Thatís abuse, not wearing out.

Dillon TELLS folks that they still have to lube their cases with the carbide bottle-neck dies and that they are only made for ammunition manufacturers who will be pumping out millions of rounds. The carbide dies will last for several million rounds, the steel dies won't. Yet, I heard one person on the phone tell them he would wait to get the carbide die any way...
Heck, just the little bit of taper to a 9x19 cast will cause many to have to lube them also due to pressures in the die. I find this, for some unknown reason, to occur about once a year for totally unknown reasons (9x19 cases have to have a longer carbide insert, so they have the proper taper.
