Discovered something different in a new LYMAN Lube-Sizer die today. Had to buy a new .356 sizer die for my old LYMAN 450 Lube-Sizer, when I discovered the old one had gone missing. Got a new LYMAN one a few months ago, unpacked it into the big cigar storage box. Didn't check anything but diameter stamping.
Finally starting to lube-size some of the bullets I cast this past winter/spring.
Set up to lube-size some 9mm from a LEE 356-125-2R last March. Started adjusting the depth & discovered the " I " part of the sizing die had a CONCAVE TOP. Is this normal for new H&I sizer dies ? Wonderful place to store extra lube, on the base of the bullet. Neither of my other 2 new LYMAN sizer dies in .311 & .314 have concave tops on the " I " pin/shaft(?). Am I being pickier than usual?
