Re: Setting up Hornady Sizing Die
As a general rule, almost all dies can be set up this way, and it will work, of course... BUT, you will usually decrease brass life, and end up pushing the shoulder back farther than it really needs to go. The best way to set up your full length sizing dies are to set it so that it pushes the shoulder back from 0.001-0.003" from when it was fired (resizing the neck, lightly bumping the shoulder, and minimally sizing the body). The simplest way to accomplish this is to buy something like the Hornady Headspace Gauge set that works with your calipers. Then, you measure a piece of fired brass, resize it, and adjust you die so it sizes it more or less until you reach the point where you are satisfied with it (somewhere between 0.001-0.003" LESS than what it measured after you fired it).
Good luck, hope I didn't confuse you.
