Dillon Precision Carbide Pistol Die Sets
All Dillon Pistol Die sets include our sizer/ decap die, seat die and a separate crimp die. (Taper crimp for autos; accu-crimp for revolvers.)
*These dies are NOT compatible with the Square Deal B reloader.
Our sizing/depriming dies feature a unique "floating decap assembly" with a snap spring that throws the spent primer off the pin and eliminates the problem of primer "draw back" that often occurs when decapping military brass. The primary feature of Dillon's size die design the long, tapered carbide ring with a radiused opening remains unchanged.
That radiused opening, and its importance to progressive reloading, is one of the reasons why our seat and crimp dies are better. We found a way of manufacturing these dies that has enabled us to make the lead-in radius even bigger! The bigger radius makes progressive loading with our equipment even smoother but that's still only a part of the story.
Bullet Seating Die
Our new quick-disassembly seat die allows the user to disassemble and clean the seat die without losing adjustment. In this manner, bullet lube and shavings can be quickly removed from the die, thereby guaranteeing a constant seating depth. We've incorporated a "flip-flop" seating stem and a clip that enables you to remove the die insert and change the seating stem from round nose to semi-wadcutter without unscrewing a seating stem out of the die body. We've always included both types of seating stems, but the new double-ended design makes it a simple matter to remove a pin, reverse the seating stem, make any minor seating depth adjustments that may be necessary and go on loading in a fraction of the time it used to take.
We've made it easy for you to remove the die insert for cleaning without having to change the critical crimp adjustment. Once your crimp die is set for the proper amount of crimp, you'll never have to change it. This is especially good news for all of you who load lead bullets! Before, you had to unscrew the die from the toolhead and disassemble the die in order to remove any bullet lube or lead residue. Then, you had to start from square one to re-adjust the crimp. Those days are over. All you have to do now is pop a clip and the die insert drops into your hand for cleaning.
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Welcome to the Everglades Ammo FAQ! Here you'll find answers to our most asked questions. Still can't find quite what you're looking for, or have something we should know? Contact Us Here.
We're happy to help!
How is your brass cleaned?
Most of our brass is cleaned in commercial vibratory machinery with non-abrasive
ceramic media and brass-safe water and soap solution.
This process leaves a very clean, dust free product that is great for loading.
Some small batch brass is cleaned with traditional dry media and brass safe polish.
Where is this brass sourced?
Most of our fired range brass is acquired from private, public and law enforcement ranges.
It is then sorted and cleaned in our warehouse.
What are "pulled bullets"?
Pulled bullets are bullets that have been loaded in to a case and then removed.
Because they are not ‘new’, we can offer them at a discounted price.
We purchase bullets from companies that specialize in this procedure.
Additionally, we always thoroughly inspect pulled bullets to make sure they are in
excellent condition before we offer them for sale.
Do you sort brass by headstamp?
Some brass is sorted by headstamp and/or primer pocket size.
This will be clearly stated in the product description.
Otherwise, please assume brass is random mixed headstamp governed by incoming brass supply.
What does the Bullet Version mean?
The versioned bullets are a way for us to differentiate bullets with similar characteristics.
For example, a 223 55gr FMJ. We often have two or three types of this bullets available.
Even though the main description is the same, each version has slightly different profile and
consistency characteristics. You can use the price, product description and reviews to help you
decide which one is right for you. When you need more bullets, the version number will allow you to
reorder the same bullets consistently.
What does "FMJ", "JHP" etc. mean?
We use these terms to categorize our bullets:
BT - Boat Tail
CMJ* - Complete Metal Jacket
FMJ - Full Metal Jacket
FP - Flat Point
JHP - Jacketed Hollow Point
JSP - Jacketed Soft Point
LRN - Lead Round Nose
RN - Round Nose or Rounded Nose for JHP Style Bullets
SWC - Semi Wadcutter
SP - Spire Point
* Some companies use the term CMJ and Plated interchangeably. We do not.
CMJ bullets are true Jacketed bullets that have an additional jacket covering the exposed lead.
All of our Plated Bullets will clearly be listed as such in the name and product description.
