The Redding Small Base, Steel Full Length Sizing Die - 223 Rem is a single specialty die for reloading rifle ammunition. Small base dies are intended for firearms with chambers tighter than SAAAMI specifications.
This die allows you to re-size the full length of the cartridge case, while also removing the spent primer. Use with Redding's Competition Shellholders for ultimate control when bumping the shoulder back.

This die has standard threads (7/8" x 14tpi), so can be used on most reloading machines. They are well suited for progressive reloading.
Case lube is essential on these steel dies. In general, we recommend using an easy-to-apply, spray-on case lubricant like Dillon's DCL, with lanolin (DLN-13733). When neck sizing only, an alternative is Imperial Dry Neck Lube (RED-07700), also available in convenient application media (RED-07900).
Case lube saves wear and tear on the cartridge cases and your reloading equipment; you'll feel the significant reduction in force required to operate the press!
This die set can be used to load the following calibres: .223 Remington and 5.56 NATO
This calibre is part of Redding's Group 1 category. Dies in Group 1 represent the most popular calibres Redding produces and are thus offered at the lowest prices. Dies in Group 2 are less popular, and correspondingly more expensive to produce.
