Al, Many bushing dies come with a button that works on the same principal as the mandrel you mentioned above. For some reason, all of that got a bad reputation as far as case concentricity. Supposedly the bushings straighten the case neck and on the up stroke the button bends the neck a little. As far as using the mandrel as the last step, most mandrels are very close to bullet size which would lead me to believe that you would end up with very little tension. Those with pleasant experiences should speak up and defend the process. WWE
