  1. I have scratches from their current dies. Are you sure that the one you have solved that for you? Flaring doesn’t have anything to do with neck tension unless you’re going crazy amount too deep. It’s the bore diameter of the sizing die that they made not tight enough.
  2. Adding the flicker spring works great in both the dedicated decapping and decap & sizing dies. That’s the reason I use them. Everything failed more or less miserably.
  3. None of those have anything to do with neck tension. It’s the diameter sizing bore that matters.
  4. Note that these do not come with the decapping assembly or the top cap.
  5. Decapping with the flicker spring has been literally perfect for me for many thousands of rounds. That’s why I bought them. What’s the cause of the scratching? I thought they used really well heat treated hard steel?
  6. Then go order the new 9mm TNT Match sizing die.
  7. I noted that already above. Let me ask you from a different perspective... What specific problem(s) are you experiencing with your current setup?
  8. By 'bulge' do you actually mean things like the coke bottle shape that comes from using the grossly undersized dies? In terms of actually dealing with the worst of the "bulges" from unsupported barrels, there's only so far the dies can get down the case. So if you (need to) care about those you'll still want to e.g., roll size your brass. Given the variability of various headstamps and projectiles, there have been some issues with the MA sizing dies not creating enough neck tension. Their newer TNT (tighter neck tension) dies take care of that. Whether or not the price is worth it to you is up to you.
  9. The non-DLC pvd finishes haven’t been offered for very long by SV. So there’s a lot more stainless guns around.
  10. Ouch! That’s horrible. How do the other timers fair in those conditions?
  11. I was worried about that too. Outdoors, I haven’t had that problem at all. Setting 5 or 6 have worked great. Indoors, I haven’t tried that yet.
  12. I found very little difference in velocity due to OAL with N320 between 1.18 & 1.20. Frankly, I expected more but that seems to be a node. The longer OAL did slightly reduce ES & SD but that's right at the noise level with mixed brass, variation in bullet weight & diameter, etc. (for N320 -- for N310 it's small but statistically significant). The barrels I tested with were 5.0" and 5.4" in length. Finally, note also that I got basically the same velocity with .400 & the .401 coated bullets in those barrels. The .401's in both barrels were ~30% tighter in terms of ES & SD than the .400's.
