Protect those sizing dies!

I will just comment on something that I witnessed decades ago at my dad's loading bench. He is really organized; a place for every thing, a thing for every place kind of guy. Think it's a Navy thing because I've got it too.

One day sizing 44 Mag brass we noticed a straight line from mouth of case to the end of the sizing stroke. Inspecting the carbide sizing die (RCBS) we noticed the carbide ring was cracked! The action of running a fired case into the die caused the ring to expand at the break ever so slightly and this left the line. Only way we could figure it had happened was the die had been dropped, but neither one of us remembered it happening. Only other explanation we could come up with was a defective carbide ring, maybe stressed when it was pressed into the die body.

You can't repair carbide. Looking at Pomeroy's set up I was reminded of this event.

Not critisizing, just saying.

My 2 cents worth.

PS: wish I had that many loading toys!

Hello, Why,,,, he does have a place for everything... it's all piled on and under two benches... It works for him...
And you are lucky that your die is/was an RCBS, they stand behind their products, call customer service. Most likely they will send a new die body, just don't drop the new one or adjust it for the normal cam over.....

I made an improvement on mine.

Those are 225-gr Hornady HPBT Match .300 BLK subsonics coming off the Lee single-stage at the moment.

Right after I took this, a bunch of .45 Colt +P 300-gr JHPs came through the Dillon.

That's my Colt M4LE on the left, having just finally gotten rid of that crappy factory Colt trigger in favor of a Geissele.

Did a little updating to my little corner of a spare bedroom in our house that my lovely (and she is lovely!) wife says I can use as long as things don't get *too messy*, not nearly as nice as most of you fellas but do y'all have any idea how tough it is to try to keep things compact *and* halfway neat with a clean freak of a wife looking over your shoulder all of the time? It ain't easy man!

I just added the T-Tracks and what a space saving udgrade that really turned out to be, these things are perfect for us space limited reloaders. I keep my bulk brass, tumbler and casting in the garage but pretty much the rest of it is here in a spare bedroom.

Been thinking of doing the same thing with a Hurst shifter ball, I found a company a while back that has the old school off white balls cause I don't like the newer bright white ones. The other problem I have is my handle uses the old bicycle type grip so I would have too have the end threaded. I'm just too lazy too flip the coin.

Great idea Stevie Ray, to use the T-Track system so your bench surface can be better utilized by switching out
different components while your reloading in such a small space....

My humble abode. Like many of you I'm using a bedroom but hope to one day have a small shop for my reloading setup.

A very old picture of my reloading bench after I initially set it up back in '10:



I've added a Rock Chucker just to the left of the 650, but I can't find any recent pics.

Love this nf1e@snet.net!

When I hear the intro to Mark Levins show and they say, "Broadcasting from The underground command post..." This is exactly what I picture!

Well, after about four years of moving around for work, I've finally been able to put together a setup! The Dillon is new. What else is great, I unpacked some boxes and found tons of components to load with. Remembering back, I stocked up after the last scare. It's like second xmas at my house!!!

Global Industrial workbench...this thing was well worth the money.


Here's where I'm at now. I'll have to post more photos as I increase operations.
