Re: Reloading Dies - Question
"They make what's called a small base body die if that's what you mean. I don't own any of these, but from what I've read they're intended for custom chambers that are smaller than SAAMI specs."
Actually, "small base dies" simply restore the brass to actual SAAMI specs, not smaller.
Standard FL dies leave the case slightly larger in diameter than SAMMI suggests to achieve slightly better case life.
"Small base" dies take case diameters back to SAMMI spec to insure the loaded cartridges will chamber in rifles that have little camming power, such as autoloaders, etc.
