Re: Body Die or Full Length Die for Shoulder Bump?

Just thought id add on one thing that pushed me towards the body die. My neck sizing die changes neck diameter by .005", from fired to resized, with no expander ball. My FL die changes neck dimension .020" from fired to resized without expander. Too much neck tension to use with no expander ball... to much work hardening with it... and then there are the accuracy issues of expander balls, and variation in inside neck lube to deal with.
Just my .02

abinok,
Good observation, the very reason why the body die was developed.

JB,
Wouldn't a body die be easier on the pocket then a F/L bushing die?

Definately...
you can get most of the body dies for a $20 BILL.
Any of the FL bushing dies on the market are going to cost twice that, and then after you buy 3 or 4 bushings for somewhere between $10 and $20 you are easily spending $100... or 5 times the body die price.

I know that the body does not touch the neck, i have, and use several.

According to JimR's original post his rifle came furnished with a Redding Comp neck die and a seater,

The Redding Comp Dies i use, ARE Bushing Neck Dies.
