LYMAN 32 ACP/SW LONG/HR MAG NECK EXPAND (M) DIE
Many reloaders consider Lyman’s Neck Expanding (M) Die a valuable tool for improving the accuracy of their reloads. The die’s expander plug has two steps. The first step expands the inside of the case neck to just under bullet diameter for precise case neck tension in the finished reload. The second step expands the case mouth to bullet diameter or slightly over. This allows the jacketed or cast bullet to be started perfectly centered in the case mouth and properly aligned with the axis of the case neck. (By adjusting the neck expanding plug slightly deeper, Step 2 also provides a slight flaring of the case mouth for reloaders using cast bullets.)

LYMAN 32 NECK EXPANDER FOR 327 TOO
By Fred M.
on Aug 06, 2019
I did a lot of online research before committing my buy of the LYMAN 32 ACP/SW LONG/HR MAG NECK EXPANDER (M) DIE. I was having trouble with bulging rounds that frankly looked deformed and wanted better results from my reloading efforts. I was most convinced to buying the Lyman Expander die after viewing some Youtube videos about the importance of case prep in this phase of reloading. Two of the best videos I found on this subject can be found at these links: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcc91NArteQ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gkj2tl9uN68. If you need some convincing of why the typical Expander that comes with your die set may be giving you less than satisfying results, check out the videos. After receiving my die and expanding several cases, I was amazed at how precise the bullet aligned with and into the case opening; like the opening was molded around the base of the bullet. This fit apparently helps eliminate the bulging I was experiencing with my original Expander. BTW--although the description doesn't say it, this model (LY7342100) works with 327 cases; the round that was giving me problems. It's really impressive how exacting they engineered this product. Very satisfied!
