RCBS Dies

PRECISIONEERED® DIES 

For shooters who demand reloads equal to the quality of their guns. Each RCBS Die is made from case hardened steel. The inside surfaces of all dies are precision-drilled and reamed to the same exacting standards as the finest gun mechanisms.

Full-Length Sizer Dies for bottleneck cases have vents to prevent case damage caused by trapped air and for excessive lubricant. Headspace is held to minimum tolerances to avoid changing the case body length during full length sizing.

Dies are properly hardened and hand polished. This special RCBS finishing produces a die that will withstand years and years of the abrasive type of wear caused by case sizing.

All RCBS Seater Dies have a built-in roll or taper crimper as appropriate for the particular caliber. To seat bullets without crimping, simply unscrew the die until the crimp ring no longer engages the case mouth.

Large, easy-to-adjust hex lock rings utilize hex head set screws. Unless otherwise noted, all RCBS Precisioneered Dies have the standard 7/8”-14 thread. Dies are packaged in stackable, plastic storage boxes specially designed to protect the dies in shipping. Includes loading data label.

RCBS® Full Length Die Set

This two-die set is intended for reloading bottleneck cases, and consists of a Full-Length Sizer Die with an Expander-Decapping Unit, and a Seater Die. The Full-Length Sizer Die brings the case to SAAMI minimum cartridge dimensions. It sizes the outside of the case, de-primes and expands the neck to accept the bullet. The die has vents to prevent case damage caused by trapped air and for excessive lubricant. The included Seater Die has a built-in roll crimper to secure the bullet at the same time as it’s seated.

RCBS® Competition Dies

This two-die set’s Full-Length Sizer takes cases to SAAMI minimums. It features a raised expander ball to allow extra leverage for smooth, effortless neck expansion (.204 and .25 excluded). The Seater Die doesn’t crimp; it features a micrometer for super accurate bullet seating depth in increments of 0.001 inch, as well as a bullet loading window and a seating guide that ensures correct bullet alignment before and after seating. Note: Not for use with progressive presses; competition dies do not require neck bushings.

 

RCBS® SAFARI DIES - Full Length Die Set

Straight out of the RCBS® Special Order section, yet listed at a reduced price, the Safari Die Series covers cartridges typically used for dangerous game. The two-die Full-Length Die Set is for bottleneck cases and consists of a Full-Length Sizer Die with Expander-Decapping Unit, and a Seater Die with Bullet Seater Plug.

RCBS® SAFARI DIES 3-Die 1" Roll Crimp Set

Straight out of the RCBS® Special Order section, yet listed at a reduced price, the Safari Die Series’ 3-Die Roll Crimp Set covers straight-wall cartridges typically used for dangerous game in Africa. The .500 Jeffery and .505 Gibbs are made on 1-inch die bodies and require a press adapter bushing (not included). Note: The Rock Chucker® Supreme comes standard with a 1-1/4-inch-12 to 7/8-inch-14 press bushing adapter.

RCBS® X-Die Full Length Die Set

Never trim a bottleneck case again with the X Die Full Length Die Set, which includes an X Die Sizer and Standard Seater Die. The sizer features a specially designed mandrel with an expander ball and decapping pin attached. The patented design eliminates the need for repeated trimming after an initial trim off the maximum length to standardise the case. The X Die doesn’t shorten the length of the case.

 

 

 

RCBS® Neck Sizing Die

The Neck Sizer Die features an Expander-Decapping Unit. It resizes the case neck only (it doesn’t touch the shoulder or body) and de-primes.

TUNGSTEN CARBIDE DIE SETS (GROUPS B, C, & E)

 

The Carbide Sizer Die eliminates the need for case lubrication and cases do not need to be cleaned before sizing. Carbide Die Sets consist of a Carbide Sizer Die with Decapping Unit, Expander Die for expanding and belling the case mouth, plus a Seater Die with Roll

or Taper Crimp and Bullet Seater Plug. Carbide Sizer Dies are also available separately. Available in most popular handgun calibers and .30 M-1 Carbine. See die listings for caliber availability.

Note: Due to the length of the .30 M-1 Carbine Carbide insert, every fourth or fifth case should be lightly lubricated to eliminate sticking cases. 

 

3-DIE SETS (GROUPS B, C, E, LEGACY & SAFARI) 

 

RCBS pioneered and developed the 3-Die Sets for straight-wall rifle and pistol cases. In the 3-Die Set, sizing and expanding (belling) are done in separate dies. The 3-Die Set has a Sizer Die with Decapping Unit, Expander Die for expanding and belling the case mouth and a Seater Die with Roll or Taper Crimp and Bullet Seater Plug(s) for seating and crimping the bullet.
