Re: I'm stumped....please give advice/opinions


I have 3 die set also. My steps are to do the body sizng first, then trim the case to length and debur, then neck size and decap.

One thing that I haven't noticed mentioned is that if you are going to use bushing dies, you should really turn your necks to uniform thikness if you haven't already. This will affect the size bushing you need. You need to this because your factory neck thickness will have irregularities in it and these will be pushed to the inside of your neck by the bushing. To prep the necks for turning you should use the prpoer size expander button for your cal in your bushing sizer. I believe they should have provided this button with your die? After your neck are turned, you'll want to seat a bullet and measure the OD, or if you're in a hurry you can guestimate this and order a bushing or range of bushings.

Good shooting,
