Re: Hornady Hydro Dies
That is good to hear. Richard Graves and I tested one of those chambered for his 277 Allen Mag. On a case that large and heavy(338 Lapua) there was no chance at all it would form the cases to the point where it was useful.
Hornady was concerned about this and offered to refund the cost if it did not work and they did so one can hardly complain about the service.
At the time, both Richard and myself thought the die would work well on the smaller diameter, thinner case walled rounds and your tests show the results!!
Only thing I did not like was pounding on the cases in my press. I think if you made up a solid fixture that the die could mount to it would be a much better idea then pounding on the links of a loading press.
