I had to make one out of aluminum once to take apart some ammo that had bad primers. The plastic one would contain the case, but would not hold it in place under impact. Got pissed and made my own caliber specific one. Worked well, but was sorta messy. Now I can pull them with the Forster or the Ericson drill extention.

Re: Reloading Die Brand?

I got started W/Rock Chuck Bullet Swag when i was a teen when i live north of Redding Ca., then after about 5 moves in the Forest Service i ended up in Oroville with the RCBS factory and Huntington's store next to each other. Their Customer service is great and they will handle any issue as a drop in, they'll even pull a stuck case or similar issue while you wait. I don't think they are leading the pack in inovation anymore, which is a shame.

The new Summit from RCBS looks interesting for an intermediate press. I like the design but haven't seen one in the flesh yet. I like thye idea of an unside down die thats moves with the case stationary. RCBS also came out (last year) with a Dillon clone military crimp bench mounted removal tool for quite a bit less than Dillon's asking price.

I don't really beiieve there is much to 'innovate' in the realm of reloading dies. IMO, most bases are covered and I still like my RCBS front load competition micrometer seaters better than any other for ease of projectile insertion, repeatability and overall quality.

I like my RCBS but we need to add Wilson to the Poll.

I prefer Redding and Forster for FL sizing and bullet seating. The Lee Collet dies for Neck Sizing.

Re: Reloading Die Brand?

In my previous reply i ended stating RCBS wasn't leading with inovation, but that was probably sour grapes. I have the Case Master Gauging Tool and am disappointed, I think the station is doing to many functions and with many devices when you try and do that it ends up not doing any very good.
