Hornady 35 Whelen Custom Grade 2 – Die Set
Precise machining allows accurate reloading by offering easier adjustments, better alignment and smooth functioning. With one of the finest internal finishes in the industry, Hornady Custom Grade and Match Grade Dies provide a lifetime of reloading. They’re so well crafted that they will never break or wear out from normal use.
- ZIP SPINDLE DESIGN
The Zip Spindle design on all Hornady full length size dies positively locks to eliminate any slippage. A series of light threads cut on both the spindle and the spindle collet which allows you to make incremental adjustments by turning the spindle or you can easily “zip it” up or down for larger movements.
- LOCK RINGS WITH WRENCH FLATS
The Hornady Sure-Loc lock rings clamp around the entire die applying constant pressure across the threads to hold the ring in place. The locking screw tightens the ring without ever coming into contact with the threads, eliminating possible damage.
- ELLIPTICAL EXPANDER
Superior to “ball expanders,” this Hornady exclusive provides extremely smooth neck sizing and significantly reduces friction and case neck stretch. Internal threading prevents it from pulling loose and an elliptical expander eliminates the need for a separate expander die for necking-up to the next caliber.
- SMOOTH FINISH
Internal die profile is precision machined and polished to a smooth finish that delivers reliable functioning without case sticking or excessive friction. Hornady pistol dies feature a titanium nitride “gold ring” finish that’s harder than carbide and doesn’t require lubrication. The super hard coating is perfect for resizing pistol brass and won’t scratch your cases.
