Description

Expanding the case neck is an important step in the neck turning process, but many reloaders are finding case neck expanding equally important even if not neck turning. Running new brass over an expanding mandrel as a part of your case prep routine is always a good idea. This step irons out any dings, prepares the case mouth for deburring and uniforms neck tension.

Our Expander Die Body is as simple as they come. Drop the Expander Mandrel in the top, secure it with a set screw and you're ready to go. The set screw in the top allows the user to choose to free-float the mandrel or to lock it tightly in place.
 
Utilizes 3/8" shank expander mandrels from PMA Tool, 21st Century Shooting and Sinclair International.
 
Includes a ReddingTM  Lock Ring.

    Great quality. Machine work is excellent and quality of the metal is excellent. My Sinclair mandrels fit perfectly

    excellent quality Die body

    Posted by Mark Palmquist on 8th May 2020

    Well machined inside and out. I had one when I was running single stage press now that I am running a turret press with multiple heads/calibers I have one for each caliber (just because I am too lazy to swap Die and mandrels between heads). Works perfectly to size for reloading or turning necks. I get more concentric necks pushing the mandrel down into the neck vs pulling the standard expander out so I removed the expanders in all my sizing dies.

    Excellent expander die

    This die worked great. With the 6mm to 30 cal neck expander installed it made fast accurate work of expanding 6mm dasher to 30 dasher cases. Excellent product and wonderful customer service.

    Expander Die body w/locking ring

    Posted by Bill M on 10th May 2016

    This is my first experience with an expander die body. With the appropriate size mandrel, it is easy to expand neck of rifle cases to facilitate neck turning. No other product to compare to or could have given 5 stars.
