Type S Bushing Dies

Now anyone with a standard reloading press can benefit from advanced benchrest techniques.
typesbushingdie The amount of resizing provided by conventional reloading dies has  always been dictated by the manufacturing tolerances (SAAMI specifications) of the brass cartridge case itself. Reloading die  manufacturers have been forced to design the neck diameter of their dies small enough to accommodate the thinnest possible brass.

This may be as much as .008" - .010" smaller than the maximum cartridge dimensions typically shown in most reloading manuals.

Since the majority of cases that the reloader is likely to encounter in the field are thicker than the minimum specifications that the dies were designed for, case necks are often  resized excessively.

It can be easily demonstrated that excessive resizing of the cartridge case quickly leads to stress distortion and concentricity problems. The new Type S - Bushing Style Dies offer a simple solution to this age old problem.

Type S – Neck Bushing Die

The Type S - Bushing Style Dies, Competition Seating and Neck Sizing Dies, Body Dies and our New Competition Shellholders are all products of Benchrest and 1000 yard Competition.

The new Type S - Bushing Style Neck Sizing Die provides reloaders with a simple means to precisely control case neck size and tension.
  • Uses interchangeable sizing bushings available in .001" increments.
  • The adjustable decapping rod allows positioning the bushing to resize only a portion of the neck length if desired.
  • Concentricity is enhanced by the ability of the resizing bushing to selfcenter
  • on the case neck.
  • The decapping rod is supplied with a standard size button. This is especially useful for reloaders who are using commercial brass as is.
  • A decapping pin retainer is also supplied with most Type S - Bushing Dies except 17 and 20 Cal. This enables neck sizing without the use of the size button for those who sort and/or turn case necks for uniformity.
All dies are supplied without bushings. Click here for ordering numbers.

Type S – Full Bushing Die

Full length resizing while maintaining exact control of the case neck is often desirable in one operation. The new Type S - Full Length Resizing/Bushing Die accomplishes this task with the precision you would expect from Redding.
  • Uses the same interchangeable bushings (.001" increments) as those used in our bushing style neck sizing dies.
  • The adjustable decapping rod allows you to adjust the bushing position, sizing only part of the neck length when desire d .
  • Concentricity is enhanced by the ability of the bushing to self-center on the neck of the cartridge case.
  • All Type S (except 17 and 20 Cal.) dies are supplied with both the standard size button and a decapping pin retainer for the advantages and versatility described under our Type S - Bushing  Style Neck Sizing Dies.
Note: By removing the bushing and all internal parts, the Type-S full bushing die may also be used as a body die.

All dies are supplied without bushings.
