full length sizing die

the chamber on my rifle was cut on the minimum specs, my once fired brass requires full length sizing through rcbs die and then running it through a 3006 die with the decapper removed to get the wall knocked back in enough to chamber.virgin brass works like a dream but I dont seem to be able to get my once fired brass back down to that size. What kind of dies are availeable.any help is appreciated

Re: full length sizing die

You are in need of a small-base die. Standard dies accommodate generous, factory chambers. The small-base die is cut to minimum SAAMI spec. Redding has them in body, FL, and bushing FL configurations, but in limited chamberings.

Re: full length sizing die

Perhaps 95% of such problems are due to not screwing the size die down quite far enough. We MUST set the shoulder back far enough to allow chambering. Turn your FL sizer down another 1/16 turn and try it again.

It's doubtful that the expander plug, in or out, is any part of your problem.

Re: full length sizing die

b'tube,

As I read this post, the OP is using a 30-06 FL die to shrink the body of a 308W-based case. We don't know the actual caliber.

The case is a 7mm08 the sizing die is run down till the shellholder touches the die and screwed an additional 3/16 of a turn I am having to cam the lever over to complete the stroke. The press is a rockchucker.the dies are rcbs.
