    RCBS X-Die Experiences

    Has anyone tried the RCBS X-Die in the realm of precision shooting? I've been using it for a couple months with .308WIN and I'm liking it so far. I was wondering if anyone else has ever used these for a precision load, and if so, what were your thoughts? If you haven't tried them, then maybe...

    Gunsmithing Muzzle brake sizing

    Partial neck sizing

    I normally neck size my .308 cases with a Lee Collet Die and I wanted to try partial neck sizing to see if it improved accuracy. I took some Federal cases and turned the necks a little to clean them up and partial neck sized them with a Redding Type S bushing. I loaded up these cases and and...

    sizing die question

    I've recently had a 6.5x47 built and have been working on adjusting the full length sizing die for a minimal shoulder set back. I've simply used the "resize fired case, clean case, attempt to chamber, adjust the die down slightly, resize, etc" method until I achieve no major resistance when...

My rifle is shooting really well with full length sizing, but i just wonder how much better it would shoot with just sizing the necks. Anyone know anything i...

    Tumbling loaded rounds to clean sizing lubricant

    I've heard very negative things can happen when you tumble loaded rounds. Not from them "going off" in the tumbler, but because the tumbling action can act as a mill and change the powder, instead of a rod powder you can end up with a fine ball dust powder adn the burn rate is extremely high...

    Expander ball on a neck sizing die?

    I noticed that my Redding neck sizing die came with the expander ball on the decapping rod. Do you guys run the ball through after neck sizing? Seems counter productive to me. Especially when using a sized neck bushing. But, on the flip side I can see how it would provide more consistent...
