Technical Information

Material: 4140 chrome moly steel

  • Length = 3.875"
  • Width = 3/4"

  • Standard 7/8" x 14 Thread Size
  • Knurled Upper

  • Not a finished die. Must be reamed to the cartridge specifications of your choice.
  • Upper end must be drilled and tapped for internal die parts such as the decapping/expander unit as well as the seater stem (available from RCBS).
  • Lock ring for setting the die for a desired cartridge length not included (available from RCBS).
  • Pilot hole of listed caliber drilled through die body
  • Die body is made of the same material as used by RCBS and other manufacturers. Heat treating is generally not necessary as the die body will last a long time after cutting to the correct dimensions, as the body will then only have contact from the brass cartridge cases. However, if heat treating is desired, heat to 1650 - 1700 degrees F and then allow to cool slowly for 3 to 6 hours.
