RCBS 308 WINCHESTER SMALL BASE FL X-DIE SET, S/H #3
Trim the case once - never trim again! The X-Sizer Die looks like a regular Full Length Sizer Die. Inside, the die features a specially designed mandrel with an expander ball and decapping pin attached. The patented X-Sizer Die eliminates the need for repeated trimming after initial trim of .020" off the maximum case length to standardize the case. The X-Die doesn't shorten the length of the case: the mandrel reduces the growth rate as the case grows as a result of the case mouth contacting the mandrel during sizing. Because of an extremely close tolerance between the mandrel and die neck wall, the neck wall of the case does not thicken as the case length is pushed back. Cases repeatedly sized in the X-Die will initially grow a few thousandths of an inch, then stabilize below the maximum case length with no discernable loss of accuracy or case life. The Small Base Sizer Die is intended for use for ammunition to be used in auto, semi-auto, and lever action rifles so that the loaded round chambers and extracts easily. The Small Base Sizer Die sizes the case from the shoulder to the head of the case a couple of thousandths smaller than a Full Length Sizer Die. Includes full-length X-Sizer Die and standard seater die. Shellholder sold separately.

Small base dies

Resized the brass that I had previously sized with standard dies. Brought them down to closer tolerances for loading in a new semi-auto. Nice dies, glad I bought them. I plan to get a lot of use from them. Everything packed well, delivery a little slower than I would have liked, but with everyone shopping from home, and the Christmas season, that's to be expected.
