Re: more .223 rem qiestions?
Different dies are designed to oversize the shoulders to different tolerance. In the case of redding dies they will set back the shoulders enough I promise repeatable case head seperation when doing it the way you listed. As I said in my first respone, understand headspace before reloading bottleneck cartriges, regurgitating generic instructions to a newb is going to get him in trouble fast. Learning how to properly size a cartrige with proper headspace as the guiding factor. Its OK to sound off to help people, just dont send them in the direction of danger!
