Shot Show 2020: Four New Products from Lyman

Lyman has been introducing more new products in the last few years than they have in a long time! This year while at the SHOT show, I caught up with Spencer Karoll (a Lyman Engineer) to hear about three exciting new products Lyman is bringing to market in 2020. Check it out!

Lyman Stainless Steel Pro Dies and Die Sets

Since Lyman acquired Mark 7 Reloading, they’ve been innovating like crazy. Part of this innovation went into the design of a series of dies that are both “Professional” and “Progressive-Press” oriented, hence the “PRO” name.

From the Lyman Product Page:

Lyman Pro dies will set a new standard for reloading die performance! Designed for the tremendous volume of our Mark 7 presses, every aspect of these precision dies was carefully engineered for top performance. Of course, they work great in regular progressive presses as well as turret and single station presses.

Our first consideration was the material of the dies. Our size, seat and crimp dies are all made of stainless steel which was chosen for its toughness and anti-corrosion qualities. No more rusted dies! Our sizing dies are equipped with highly polished carbide rings for the ultimate in wear resistance and reduced sizing force. In addition, the sizing dies are equipped with a spring-loaded decapping rod system to ensure that the primer is forcefully ejected from the primer pocket.

Our rifle sets get our famous M die neck expander, with its famous two step expander plug for just the right amount of neck tension and case mouth flare. The pistol sets include our flare die which are designed to allow bullets to properly sit on the case mouth prior to seating.

Next is our Micrometer Seating die. This seating die has a micrometer adjustable seating head for precision bullet seating length. Its floating bullet seating punch centers the bullet on the case and eliminates excessive run-out.

Finally, each set is equipped with a taper crimp die (micrometer adjust) to fully remove any case mouth flare and to provide improved bullet retention. Lyman Pro dies offer more features at a better price than any competitive dies available!

Product numbers available: 7701000, 7707004, 7701008, 7701012, 7701016, 7701020, 7701028, 7701032, 7701024

For a LONG time I’ve been looking for a borescope that makes it possible to capture HD-resolution video and images, and it’s HERE! And it’s also wireless!

Lyman Torque Wrench Screwdriver

A torque wrench type screw driver is an essential tool for tasks like installing scope bases, rings bases, and ring caps! And now Lyman has their own!

Correct screw torque prevents damage to screw threads, screw heads, threaded surfaces and optics. Consistent screw torque will also help get the best accuracy from your firearm.

Lyman AccuSight Sight Installation/Alignment Tool

Lyman (a company that started off as a gun sight company) has just introduced one of the coolest looking tools that should make sight installation and adjustment both quick and “elegant”.
