THE PROCESS
(RWS 50 BMG EXAMPLE)

CUSTOM EXPANDER INSERTS

Custom Internal Expander Inserts are placed into the WTC Sizing Die to open up the neck and body using a 4-step process.

1-4: EXPAND

Expansion opens up the case to a point slightly larger than the final case dimensions.

Punches 1 and 2 expand the neck, while punches 3 and 4 expand the body.

BODY AND TOP
SIZING INSERTS

The final Body Sizing Insert and a variety of Top Sizing Inserts, successively decreasing in size, are used to size the body, shoulder, and neck.

5-6: CLOSE + FORM

5: Closes the neck and starts to form the shoulder.

6: Closes the neck even further.

7-9: CLOSE + FORM

7: Begins to form the radius of the finished shoulder and takes the neck even further.

8: Advance the shoulder and close the neck once again.

10: FINAL SIZE

Completes the shoulder form and neck sizing

BODY INSERT BUSHING + CNC LATHE

The final sized brass is placed into the Body Insert Bushing, which is then colleted into the CNC Lathe.

OP 1: CUT

Cuts the excessive neck length, resultant from the forming steps.

OP 2: TRIM + CUT

Trims to final cartridge length and cuts the final outside neck diameter.

OP 3: CUT

Trims to final neck inner diameter to give us the desired size and proper neck tension.
