Depcapping Die & Swage Set Instructions

Decapping Die:

Turn the pin into the punch shaft hand tight. Insert the Punch Pin into the die body. Turn the cap down 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 then turn the die back out 1/4-1/2 turn and use the lock ring to lock the die down in place.

Pin Treads: Add a little sticky grease to the pin threads then turn the pin into the shaft hand tight. The pin body will mate perfectly with the shaft.

Swage Set: Put the Swage Case 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 extractor cup over the swage nipple. Do not change the die placement. place a case over the backer rod, raise the ram unil the nipple contacts the case pocket. Lower the lever and push the swage nipple into the primer pocket. 

Bent pin: If you over pressure a pin on a berdan or bad case and roll bend it, use a snip cutter to cut the pin off. Remove the decapping shaft and replace the pin on the punch shaft.
