@b2lee i normally decap on a designated press with a lee decapper. So I normally take out the decaping pin and expander like you said. i don’t have any experience with a arbor press, I don’t have any worries about using one just hadnt gone down that road yet but I was on Wilson’s site early this morning and they had everything in stock. Which seating stem do you use standard or vlds for the A tips? Sounds like a good way to go, thanks for your insight.
