25-20 shell holder?

What shellholder, if any will fit the .25-20 ss?
The closest seems to be .32 auto, but the base of the 25-20 is thicker.

OK That was the one that was not in the set because it was in the Lee primer. Thanks

The C-H  shellholder for the 25-20SS and its offspring the
22-3000s  is  the   "2R"
Fits exactly, tho I have used the RCBS 223 shellholder
that works on Jamison brass, etc, except for old WRA brass.

Each manufacturer sets their own dimensions for their shell holders and I've discovered that they don't always cross over all that well.  I have found that in Lyman shell holders, #19 come about as close as any for the 25-20 SS, but a #9 will sometimes work also (call it manufacturing tolerances) the former is supposed to fit the 22 Lovell, so it should be perfect, but the ones for the 32 S&W are also pretty good.  I've got to find a perfect one to put in with one of my re- and decappers to use with my low wall in 25-20SS.

Hopefully resurrecting an old thread ... I have some old WRA .25-25 Stevens brass.  Have you found a shell holder from any of the manufacturers that will fit the WRA brass fairly closely?
  

I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't quite reached my "Expiry" date yet ...

The 2R works on both the the 25-21, and 25-25 Stevens WRA.

I have had the opposite results from beltfed (or I miss-understand) using it for 25-20ss. It will not work with WRA brass, but it will with anything that has a relief cut above the rim.

On the subject of shell holders - The Lyman type x1 and any 40 S&W will fit the base of 28-30 cases

OK, just checked a few minutes ago and just for reference a #10 RCBS won't accept the rim on the WRA .25-25 brass, but the #16 RCBS that was also suggested is a pretty good fit.  Plenty good enough to de-prime and re-prime brass.  If I don't find a used set of .25-20 SS dies then I'll use my .25-20 WCF dies with the #16 shell holder to neck size and seat bullets until I do.
