Belted magnum cartridges have been
around for over 50 years and most shooters are familiar with the case expansion problems that occur "just above" the belt.
In order to reduce any tapered area of your case, a resizing die needs to travel about .100" beyond contacting
that area, just to reduce .001" from the diameter. Belted cases prevent conventional resizing dies from traveling
far enough down the case. Then the case is withdrawn and the brass "springs back" slightly. Belted cases
soon develop a slight "bulge" around the pressure ring (usually after just 2 or 3 firings) and when that happens, the case is useless.
Many shooters have discovered this problem when they find their handloads begin to stick in their chamber or when
they no longer chamber at all.
Our unique Belted Magnum Collet
Resizing Die has several great features. The top of this die serves as a case width gauge to show when "complete"
case resizing is required. This resizing die is used to eliminate the case "bulge" after using your full length or neck
sizing die. Our die insures that your belted magnum ammo will always chamber properly and your cases are now
able to last for up to 20 firings, even when using hot loads. Our resizing die uses a collet that fits over the cartridge
case, until it bottoms against the belt. The case is then pressed into the sizing die. The collet allows your
case to go farther into the die where it only reduces the area "just above" the belt. This ONE die and collet
is universal and works on ALL of the popular belted magnum calibers including:
.257 Weatherby Magnum, 6.5 Remington Magnum, .264 Winchester Magnum,
