Ok, I do not want to sound stupid, but here it goes. I have loaded plenty of .308, 7x56, 8x57 rounds. I have never reloaded anything that required a 3 die set. I am looking for the correct way to set the dies. Die 1: I assume it is just like any other case sizing die and you set it to the top of the ram at full stroke plus 1/2 to 1 turn. Die 2: Do I set this to the same depth as die 1? Do I use the adjustment in the die to determine the amount of flare the case gets? How much do I want to flare the case for cast bullets, for jacketed bullets. Die 3: This is a seating and crimp die. So I can just use a factory round to adjust the depth that it seats the bullet. According to the RCBS instructions I can't adjust the amount of crimp. Do I really want that much crimp on a cast bullet? on a jacketed bullet? I suppose on the plus side of this is that if the cases came out of my gun they should fit back into it. My first attempt at this I belled the case mouth about 1/4". Is this to much? will the crimp hold the bullet in place? They didn't fall out when I turned them upside down and shook them. Any advice on setting this up and getting me started on this would be appreciated.
