Good question. I haven't reloaded in several years (but am resuming this yr.). I would think it would be hard on the dies, maybe not the carbon dies. Might be worth looking into. What kind of steel casings do you have?

I wouldn't think so....they'd wear out your dies, and besides they have varnish to keep them from rusting and that would come off and foul up your biddness!:eek: :biggrin:

Trying to resize steel in a steel die will wear your dies out quickly. The varnish will also wear off, causing them to rust and lose structural integrity. Also, a lot of steel cases are berdan primed so it would be useless to even try. As cheap as surplus ammo and once-fired boxer-primed brass is for the various 5.56 and 7.62 chamberings, I wouldn't bother.
