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."

Win, seems you are right, my bad. This one is part of the last 5%.

We told about the gun, the caliber of the second die, the brand of the dies and the brand of the press. Since only 30-06 was mentioned I assumed that was the correct cartridge. Brands and die turns aside, we really needed to know the original cartridge in order to figger it out! You did good to see through all that. ???

It's small base die time.

I'm flattered.

Since I appear to be on a roll, I'll risk it all and mention a caveat regarding over-camming. Once the shellholder and die are in solid contact, no additional force applied will accomplish anything. The die won't compress, the press is flexing, and the whole process is being tortured. The same does not apply for seating and sizing when there is not lockup. Going over-center then will assure that all slack is removed from the links and consistency is achieved. Saw a picture a couple of years ago of a Lyman press in three pieces.

Am I reading correctly that you solved your situation with case lube?
