Re: Am I missing something with the redding "S" type?
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.
