    Leo, there's not enough room for setscrews in the lube holes, they are step-drilled and fairly shallow. Drilling the die all the way through and tapping the hole might work, but you'd have to make the hole quite a bit larger to do this, and would probably lose some lube flow control with the end result being getting lube where you don't want it. A tapped hole might also leave a more ragged edge inside the die, which could mar the slug as it passes through the bore of the die.

    It's simplest, and probably more cost-effective, to get dies that are drilled with just enough rows of lube holes to accommodate whatever slug you happen to be sizing at the moment.

    Good shooting,
    Chris

    Well call me impressed! To my surprise when I got home from work today, my package with 4 dies, 3 punches, and roller handle. They look nice. Now if my sizer would just hurry up and get here. LOL.

    Thanks for the great service Chris!
