    RCBS seating dies

    Hiya guys

    this subject may have been covered before but I'm just wondering if anyone knows the answer to this


    I have three RCBS seating dies each of them are stamped "RCBS .223 seat" but then one has "7" one has "9" and the last has "11" stamped next to the word seat


    anyone know if there is a difference or not


    Many thanks

    Lee

    Could it be the year of manufacture ? Some of my older RCBS dies have numbers in the eighties and nineties on them.

    It is, indeed, the last two digits of the year of manufacture.

    That would have been my guess until I read that two of the three dies have single digits. In any event, I doubt if there is any difference other than normal variances in manufacturing tolerances.~Muir
