have used a set of Corbin dies for 20 years or so. My question is: What are the
various dies" function. I see the derim punch, and one other. My set has
separate punches for core swage, core seat, and point forming. It would seem
that there should be more, different sized punches.
Here are the functions of each die
1. 1. De-rimm die , removes the rim from a 22 rim fire case to become a usable cup
2. 2. Core
swage die , forms a rough core into a perfect core and maintains weight between.
3. 3. Core
seat die , seats the core into a cup before point form swaging.
4. 4. Point form die, forms the point
sizing die ( .224, other sizes on request ) , final size to ensure correct bullet size.
There are 2 bottom punches that come with the die set. .they are multi-purpose punches.
1. Polished punch : used for point forming, and final sizing.
2. Blued punch : used for de-rimming, core swage, and core seating.
The set comes with all punches needed to operate them.
I have several customers who also have Corbin swage dies, and I have seen much talk about the differences between my dies and my competitors dies. One of the main difference is the EASE of use of my dies. My dies can also make a larger range of bullets than Corbin dies can with just the punches it comes with. Granted, with enough money, you can buy all of Corbin products to produce the same kind of bullets.. but it would cost a small fortune.
With this set of dies you can make bullets ranging in weight from 45 grain to 85 grains, and bullets of several types: FMJ, Soft points, hollow points and soft hollow points.
I have also have had some reports that my dies can utilize 22 mag cases to make bullets beyond the 85 grain boundary. Something that Corbin dies cannot do.
The cavities in these dies are much deeper than Corbin dies.. I
also warranty these dies from breaking. This is something that Corbin
doesn?t do. I also warranty the punches, if they ever break, I?ll
replace them for free. Corbin dies are known to break, and
the delivery times for Corbin products are horrible to say the least. But
I do have to say, Corbin makes some FANTASTIC dies.. don?t get me wrong..
the guy makes some really good TOP quality dies.
But, for the price of these dies, and the warranty, you can do things to them that you wouldn?t never do with a Corbin die.
You can experiment with them, you can abuse them, you can
even swage things you wouldn?t normally swage with Corbin dies.
Our dies are tested with HARD lead alloy, we use wheel
weights to ensure they will perform even under the most extreme
conditions. Most, if not all, Corbin dies should be used with Soft lead
alloy only. Our dies can handle even ZINC alloys. They are Carbide
hardened to 54 RC, which is hard enough to last a lifetime of swaging and can
handle any type of lead alloy you could push into them.
On top of it all, our customers have reported that they have
boxed up their Corbin dies, because the Kaine dies are MUCH easier to use..
they require less pressure to de-rim cases, and less pressure to form the
You?ll also notice that the die punches are made very simple, if you have the shop tools, you can easily make your own punches, in fact, we share our die designs and punch designs with anyone, we?ll even help you to make your own replacements or experimental punches.I invite you to check out castboolits forum where we have a review thread going, we welcome questions about the dies, and you can get first hand customer experiences. The link to the forum thread is listed on the ebay text for the swage dies.
I grew up reloading with my father since the late 70?s. One of the things that impressed me most was how RCBS will replace anything for any reason. It was a company practice that impressed me over the many years of using RCBS, and so that is a practice I?ve built into Kaine Dies. We stand by our product, and we?ll do whatever we can to make people happy, even if that means giving a full refund.
