    I just started to buy stuff for reloading i have a lee classic four hole turret press i bought a 3 die set (lee pacesetter), now the fourth die i need is for the powder dispenser and i belive this die is called the powder through expander die, how does that die work and i backordered one from midway so i want to know if i can still reload without. Heard somethin about the yellow scopp being able to do the same thing as the die.

    the expander portion of the die bells the case mouth out juuuust enough to seat a bullet. without that step your not going to have a lot of success loading straight wall cartridges.

    yep, either drop it through with the use of a funnel or attach your case activated powder measure. I have the powder measure drop extender for all of my dies.

    What caliber are you working on?
