    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Perhaps our definition of "cam-over" is different. "solidly abutting the shell holder" to me, anyway says making solid contact. Cam over in my understanding is simply going to the end of the arm movement where it comes to a stop. It doesn't mean we're screwing the die down .050" and "forcing" wth great might a "kathunk". how does one solidly make contact with the bottom of the die consistently without some amount of cam over? Earlier you'd mentioned your shell holder doesn't make contact with the die. So I'm a little confused. (Nothing new here)

    Price is right, but I don't see a whole lot of information on them?

    Ok, just got home from work a bit ago. This had me scratching my head as to where I'd heard or read it. Aside from various Internet forums (take those with a grain of salt), I was able to find it in my precision reloading manual "Metallic Cartridge Handloading- Pursuit of the Perfect Cartridge" by Mic McPherson. It talks about the shell holder "solidly abutting the die" for best results regarding consistent headspace results. He explains the reasoning for it there as well. It's on page 80-81. So two experts (Zediker and McPherson) disagree on something. Who'd a thunk it?!!

    I know. I was agreeing with you.

    I'd have to go back and see if I can find the reasoning behind it. Been awhile since I went over that material.

    True if you're not camming over.

    My understanding is cam over helps with shoulder length consistency.

    You feel you're getting them perfectly flat and square? If not, Redding makes the competition shell holders but I'm sure you already know that.

    That sucks about the die.

    Shoulder surgery

    Sorry to hear this TT! My advice, Get it checked out and get a 2nd or third opinion. Do so now before things get worse. Then you'll need to hammer the physical therapy relentlessly!
