Bring me up to speed about this roll sizing procedure if you will. I understand that it takes out the lump caused by unsupported chambers, but my question is, does the case still have to go through the sizing die?


Most peoples' lives pass them by while they're making grand plans for it.

Case still has to be run thru the sizer, the roll sizing just brings the cartridge base back to factory spec!

So then why can't a carbide sizer bring it back to specs?

Because there is no way the case can be inserted into the die far enough to be sized where it needs to be, due to the case be held in the shell holder!

This is true. A Lee Bulge Buster kit does size the entire case and is not expensive.

Tell me if I’m wrong. Caused by an unsupported chamber. Glocks are famous for bulging cases. Hasbeen

I've got an old die set that's non carbide. Lubing is an inconvenience, but it sizes handgun rounds completely.
