    Why? I guess sizing the regular way isn't good enough?

    Tanfoglio.. if the brass is not straight, the mags are nearly impossible to load and less reliable.. That and really swollen brass.. Also allows you to polish post sizing with the primers in and load without lube on the case..

    Do you have to lube the cases prior to resizing them?

    I have been using a Redding G-Rx (which works with either .40S&W and 10mm cases) but this particular die is not carbide-coated so each case has to be lubed prior to resizing it. I heard a rumor that Redding may release a carbide-coated version of this die but I am not sure when will it be available.

    I do, but don't if you have to. It does make it easier, and I always tumble after anyways..

    I was looking for a reason to buy an Arbor Press.:upeyes:

    Instead of using my Lee, RCBS, or Hornady press already mounted.:supergrin:

    Anyone know the proper tool for cutting that resizing die in half would be? Just curious.

    I used a hacksaw with the locknut in the vice jaws to protect the threads.

    FYI, Redding's new Carbide die is in their newest catalog but is about $100.
