Seat Die Set Up

Place a resized case (not expanded) into the shell holder and raise the ram to top dead center. Thread the die in until it makes contact with the case mouth. It is at this point it will begin crimping and you do not want to seat and crimp in the same step. Therefore, once the die body has made contact with the case mouth un thread the die about 1/4 turn. It is critical that all the cases are of the same length. For my high volume bang-bang steel target ammo where I have mixed cases and they have not exceeded max case length I don't care so much about being several thousandths off. For this scenario I set the seat die to the tallest cases to avoid crimping while seating the bullet. If you have additional questions about bullet seating dies feel free to ask them in this forum. I sure hope this helps. Highboy
