Re: Redding Titanium nitrite bushings worth the money?

I use the Ti bushings in all of my dies. I originally used them without the lube but Redding told me that they recommend using a little lube for maximum consistency even with the Ti bushings.

Whether the Ti bushing is worth the extra money or not is like asking if the expensive motor oil is worth the extra money - Who knows

    You'll never know the difference in resistance on the press handle. Redding recommends lube on the TN bushings anyhow to minimize the stress and strains on the case neck, which might help reduce runout.

    Buy the regular ones, since you're FL sizing anyhow. I've got 15 of these bushings. Saved $180 by buying the plain Jane version. My lubed case necks never knew the difference.

    Thatís exactly what I wanted to know. The difference in price for 1 is no big deal but when you start acquiring bushings for multiple calibers the price difference between the 2 starts adding up fast.

    If I lube the cases anyway I donít think the difference could be measured to justify the extra cost.

    Thank you,
