Unfortunately the vast majority of “gun writers” are these days. 

American Rifleman, Oct 2021, pg 81  RCBS: Handloading's Helping Hand by John Haviland

The entire article is a scandal and a disgrace.  These are just a couple highlights. 

“The use of progressive presses to crank out volumes of handgun cartridges has also waned in recent years because of inexpensive factory-loaded cartridges such as 9 mm Luger.”

How does this mutt square his statement with the stone cold natural FACT that Dillon and Hornady Lock n Load AP presses were impossible to find on retailer’s shelves and were being scapled on eBay at north of 150% of street value through the entire time the author references?   Primers likewise.  Powder likewise.  Bullets likewise. 

“The advantages of sizing necks with a bushing are several. … .. .  Third, bullet seating depth is very uniform in matching case necks.” 

Really?  Just exactly what does one have to do with the other whatsoever?  I use the RCBS seating dies he is shilling for, as well as Vickerman, Redding and Wilson.  Never seen neck diameter, concentricity or runout have any effect whatsoever on bullet seating depth. 

I use Redding, Forster, and Wilson bushing dies and Lee Collet sizing dies and all are capable of very uniform and concentric case necks.  All of the former demand uniform case neck thickness (turned necks).  Unless the brass is run over an expander ball after having the neck sized down in the bushing, only the last will turn out a case with a round neck on the inside, where the bullet goes in, in brass that has not been neck turned.  Unless you are working with brass that has necks that have been outside turned… it ain’t happening in a bushing die that does not have an expander ball below it.  Period.  full stop.  Furthermore, if you are not running your brass through an annealing machine fairly frequently, you are not getting uniformity in the sizing of case necks due to varying spring back irrespective of what the dies you are sizing it with are.

Couldn't agree more on that article. I would say to him “Pay attention to me boy! I’m not just talkin’ to hear my head roar”

If you want to make God laugh tell him your plans.

It's probably an article he has been trying to sell for 10 years.
