Re: decapping die

Mine is a RCBS Universal. It works on both large and small rifle/pistol primers. But I use only SR pins for all primes.

Re: decapping die

Dose it use regular RCBS decapping pins and will it do all sizes of rifle brass?

Re: decapping die

I am no fan of Lee but I de-prime a lot of Mil-crimped 223,308, and 3006 brass so I have broken a couple pins. And for the price of the Lee die and the replacement pins its not a bad deal.

Re: decapping die

Thanks for the input guys. I too am not a fan of Lee but in this case I think it's the best way to go. Now off to the next gun show!
Thanks Dan
