taper crimp is used.
Prototype testers report it works equally well with .38 and 9mm.
Because the ejector fork is about 1/8" thick, your taper crimp die needs to have about 5/32 clearance above the shell plate.
If your taper crimp die comes down to the shell plate you will have to grind off the bottom of the die to provide clearance.
