Manufacturer: Hornady 046453
Hornady is one of the most respected names in ammunition, and continues to innovate and improve their products. Improvements are made to Hornady's dies every year, and are included in all newly manufactured dies. Feature highlights include the all-new Zip-Spindle design, Sure-Loc rings, an eliptical expander, and highly polished interiors.
Hornady's full length bottleneck cartridge sizing dies ensure that factory specifications are restored. Full length sizing dies ensure the highest reliability in semi automatic firearms, and allow brass to be used in more than one firearm, by ensuring that the brass is returned to SAAMI specifications.
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.
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.
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.
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.
