    It is a FL die.

    Thanks again

    AJ, just to be clear for me to follow, the depriming pin only and not the expander? My thinking is removing the expander will likley result in a neck sized too small which the neck sizer (unless it is something that goes in the neck like a Lee Collett) will not correct. Please help me out here if I've got it wrong...

    Thanks.

    You are correct. I meant to remove the entire decapping assembly, and then to completely neck size (the way he's been doing it). I just meant that he should remove the decapping assembly while he is adjusting the die, that way he's not over working the necks of the pieces of brass he is using to adjust the die. I was thinking that he might be using a neck bushing die, but even then, he'd need to pull the expander through the neck once or he'd be over sizing the neck (as you pointed out).

    Regardless, he needs to bump the shoulder back a bit and also make sure the neck is resized correctly.

    I had not followed that it was for set-up only and thought I was missing the obvious! Thanks for clearing that up. Yes, that seems like a great way to do it.
