Redding Pistol Carbide 3-Die Set
Titanium carbide differs considerably from tungsten carbides, and is the ideal material for lubeless resizing of cartridge cases.The difference is in the microscopic structure. Tungsten carbide if viewed under a microscope, appears
as sharp irregular micrograins resembling chunks of coal or quartz, and regardless of how well the surface is finished, its inherent structure remains the same.
Titanium carbide micrograins on the other hand, appear smooth and rounded, resembling the rounded stones you might find in a stream bed. Titanium carbide has the highest hardness of any readily available carbide, and those smooth rounded micrograins present a slippery, nongalling surface that is simply unattainable with other carbides.
Pro Series Die Sets In Titanium Carbide
The “Pro Series”, for use in pro g ressive reloading machines, is a specially prepared three (3) die set. Since the most popular machines do not make use of an expander die, it has been eliminated in the new “Pro Series” sets. The sizing die is the extraordinary Redding Titanium Carbide, complete with a decapping unit. A superior crimp can be accomplished if it is done in a separate operation from the bullet seating. For this reason the “Pro Series” bullet seating die is designed for bullet seating only, with no crimping feature. Our Profile Crimp die is supplied for the final crimping.
For cartridges that headspace on the case mouth, a Taper Crimp die is substituted. All dies in the set have a special large radius at the mouth for easy case entry, a necessary feature for progressive machines.
