Reloading Dies

Reloading dies are tools used to assemble a cartridge from a round that was previously fired through a handgun or rifle. Components such as the brass casing, propellant, bullet, and primer are assembled together using a reloading press with various reloading dies for different processes, such as resizing the cartridge cases and seating the bullet in the casing.

Most reloading dies are made of steel or carbide. Carbide dies are more expensive and more durable, requiring less or no lubrication and cleaning after sizing. Steel dies cost less but need more attention, as they need lubrication before sizing and cleaning after use.
