Die Instructions

Depcapping Die,  Swage Kit and Sizing Die Instructions.

Decapping Die:

Turn the pin into the punch shaft, hand tighten. Snug 1/8 turn with pliers or add purple locktite to the threads to secure.. Drop the Punch Pin into the die body. Turn the cap down hand tight against the punch top. (Do Not use tools)  Raise the ram with a case holder on it, or shell plate, up all the way. Turn the die down until it makes contact with the ram or plate. Snug the lock ring to lock the die down in place.

Swage Set Instructions: Drop a swage rod in the die body. Turn the cap down hand tight against the swage rod top. Install the large or small swage nipple on the ram. Place the case stabilizer cup over the swage nipple. Do not change the die placement you set up for decapping. Set a case over the swage nipple, raise the ram until the nipple contacts the case pocket. Lower the press lever and push the swage nipple into the primer pocket. Lower the ram and remove the case. (See decappind die Instuctions).

Sizing Dies Instructions: Turn the die down until it mates with the press plate or shell holder. Then turn the die down an additional 1/8 to a ¼ turn. We recommend a lanolin Oil and 99% alcohol mix lube at 10:1.  Other quality lubes will work fine. (Do not use One Shot on Rifle Brass)  Be sure to get plenty of lube on rile cases. Pistol cases lube is optional. The die is very hard and finished in a gold color, the bore is highly polished to a super smooth shinny finish. If you decap prior to sizing, use the pointer, put the pin aside.
