Re: Rough decapping die

'Rough' and 'Terminal' is a big difference. It might be rough due to inadequate sizing lubricant and 'Terminal' when you pull the case and the shell holder rips the case head off and leaves the case in the die....

Been there, done that many times. An easy fix for me. Chuck in the lathe, tap the primer hole, lock the tailstock and crank back the spindle...out comes the case.

Put some more juice on your lube pad............

    +1 on the lube. You may want to get some Imperial Sizing wax and give it a try. You will never look back.

    I put more lube on the pad, it seems to help more. Ill try the Imperial wax next.
