Dual Ring Carbide Sizing Dies
Redding has solved the problem that has plagued ordinary carbide dies since their invention. The little ring in
a standard carbide die had to do double duty. It sized the top of the case to properly hold the bullet but then
continued to size the whole body of the case as well. Unfortunately, these two areas need to be sized at
different diameters, so carbide dies of the past have always been a compromise.
Redding’s solution to this problem is a unique
(patent pending) design, incorporating two carbide
rings within one sizing die. The upper ring is
positioned to size only the bullet retention portion of
the case while the other is located to properly size
the case body without overworking the brass. Sized
cases will not only look and function better but
brass life will increase.
