I have a .30 06 Hornady New Dimension Die set and no matter how far I screw the die into the press it will not bump the shoulder beyond 0.00. I have a RCBS die set and to get it to 0.02 bump I have to screw it in so far the press handle goes a little further than half way.
Am I doing something wrong?
I have a question? Are you using SAAMI as the measurement? There wouldn't be any bump back is using SAAMI dimension and using a FL sizing die. The bump would come after fire case length, checking the length of them fire case. The bumping comes from reducing the length of that fired case at the shoulder by .02 from that chamber length. SAAMI length is a standard for all cases to use in any rifle of that the case is sized for, not yours. Because you are custom sizing your case for your rife not anybody elses. That how I am reading this. I probable wrong but that what I see here.Oh and the once fired brass chambered perfectly today at the range after full length resizing even though I wasn’t able to bump the shoulder back beyond 0.00 measured with a Hornady headspace comparator tool against another piece of once fired brass.
