    should have said push thru in the title.

    I was wondering if the push thru dies also decap, and if not how do you make use of them in the common progressive press's (LNL, 550, ect)?

    Thanks

    They don't decap. They are also better suited to a single stage press. The push through section is designed like the shellholder on a Single Stage.

    :supergrin: How could they? If there's a decapper pin, something is holding it in the die. How would you push the brass past that?

    You also don't use them in a progressive press because that would hold on to the brass. You're not using a standard shell holder with the push through dies. It's more similar to a boolit sizer.
