    Need a neck expander die

    I'm needing a neck expander die that I can use to neck 9.3x57mm Mauser up to .400-.410 caliber to help solve a issue I've been having. I've looked at by RCBS and Lyman dies, but I'm not sure what will work for what I'm needing. Suggestions?

    I was looking to expand the necks of brand new .416 Weatherby Mag brass up to .458 so I could use it in my .460 Weatherby Mag. I found CH4D makes a tapered expander plug specifically for this purpose. I picked up the .40 to .45 expander plug and it worked perfectly.

    Check the link below for the plug with the range you need:

    The Lyman M die works well for for my neck expanding needs and are easily customized.

    I have several home made tapered expanding rods that fit into a standard 7/8x14 die body so that I can neck expand annealed cases in gradual steps. (28 to 30, 30 to 338, 338 to 35, 35 to 375, etc.) I use them lots!
    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!

    This is my method. Having a lathe makes it easy to fabricate stuff like this.
