Re: Dies not sizing enough?

Yeah, when the handle starts camming over it contacts the shellholder, before it really rolls over. I haven't thought about those shell holders but really I think I will need more than the few thousands those would provide. I am only going for 1 or 2 thousandths set back, but i think(not sure if I'm right) I feel the body being compressed but I guess its not hitting the shoulder. When I measure it after that the headspace is no shorter and it still won't chamber in my gun. Should I have a smith take 1/8 or 1/16 of an inch off the bottom?
[/ QUOTE ] A simple way to tell if the shoulder is coming in contact with the die is to lube the case in the normal manner put a little grease on top of the shoulder, size and look at the top of the shoulder to see iff the grease has pull-back. Next: go on line with Hunington's and look at the shell holder page and read about the sets in different heights they come in. Also Redding offers them. I have faced dies in the past, always off the shelf variety, seems they are the only ones that ever needed the treatment.
