- Dual carbide rings
- Increases brass life
- Produces consistent, reliable ammunition
Readding Dual Ring Carbide Sizing Dies are the correct answer to the compromise that has plagued traditional carbide dies of all manufacturers since their creation. The traditional sizing ring is required to perform double duty which it can not do. It is required to size the case sufficiently to secure the bullet (with even the thinnest brass) which all do with some success. From that point however, all traditional carbide dies resize the remainder of your cases excessively. The price of this compromise is shortened case life of your overworked brass, unsightly appearance and less than ideal chamber fit which may lead to an adverse effect on accuracy.
The Redding solution is unique, incorporating two carbide rings within one sizing die. The upper ring is positioned to size only the bullet retention portion of the cartridge case while the other is configured to properly size the case body without overworking the brass. Your sized cases will not only look good and function better but brass life will increase.
Redding Competition Pro Series Carbide 3-Die Sets were designed for use in progressive presses when producing a high volume of precise ammunition is desired. These die sets feature a Dual Ring Carbide Sizing Die, Competition Seating Die and Profile Crimp Die (a Taper Crimp Die is included for cartridges that headspace on the case mouth). No expander die is included because many progressive machines expand the case mouth at the powder metering station. Competition Seating Die features micrometer adjustments for precise bullet seating. Shellholder sold separately. Carbide dies do not require case sizing lube when sizing brass.
