Can't tell for sure, but is that a Hornady scale in the back? If not you are going to need a scale.
One shot lube works great for many and not so great for some. The key is to apply and even coat and let it Dry Completely
. It dose not work when wet.
After you get your Dillon set up for 223/5.56 run a few fired cases
through the sizing die, no powder, no primer. Grab your rifle and see if they chamber and extract with ease. If so great carry on, if not adjust your sizing die down
until they do. This is what Dillon means in their die instructions line #4.
The sizing/depriming die is a full-length
sizing die, manufactured to minimum tolerances.
We strongly suggest that a headspace
case gage be used to correctly adjust
the size die. Always clean and lube your
rifle cases before attempting to process the
cases (thru the size die).
1. Move the handle down to raise the platform.
2. Screw the sizing/depriming die into station
one of your reloader.
3. When the die contacts the shellplate,
back the die off 1/2 turn.
4. Use one lubed rifle case to test your sizing
and headspace. Readjust the die as
needed to achieve proper headspace.
5. With a case in the die, snug the lock ring.
Good Luck and Enjoy.
