Re: Cracked full length dies!

make sure the dies are set up properly. There should be directions included. The die was probably set up too deep or something. Don't re-use them!

Yeah, there is something wrong with the dies themselves.

I've been loading since '71 and never heard of a cracked die until just in the last couple months, when someone else said they broke a die and then this post. I've reformed a lot of stuff, some severely, even .308s to .22-250s (don't ask) and nearly stood on handle of a Rockchucker and never broke anything.

The beatings will continue until morale improves.
