Neck sizing dies resize only the neck dimensions of the brass, in order to seat and retain bullets properly. Neck sizing increases consistency, improves head spacing, and extends brass life by leaving the brass fireformed to fit only the rifle that it came from. Neck sized cartridges should only be fired in the same bolt action rifle that fire formed it, and should not be used in semi automatic rifles, as they require full length resizing in order to function.
The Zip Spindle design on all Hornady 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.
Our Straight Wall Sizing Dies feature a titanium coated sizing ring (gold ring). This eliminates case sticking and requires no lubrication. The super hard, smooth coating is used in high-pressure, high-wear tools to reduce abrasion, so it's perfect for resizing relatively soft pistol brass, and won't scratch your cases. Less friction also means less wear on cases, for longer case life. Spindle locks in place with collet lock for positive decap and easy adjustment.
