    Are you getting one instead of a small base die for AR reloading?

    I think the small base die works the brass down a bit more for cycling in the semi-auto actions. Sounds like it is particularly important if using brass which has been fired in other rifles. I text Quentin last night to find out if he has anything in stock. If your getting other stuff from overseas I could be keen

    The body die only works the body then you size the neck in a neck die.
    Small base die full length sizes.

    You can get a small base body die or a small base FL die

    The small base dies takes the lower part of the case down an extra couple of thou to help chambering in semis and pumps.

    I full length size .223 cases in an RCBS die onto a Lee shell holder which leaves about 3mm between the two. You need to be accurate setting up but once done, why would that not be as close to SAAMI specs as a "small base" die?

    Because some military chambers are rather large to allow for water mud etc and the base can expand lots in a large chamber.
    Normal dies will bring it back a bit but not enough to fit a "tight"chamber.
    Unless there has been massive over pressure should be fine back in the same rifle but possibly not another.

    The base or body will spring a lot being harder brass than the neck.
