CUSTOM NECK HONING OF FORSTER FULL LENGTH SIZING or NECK SIZING DIE
We custom hone the inside neck diameter by using a diamond stoning process. We enlarge the inside diameter to your specification to prevent over-sizing of the case neck due to thick neck walls. You may require this service for multiple reasons: 1) If you use some brands of brass cases which have thicker neck walls. 2) If you do not intend to outside neck turn case necks that have thickened after repeated firings.                                                          Please specify desired inside neck diameter. Note: 1) No more than .008″ stock removal from your existing die neck diameter is possible. 2) Honing is done in increments of one half thousandth of an inch (.0005″), meaning that your specified inside diameter must be either.XXX0″ or .XXX5″.
$12.00 plus actual return shipping cost & insurance Please allow 1-3 weeks.

Specify exact outside diameter desired. We can make special expander balls,”E-10’s”, up to three thousandths smaller than bullet diameter.

SERVICES

REPOLISH SIZING DIE
To keep the inside of your dies scratch-free, ensure the outside and inside of your cases are free of powder residue and other debris, case necks are deburred and the die itself is kept clean. This precaution also applies to the “E-Z” Out Expander Ball on the Decapping/Expander Assembly, where brass chips and other debris may inadvertently be transferred to the case and die neck. Chips that result from trimming and deburring, or a case that has not been deburred, are especially damaging to die interiors. These chips can become embedded in the die interior. The resulting brass against brass effect “galls” or wears away minute pieces of brass on the case, and gets worse with each use of the die. Repolishing $7 + actual shipping
