Am I missing something with the redding "S" type?

I have a set of redding "S" Type bushing dies. for my 338 lapua. I am still in the process of getting my dies fire formed (Lapua Brass). so I have not used my bushing yet. Where I am confused is why is there an expander ball? If I put the bushing in isnt the expander which is a given diameter going to undo the work of my specifically chosen Bushing? Maybe I am missing something?? Seems to me like the die would be better suited for a decapping rod that does not have an expander ball. can someone give me a hand with this?

Hey Mike

I can't speak for anyone else but I would guess that most use the bushing die without the expander. At least I do.

I suppose some will pick a bushing that sizes the ID only .001" below the diameter of the expander so that when the expander comes back thru it will do minimal sizing (and jerking the neck out of concentricity). That may be the preferable way to use the die if you don't outside neck turn to a consistant neck thickness or have perfect brass.

NEVER MIND! I just took my die apart and figured out what the extra little knurled knob is for (removing the expander ball) It makes more sence to me now! thanks

I deprime all my cases with a Universal deprimer. Don't like the extra bumping around when I deprime with a sizing die. It seems to happen right when I'm trying to feel the sizing process.

What make of die do you use for depriming? Was thinking of buying a Lee.

Mine is an RCBS but they are very simple and I'm sure the Lee will be fine.
