Re: Redding S type die question
Problem solved (or close enough). I took the die out of the press and as I turned it upside down to look it over I hear a faint rattle, so I give it a shake and sure enough the bushing is rattling around like a BB in a garbage can. I then loosened up the locking ring on the decapping stem that I thought I had down almost all the way(finger tight)and put a little more effort into tightening it, sure enough it went about another 1/8" before the rattle stopped, backed it off about 1/16 of a turn per directions then gave it a try. Now it gets just about to the neck/shoulder junction.
Since this is for a 6.5 wssm on a savage that will be minimally headspaced from this new brass I'm thinking after its fired things will work out just fine.
Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.
