Re: Successful Reloading
a small base die will bring the case down to original specifications or slightly smaller. It is needed for tight chambers and some autoloaders with other than large chambers.
You're correct, it works the case head more than a standard FL die. I recommend the redding body die in small base form because you can use it and not have to worry about messing with your neck and, though they don't recommend it, you can size loaded ammo in a pinch,,, just make damn sure it's lubed up good.
