Shoulder Bump?

I am reloading for a .257 Wyb and want to bump the shoulder back a .001 or so.

I have a full lenght redding die and am thanking about boring it out to make it a shoulder bump die.


? 1. Has any one dun this did it work and would you do it agen?

? 2. How hard are the dies on the rockwell seale?

Re: Shoulder Bump?

What you're looking at doing is difficult, besides messing up a good die. The body die is cheap enough if that is what you want.

Available online:

Graf & Sons - REDDING 257 WBY BODY DIE Add $4.50 handling/free shipping.

I'd estimate about a week. Soon enough?

Re: Shoulder Bump?

Why don't you just use the FL die and adjust it to only bump .01?
