Hornady is one of the most respected names in ammunition, and contineus to innovate and improve their products. These dies include a number of improvements with every series that improve function, and endurance.

Hornady reloading dies represent the finest in machined craftsmanship. Articulated details offer more precise reloading, by offering easier adjustments, better alignment and smoother functioning. With one of the finest internal finishes in the industry, Hornady Custom Grade and Match Grade Dies provide a lifetime of reloading. They're so well crafted that they're guaranteed never to break or wear out from normal use.

Zip Spindle Design: The Zip Spindle design on all full length size dies positively locks to eliminate slippage. A series of light threads cut on both the spindle and spindle collet allows you to make incremental adjustments by turning the spindle or you can easily “zip it” up or down for larger movements.

Smooth Finish: Internal die profile is precision machined and polished to a smooth finish that delivers reliable functioning without case sticking or excessive friction.

Lock Rings with Wrench Flats: The Hornady Sure-Loc lock rings clamp around the entire die applying constant pressure across the threads to hold the ring in place. The locking screw tightens the ring without ever coming into contact with the threads, eliminating possible damage from pliers.

Elliptical Expander: Superior to “ball expanders,” this Hornady exclusive provides extremely smooth neck sizing and significantly reduces friction and case neck stretch. Internal threading prevents it from pulling loose and the elliptical expander also eliminates the need for a separate expander die for necking-up to the next caliber.

Seater Adjustment Screw: Seater adjustment screw easily adjusts for bullet seating depths.

Retainer Ring: Locking retainer spring removes in seconds for easy disassembly and cleaning of the die.

In-line Bullet Seating System: Our seating system holds the bullet, the case neck and the seating stem in perfect alignment in the sleeve BEFORE the bullet enters the neck of the case. The system includes a floating bullet alignment sleeve, a floating steel seating stem and a built-in crimper for benchrest precision. Bullets are aligned in the sleeve as they enter the die for optimum seating and enhanced accuracy.

Built-in Crimper: The built-in crimper gives you the option of crimping without the need for an extra crimp die thus saving a station on your press.

Easy Access Die Boxes: Every Hornady die set comes in a convenient box that’s compartmentalized for dies, bushings, shell holders and a taper crimp die. Stackable and clearly labeled, they offer an organized and clean approach to storing your dies.

5.0 Rating Tough one to load - 2/3/2009
Reviewer: John
Good die set! First thing I noticed is the finish was first rate. When full lenth sizing the brass doesn't come out scratched like some other brand I used. Also the bullet seatting die works great. Stright walled cases are difficult to hand load. Getting the expander to center up in the brass can be a chalange. This is due to the S.A.A.M.I. tolerence and diffrent brass thickness. Also the full lenth sizer can over size the case in the neck area. This can lead to bulet bulg out, on one side of the case. The best way I found to load large caliber stright walled cases, is to get the Hornaday neck sizer for the cartridge being loading. I use the neck sizer and it completly elimanated the problum. Good luck, hope this helped, and don't give up it takes a little trial and error to dial in stright cases.
