Armanov toolhead and free floating rings

Recommended Posts

Ordered the Armanov toolhead and their free floating rings.  Since all of my dies were perfectly dialed in, the depth of the dies were measured, wrote down the numbers to the sizing, powder seating and crimp dies.


The dies now tend to float and wiggle and supposedly these rings allow for perfect alignment.  I've also noticed that some people don't use the floating die in the crimp station? 


Anyone using the above care to chime in?  Have you noticed better results by upgrading the toolhead and die rings?

The largest benefit from these type of toolheads when loading handgun calibers comes from clamping it. Floating the dies does not add a lot more for these calibers. 


Bottleneck rifle calibers are another story where floating the dies (in addition to clamping the toolhead) does have a positive measurable effect in my experience.
