Reloading dies on sale at PSA

This is done by setting die that much deeper?

It takes measurement of the case after you size it, and the adjustment of the sizing die.  After that, you'll get "the feel" and hit it every time.

I am a little late to the party, but have a question. I understand the desirability of using a small base resizing die for an autoloader. I also noticed a lot of you use Lee dies. Are these "small base"? I find no reference for small base dies on Lees web site.

Me either. I ended up buying RCBS small base die set

I have never used a case gauge in all my years reloading. Never really had a need for one. I guess as a quick trim needed indicator it would be useful but calipers work for me.

Thanks, I wasn't sure if it showed any deformation even if cases measure  within spec or what.

i use them on all calibers i reload.  they show case length min/max. they will show shoulder problems. after running case through resizer you can check it with case guage to make sure it will chamber. after cartridge is reloaded you can check if it will chamber. a case guage is a very useful tool

Anybody use these? Necessary, just helpful, or useless?

Lyman has a billet machined block that does a bunch of different cases, in one.  They have a couple of these.  Then, they have the individual ones, per caliber.  Depending on what you load, you might want to check the ones that do several common calibers.  If you're shooting something weird, you'll need the individual gauge.

Interesting,  I haven't seen those before.
