    UPDATE. I ordered one online,thanks for looking tho.


    I'll be calling some stores today but wondering who has the most dies on hand?
    I have a single shot with lots of brass fired in it,so a ns die would speed up my loading process.
    No,I don't want to try and do it with a fl die,btdt.

    wholesale sports in vancouver had them,but when that place runs out of something,they are out forever.They've been out of .22 caliber brass jags for 2 months now.:(

    if all else fails I'll order online but going and geting one is fine,quicker,and ges me to a store to window shop. win/win

    Lately the Wholesale Sports in PDX has been pretty well stocked. As of 3 weeks ago I know they had 2 or 3 RCBS die sets.

    You might try Fisherman's Marine at Delta Park or OC.

    Just curious, how is a neck die going to be faster than a full length sizer?

    you done NEED lube, cutting out tumbling/washings/drying off the cases.

    also after full lenght sizing most cases 'grow' and need triming.with brass fired in my rifle only,the body is fire-formed ,so only the neck tension need be addressed.

    NOTE. i ordered one online,I'll close this post .

    Not even necessary if you use a Lee Collet Die for neck sizing. Might not hurt to run a bore brush through the neck to remove any loose "gunk" first but no lube of any kind is necessary with these dies (except for a small amount on the collet itself inside the die body).
