A must for any progressive reloader, the RCBS AR Series Small Base Two Die Set with Taper Crimp makes reloading for your AR-style rifle a lot easier.  Made to work with any single stage or turret press that accepts 7/8''-14 threaded dies, the small base sizing die sizes brass to minimum specifications that help ensure cartridges will chamber every time. A bit more forgiving die for crimping cases that have variable case lengths, the taper crimp seating die helps reduce the number of bulges and buckled shoulders when crimping in bullets with a cannelure. Comes with plastic storage box. Shellholder sold separately. Lifetime manufacturer's warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RCBS® AR Series Small Base Two-Die Set Been using RCBS products for years and without this knowledge this set of die set instructions would have been a little confusing. Although others seemed to have issues with stuck case on resizing, by using lube to lightly/evenly covered the cases with lube I had no issues. Follow the directions closely when you are setting the bullet height on the first round. I actually back the bullet seater out farther than the directions to ensure I did not deep seat the bullet and slowly adjust until I got the overall round length I wanted. July 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Work great! I bought these to make sure that I have good extraction from my AR. I spent some time talking with a rep from RCBS, and this is what he recommended. I am very happy with the results. Like all my RCBS products, these are easy to set up, easy to clean, and help me produce a consistent product. May 28, 2014

A: 
They will deprime the 5.56 NATO round. This issue will be when you try to re-prime the case. Advise doing a slight de-burring of the primer pocket before you start. Go slow...

A: 
Yes they will, with no problem.

You will want to address the primer crimp before reloading. Either with a swedger, or a military crimp remover cutter tool.

A: 
If I am not mistaken, these dies are made by Lee Manufacturing also. I use mine for my Mini-14 which uses the NATO case as well. But, I also use a Hornady case size die to check the accuracy of the neck and taper. I also run a small primer pocket tool on the case for "ridged" primer pockets common in military rounds.

A: 
The AR die set sizes the base of the cartridge farther down than the standard die set. These are used to ensure better cycling through AR type semi-automatic rifles which can be hard on brass.
