    I haven't since I started 5 years ago and never had a problem in many thousands of rounds.

    Range brass with bulges can be tossed out.

    9mm is a tapered case, i dont believe they make an actual "case bulge buster" die for 9mm.
    LEE and others make a 9mm small base die (under sized) but i dont think its necessary.
    Most generally your standard carbide 9mm resize die is plenty sufficient.

    When you set your resizing die, touch off on the shell plate, then back it of a tiny bit so that you dont crack the carbide insert inside the die. And use some case lube, it helps alot!

    Good info! When i started reloading 9mm i did have my sizing die just off the shell plate . I noticed there was a waste forming in the mid section and several rounds wouldn't go into the case guage. I have since backed the die out to where the upper 2/3 of the case was being sized and noticed the finished product to take up a more desirable profile and only a small portion would not go into the case guage. Thoughts?

    I used one of the bulge busters when I was loading 40 S&W. Totally useless. EGW makes an undersized die for several calibers including the 9mm.
