Thread: neck sizing die

    neck sizing die

    if I take out the pin and back off the die in the press so it is not touching the shell holder...does it become a neck sizing die or will there still be compression on the case wall?

    its a .270 so slightly tapered, I am assuming by decreasing the depth it will not size the full case, is that correct?

    If you 'smoke' the case neck and shoulder with a candle you will be able to see the die contact. No need to remove pin.
