I’m not sure, but will ask some friends that may know the answer. 

I’m suspicious they may not have. Or if they did it may be a rarer chambering.

Shawn,

Relayed from a friend.

My early Ideal list shows it as #43. That is for the 1890’s tools, but not the post war two 310.”

I hope this information is helpful to you.

Best of luck in finding one.

Sincerely,

Maverick

Possibly! If you searched and searched you might find it eventually, but it would possibly take years to do so. 

You might give this a try.

Got some more information that may or may not be of interest to you.

The No.6 tool (fixed loading chamber, integral bullet mould) is listed for the .38-40-250 Remington cartridge in Ideal Handbook No.1 (1891) thru Handbook No.12 (1899). It is included in the list of cartridges for the No.3 Special tool (removable dies, no bullet mould) from Ideal Handbook No.4 (1893) thru Lyman’s Ideal Handbook No.27 (1926).

The conventional wisdom is that Ideal dies for the .38-40 Remington cartridge were identified by marking the die body with the number 43, but this cannot be confirmed from the Ideal Handbooks. The earliest official list of the assigned die numbers does not appear until Lyman’s Ideal Handbook No.28 (1927), by which time the .38-40 Remington was no longer listed.

Sincerely,

Maverick
