To bump the size of rifle brass, you’ll need to use a sizing die.

  1. Start by measuring the case length and diameter of the brass.
  2. Once you have those measurements, you can purchase a sizing die that will fit your needs. For example, if you have a .308 Winchester rifle, you would need a sizing die that is specifically made for that cartridge.
  3. Once you have the sizing die, place it in your reloading press and adjust it to the correct height.
  4. Next, apply some case lube to the outside of each case and insert them into the sizing die.
  5. Carefully lower the press handle and allow the cases to be sized down to their new dimensions.
  6. Finally, remove the cases from the die and proceed with the rest of your reloading process.

To bump the size of rifle brass, you will need to use a sizing die.

First, measure the length of the cartridge and then subtract 0.010 inches from that measurement. This is the amount you will need to adjust the die when sizing your brass.

For example, if a cartridge measures 2.010 inches in length, you would set the die to size it at 1.990 inches.

Be sure to check your reloading manual for more specific instructions on how to adjust your dies for different cartridges.

There are a few things you can do to bump size rifle brass.

  1. One method is to use an annealing compound, which will help to soften the brass and make it more malleable.
  2. You can also use a sizing die that is one size larger than the die you normally use.
  3. You can use a lubricant on the case mouth to help it slip over the expander ball in the sizing die.
