    Yeah, I've done the 308 die approach too and while it definitely sized the base of the case it pushed the shoulder forward a couple thou and made it difficult to bump them back enough.

    What if you FL size and bump the shoulder at the same time?

    A .308 die is obviously too long to bump a Dasher shoulder. My shoulders lengthened .002 after the .308 reduced the base, but I couldn't tell that it reduced the shoulder dia much at all. I just chalked up the growth to the same reason necks need to be trimmed. I had no issues pushing it back with the same FL Dasher die setting I was using previously.

    What I’ve noticed with lots of calibers is the die is to short or the chamber is a tad longer, so when you bump the shoulder back .002” it doesn’t get to the bottom of the base of case. It could be a shellholder issue or maybe dies are to short. But for the die to full size the base it’ll end up pushing the shoulders way to much.

    And depending on die, it could not be sizing enough to eliminate the dreaded “click”

    Sound like my last experience with Wilson. Will never buy a new product with their name on it again.
