HORNADY CONCENTRICITY GAUGE

With its low profile and low center of gravity, this new one-piece gauge makes checking case variations quick and easy. Works equally well for right-handers and left-handers. Handles calibers from .22 to .45 with stainless steel neck pilots; .17 and .20 calibers work with the use of an optional carbide alignment rod and appropriate pilots.

REDDING COMPETITION BUSHING-STYLE NECK SIZING DIES
When you want the ultimate in control and precision, these dies incorporate a micrometer to position the interchangeable bushings so they size exactly the neck length you want. Dies do not use a sizing button, but carbide sizing button kits are available separately.
REDDING TYPE S SIZING DIE
These dies come with interchangeable neck sizing bushings that work necks less than traditional dies and extend case life. Available in neck-size and full-length styles, Type S dies' interchangeable bushings are available in .001-inch increments throughout the range of popular calibers.
SINCLAIR GENERATION II EXPANDER DIES
Whether you're necking up a case or truing new case necks, these new stainless steel expander dies will help you out.
