Reload belted magnum cases 20 times now.

I have a patented resizing die that was recently advertised in the top 10 shooting magazines. With this die, you can now get up to 20 reloadings from your belted magnum cases instead of just 2 or 3 times. You can see it on a web site that we devoted to this one product. Take a look at www.larrywillis.com and you can also read the article that I wrote about it, for Precision Shooting magazine (Feb issue)

Larry,

See my message posted on 3 Feb. It should be at the bottom of this page.

Re: Reload belted magnum cases 20 times now.

Jim,
I just wrote a LONG reply to your question from Feb 3rd and answered the following note from Steve. However, my ISP just pooped out and it went nowhere. The best information on reloading belted magnums anywhere is from my web site at www.larrywillis.com You can read the entire article (with pictures and all) that I wrote for Precision Shooting (Feb issue) that will answer any question about why our die is required with belted magnums. Anyone can email me at it@mpinet.net and get a much faster answer.

Re: Reload belted magnum cases 20 times now.

Mark,
I wish that I could afford to give out free dies. These dies are extremely expensive to make and the price has to be firm for this reason. These dies are twice as hard as conventional dies and tolerances are machined to .0002" on CNC lathes. It's not hard to pay for itself when you can load your cases 20 times each. This one die & collet works on all belted magnums (except 224,240,378 and 460 Wby) and the top of the case serves as a belted magnum case width gauge. That's not bad performance from onetool. Read about it here:web page

Re: Reload belted magnum cases 20 times now.

Larry,
I've never had a problem loading any belted 338wm, 416wby or 300wm MANY more than 2 or 3 times.

I just don't see the need. Am I the exception?

Seriously, I thought by your topic you were just getting a few more loadings than I am so I figured I'd see how. I load mine pretty hot and figured I could get more if I wanted to back down some.

The cases that cost me the most, the 416wby, you can't help with anyway.

First time I heard people having trouble with belted cases was a couple months ago, and this die was mentioned in the same article, selling it almost. Other than that I've heard of no problems concerning case life. People FL sizing I suspect IS the problem.
