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. Featured highlights include the all-new Zip-Spindle design, Sure-Loc rings, an elliptical 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 Seating dies are the easiest to use in the industry. Precision seating is achieved by combining an in-line bullet seating sleeve that properly aligns bullets in the cartridge before any pressure is applied, with a simple seating adjustment screw for the seating stem that is as reliable as it is simple. Easy maintenance is achieved with a simple retaining ring that is easy to remove for thorough cleaning with no special tools required. A built in, optional use roll or taper crimp feature allows you to crimp at the same time that you seat the bullet, or apply no crimp at all with a simple adjustment.
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.
